Addressing the nation at the conclusion of the presidential election, President Maithripala Sirisena said he was satisfied with his tenure as he was able to deliver many things to the country and the people.

He said even though what he delivered would not be physically felt by the people, he was able to ensure democracy, freedom, corruption-free governance and to create a humane society.

    Thanks for your service! Whatever said and done we enjoyed your leadership!

    Mango banana tangerine Saturday, 16 November 2019 06:38 PM

    Of course you are. During your tenure you ensured you have destroyed democracy, freedom, corruption-free governance and the ability to create a corrupt society.

    cineha Saturday, 16 November 2019 06:39 PM

    Rubbish.....also please tell us as to what justification you had to pardon a particular convict twice during your tenor in office.

    Dillan Saturday, 16 November 2019 06:40 PM

    You created a karuna to SLFP. Thanks

    Shehan Saturday, 16 November 2019 06:42 PM

    One thing you failed in mage way and entire country suffering to-date. That is Easter Sunday incident with all information in hand. So what you're saying here Mr President?

    Psg Saturday, 16 November 2019 06:45 PM

    Asanka Tennakoon Saturday, 16 November 2019 06:46 PM

    rama Saturday, 16 November 2019 06:54 PM

    LAL Saturday, 16 November 2019 06:57 PM

    YOU ARE HAPPY. WE ARE UNHAPPY. BECAUSE YOUR STILL HERE.

    eranda Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:09 PM

    We are unsatisfied as voters. Not able to fullfill any promises/ 100 day joke A bomb A coup Finally a criminal release

    Sat-His Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:09 PM

    Well, well, at least one is satisfied! So your family members are NOT!!!

    Warren Raed Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:09 PM

    Obviously because you robbed Rs. 800 million for your new house and 12 billion for your new bullet proof car. Anyone will be satisfied.

    Ordinary man Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:09 PM

    But we are not satisfied Sir!

    Independent Observer Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:11 PM

    My foot !!

    sam Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:12 PM

    what an IDIOT!!

    Hans perlee Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:14 PM

    Corruption free governance?? Really?

    Piyal Gurukula Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:17 PM

    We the people of Sri Lanka are not satisfied. Your satisfaction does not matter, because we paid you to do a job and you did a lousy job!!!

    Aney Yako Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:20 PM

    You were the worst president in the history of this country!

    Tony Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:20 PM

    You are and with your family but not us.

    liyanage Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:21 PM

    please thanks to the prime minister ranil wickramasinghe, he was behind all good things what you have done to the country for past 5 years

    Nadeesha Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:22 PM

    But people are not satisfied with your performance. Shut up and get lost.

    Sam Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:30 PM

    Only person who satisfied.

    Alisten Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:31 PM

    Mad man ,you are a traitor , u did come to power via Ranil and he used Mahinda to become prime minister

    Amila Amunugama Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:31 PM

    The most difficult task is to change the momentum to right direction for a social democracy. You did it Sir...the people of this nation should maintain it without asking immediate tangibles....

    SDS Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:33 PM

    Only you are satisfied. Thanks for leaving.

    andy k Saturday, 16 November 2019 07:35 PM

    lol whatever this guys smoking i want it

    Raj Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:02 PM

    Thanks for the service rendered by you Sir. You will be remembered as a Gamarala always.

    Jude Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:11 PM

    For starters it's ONLY YOU !!!

    sss Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:15 PM

    never mind what is important is whether the country is satisfied. A huge black mark is the events that led to terrorist attack by jihadists.

    Krishan emmanuel Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:17 PM

    One thing he forgot about his family business and wealth.

    Kasun P Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:18 PM

    no one else is

    sam silva Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:19 PM

    The worst President ever. Good bye

    Aviator Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:22 PM

    Only you are satisfied. No one else. Disgrace!

    Nimal Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:22 PM

    We, certainly, are not. Yahapaalana voter!

    Lankan Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:22 PM

    Ahmed Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:30 PM

    but we are not

    Slay Rabahaana Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:33 PM

    We are not satisfied

    George Harry Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:35 PM

    I am shocked to hear such a statement sir, we know you had a thoroughly inefficient

    M P Fernando Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:39 PM

    But we are disappointed and devastated.

    senna Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:42 PM

    But nobody else is except the murderer you released from prison a few days ago.

