The Rajapaksa regime should be defeated and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) should be allowed to function in order to safeguard democracy in the country, United National Party (UNP) National Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said today.

 

“Defeating the Rajapaksa regime doesn’t mean we need to defeat the SLFP as well. The SLFP should proceed without losing its base though that party has been limited to a sign board today. There should be two strong parties to govern a country and to protect democracy,” he said.

 

Addressing the 19th General Meeting of the National Railway Services Union at Sirikotha, Mr. Wickremesinghe said one political party couldn’t govern a country for more than two terms usually.

 

“A party cannot hold the office for more than one or two terms in a row, though it ruled the country in the best way possible. The typical procedure is two major parties to rule a country one party after the other. Therefore we should let SLFP go unharmed,” he said.

 

He said each party should be strengthened for a vibrant democracy.

 

“We may not come to the terms of the SLFP but there could also be patriots in that party just like in other parties.  Therefore each patriotic party should come forward to save the country by removing the Rajapaksa regime,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla and Darshana Sanjeewa)

    True, he is the only honest and conversant politician in Sri Lanka. By crossing over some UNPers are trying to betray not only the party but also the whole country. We have never seen a this much corrupted government in our entire life.

    Sir Please help the common candidate and also give the rightful place to Mangala Samaraweera in the party.

    Siripala Jayasinghe Thursday, 06 November 2014 02:53 AM

    Bravo Ranil! You are the m,an of the hour to save Lanka from all this chaos and injustice. You have vision, intelligence and integrity. None can match you

    Namal Perera Thursday, 06 November 2014 04:34 AM

    Forget party politics and support the common candidate to save our Mother Lanka. .

    If he is elected, would be the greatest ever produce in Sri Lanka. His presidency would be honest, uncorrupted, more democratic and transparent as well.But all depend on the luck of our future generations.

    I thought you were part of the regime.

    There are so many people who agree with you. He is the most experiencedstatesman who can save this country

    No Karu will contest and win the election and scrap the executive Presidency. Then Ranil will become the executive prime minister of the country and he will definitely turn around the entire economy almost overnight. He is the only person with that capability though he will never be able to contest and win.

    If he (Ranil) managed to beat the terrorists,when he was in power,he could have been Mahinda now.

    Sri Lanka needs balanced ideals.

    "A party cannot hold the office for more than one or two terms in a row, though it ruled the country in the best way possible. The typical procedure is two major parties to rule a country one party after the other. Therefore we should let SLFP go unharmed" Who has been harming the UNP all these years in defeat then ????
