Doubts as to who is ruling the country: Lal Kantha

Though both the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and the United National Party (UNP) are urging the people to cast their vote for the ruling party, it is doubtful as to which party was ruling the country, National Trade Union Centre (NTUC) Chairman K.D. Lal Kantha said.

He told a public rally in Ginigathhena that the country had a unity government but neither President Maithripala Sirisena nor Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe were able to say that it belonged to any one of them.

“Members elected to Local Government bodies should be aware that they will directly receive the funds allocated for development work,” he added. (Ranjith Rajapakse)

    One thing we are sure about is the NTUC or JVP will never rule the country.

    So are you happy now? Instead of stability and development our people wanted uncertainty and lack of development. So we got it.

    Very good observation. Yes, there is a considerable doubt as to who runs the country and who takes the accountability for what is happening. It seems each one passes the buck to the other. We must have a pure parliament driven PM led political system or an Executive President led system. Now it is neither.

    Apart from "wHO is RULING", all parliamentarians get their votes by making false promises. Ultimately, we the public are cheated.

    It's the Unity Government that's ruling the country. Can't he understand that simple reality?

    I agree with you on this. If JVP get some good candidates who can represent country with high dignity and credibility, they can win the elections. problem with you guys is that you do not have international relations and no one to represent you international.