    TONY Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:46 PM

    YES INCLUDING VIOLATING THE CONSTITUTION WITHOUT HIS KNOWLEDGE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH MORE HEALTHIER IF HE ONLY DID NOT GO BEHIND MR

    Me Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:49 PM

    Who asked for your dumb opinion? We are most certainly not satisfied with you. You are best forgotten.

    DillonDP Saturday, 16 November 2019 08:52 PM

    Yes u stole killed and burnt the country

    Janaka from Matara Saturday, 16 November 2019 09:10 PM

    ..and therefore nobody can say that everybody hated your presidency.

    Sammy Saturday, 16 November 2019 09:18 PM

    We were not at all satisfied

    Rds Saturday, 16 November 2019 09:19 PM

    You are, We are not. But thank you for your service period without harming the lives of people who opposed you.

    Milinda Saturday, 16 November 2019 09:20 PM

    You can be satisfied within your capabilities but the patriotic people of Srilanka are very disappointed with your performance. You back stabed your own S.L.F.P boss and gave a lot of promise to be people. Remember the Guthila and Musila story.

    Roger Haĺliday Saturday, 16 November 2019 09:22 PM

    Yes you maybe but the question that one should ask have I satisfied the people who voted for me. Did I keep my promise. The answer to that is very clear.

    Jude Fernando Saturday, 16 November 2019 09:27 PM

    The monkey praising his own tail! This man will go down in history as the most ineffective and inconsistent leader this country has had the misfortune of having to put up with.

    Sadhu Saturday, 16 November 2019 09:48 PM

    Good bye

    Jerome Saturday, 16 November 2019 09:58 PM

    We too

    F Kismath Saturday, 16 November 2019 10:11 PM

    You are satisfied that you killed 250 plus innocent people through your willful negligence?!

    Mohamed NIYAS Saturday, 16 November 2019 10:13 PM

    But, we were highly disappointed.

    Simple Simon Saturday, 16 November 2019 10:13 PM

    Who should judge? But we are not - you leave a black mark in the history of nation. You tried an illegal coup. How many foreign trips did you make at public expense ?

    Disgusted Citizen Saturday, 16 November 2019 10:21 PM

    Well you might be the only one.

    Borat Saturday, 16 November 2019 10:26 PM

    But we are not

    Herath Dhammika Saturday, 16 November 2019 10:45 PM

    we were dissatisfied with your tenure and delighted to see you leave, you will be remembered as most ungrateful, inept, deluded, stupid, president ever!

    Teacher Saturday, 16 November 2019 10:57 PM

    Get lost. You have been just an idiot, an utter shame to Sri Lanka as you were incapable for this position. You protected corrupt politicians, you had let Easter attacks happened.

    IVJ Saturday, 16 November 2019 11:06 PM

    Sorry, not us!

    Aware citizen Saturday, 16 November 2019 11:33 PM

    Go home!

    raj Sunday, 17 November 2019 12:52 AM

    but those whom you associated at your end of the term tells a different story. You replaced form regime, which was accused of committed serious human rights violations and extra judicial killings. Unfortunately, you wanted to reinstate the that regime at the end of term and associated with those accused.

    Andare Sunday, 17 November 2019 01:47 AM

    One omission MS had forgotten to include in his statement is " I MUST THANK THE PEOPLE OF SRI LANKA FOR ELECTING ME AS THE PRESIDENT AS I WAS ABLE TO SEE THE WORLD WITH MY FAMILY AT YOUR EXPENSE"

    Eric Paramanathan Sunday, 17 November 2019 03:53 AM

    You are a very good man. However to be a President you need courage, wisdom, thorough knowledge of the security system, how to run the economy, a vision for our country.... Being a good man alone is not good enough. First foolish thing you did is to disable yourself by introducing 13th amendment. This proves your inability to think strategically and deep.

    Andrew Silva Sunday, 17 November 2019 11:41 AM

    You came with good intentions but along the way you failed miserably. What you most enjoyed was travelling round the world while your country and the people suffered.
