MR slams Constitutional Council

15 February 2019 11:21 am - 10     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The entire state sector has been collapsed today due to arbitrary actions taken by the Constitutional Council, Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa said yesterday.

He said this at the opposition leader's office in Colombo in response to a question about the law and order situation in the country.

"Criticising the Constitutional Council is not the same as criticising the judiciary or belittling it. Because of CC's arbitrary action, the entire state sector has collapsed today," he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    If he had a chance he would do the same as he did to a former chief justice.

    .with that diatribe, the former autocrat provides the reason why CC should continue, as assertively as it does.

    Those who disrespect the nation's constitution are now talk bad about the CC that was a result of 19th amendment because the same amendment prevented them succeeding in their adventure.

    Well said Sir - you have re-stated what everybody already suspects

    Arthur Friday, 15 February 2019 04:24 PM

    Of course you hate the CC. You were the CC and the state sector during your time.

    Dee Friday, 15 February 2019 05:57 PM

    There are two goods words as responses to your stance ! " .... ..." Shall refrain from saying it.

    We all know very well what is in Mahinda's mind. He wants his friend the lady to be appointed so that his and his family litigations can be managed.

    There was a story that "The wolfs are being worried because the sheeps are being left out in the rain.
