The lawlessness in this country can no longer be overcome through democratic means but through a well- organised struggle by all parties and civil society groups, United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremeisnghe said today.

He expressed these views when he met the members of the Organisation for Good Governance at his office.

Mr. Wickremesinghe said it was high time for all political parties and other civil society organisations to get together and organise themselves from grassroots level if this government was to be overthrown.

“One cannot expect good governance from this regime and therefore it is high time for all forces to get together and overthrow this undemocratic and dictatorial regime,” he said and added that democracy practiced by this Government only a word which had long lost its meaning. (Yohan Perera)

    Yes. But we do not need another dictatorship. We've seen how much democracy there within your party. I would be very surprised if you wouldn't do the same or worse, in case if YOU get elected.

    Yes, the dictatorship must be toppled. The one in the UNP.
