Popular actress Nadeesha Hemamalee, who is set to contest the upcoming elections to the Southern Provincial Council on the UNP ticket, said today the two popular actresses Geetha Kumarasinghe and Anarkali Aakarsha, who represent the UPFA in the SPC would not be a challenge to her.

“I will not consider them as a challenge. It is the people who are a challenge to me. To me what is important or what matters is for people to accept me,” she said.

When asked for her views on land and police powers as laid down in the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, she said during her first election campaign she would not only answer that question but would also give good reasons for bringing back the 17th Amendment.

In response to a question by a journalist, Ms. Hemamalee said she would not consider the leadership struggle in the UNP as a big issue but that she believed in respecting the leaders as a matter of policy and said she would expect the support of both UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and front-liner Sajith Premadasa for her election campaign.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    Otherwise how did they ever get to where they are???

    Nihal Amarasekera Saturday, 21 December 2013 03:52 AM

    How can opposing party candidates be a challenge to her? Challenges will only come from fellow competitors for "preferential votes".

    Be Fair Saturday, 21 December 2013 12:12 PM

    challenge in what,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Ceylonese Saturday, 21 December 2013 12:48 PM

    Looks more like a beauty contest than a parliamentary election. Let the voters decide who is the most beautiful.

    Rubert Vanderkoon Friday, 20 December 2013 02:14 PM

    That speech was sophisticated? That sets a low bar for the voters expectations.

    sobers Friday, 20 December 2013 09:49 AM

    My dear, you are entering a dirty game of politics in Srilanka, Only corrupt will survive others will perish, its no more a gentleman's game.

    nadeeka Saturday, 21 December 2013 01:35 PM

    තමන් කියන්නේ මොනවාදැයි නොදන්නා නිලියනට වඩා හොදය.

    Mangala Saturday, 21 December 2013 01:53 PM

    Its shame this people refused UNP is introducing artist to politics and then after while they will crossed to government. Artist or sportier or who ever can come to politics if they are really be educated. Im not ruled out experienced people too. But this kind of moves are not helping to common people at all. Well in srilanka most voters are dumb idiots, so what else we can expect.

    Seg Friday, 20 December 2013 09:52 AM

    OMG

    grumpy Friday, 20 December 2013 03:48 PM

    damn. Why these uneducated ppl enter politics. God save my country.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 20 December 2013 10:00 AM

    Sounds like more sensible than the other puppet show-piece actresses of the UPFA in the fray.

    Fayad Friday, 20 December 2013 10:07 AM

    Very true Nadeesha what have they done to the people to pose a threat

    Padma Friday, 20 December 2013 10:30 AM

    Your first speech has a sophisticated and cultured look, start is ok will see….

    Rubert Vanderkoon Friday, 20 December 2013 10:55 AM

    Is UNP this bankrupt? Can they not find any educated people to field as candidates? This is a very sad episode for the future of the party.

    taurus Friday, 20 December 2013 10:55 AM

    In bed, Geetha and Anarkali have more experience than you.

    Shehan Friday, 20 December 2013 11:14 AM

    What the hell?
    What SL needs is intellectuals enter politics and take our country forward...
    Not drug dealers, murderers, thugs, rapists, circus clowns, or ACTORS!

    Ranjith Silva Friday, 20 December 2013 11:19 AM

    Now Sajith will come running.

    Dee Friday, 20 December 2013 11:34 AM

    an s !!!kith udugama Sunday, 22 December 2013 01:02 PM

    Oyala okkoma Dannawa nay.. Apata kiyanna Monawada karanna ono.

    Calistus senior Friday, 20 December 2013 12:02 PM

    One way to makeup your mind If you are a supporter of UNP, ha.. haa

    Sonali De Silva Friday, 20 December 2013 12:12 PM

    Next Tele drama - Battle Of The Stars.. Or just imagine parliament full of tele stars. Now that will be entertainment beyond words.

    Ramesh G Saturday, 21 December 2013 09:27 AM

    After Wining... change the party and join the Government & UPFA, like Upeksha ???

    C.K.Lankaputhra Friday, 20 December 2013 12:59 PM

    Give the fight. Don't be a Paba. Don't be even a Baba. Wish U good luck.

    Jayantha Saturday, 21 December 2013 03:14 AM

    Better than Anakarli and Geetha. She seems sensible

    MrRetort Friday, 20 December 2013 01:23 PM
