Envoys confident MS will do the right thing

6 December 2018 04:27 pm - 25     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A group of diplomats who had met UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe had said that President Maithirpala Sirisena will have to do the right thing at some point of time and that they were confident of such an eventuality.

Several Ambassadors and high Commissioners of leading countries have met Mr. Wickremesinghe at Temple Trees on Wednesday evening. Mr. Wickremesinghe who had briefed them had said President Sirisena does not appear to be prepared to work in accordance with the constitution, UNP sources said.(Yohan Perera)

    Most of our mediocre exports are to US, UK and the EU. The signs are not good for the Gamaya and White Van brigades. Good.

    Yes, Sirisena will eventually do the right thing but at the wrong time and/or in the wrong way, which will again be the wrong thing.

    They should have convinced him to step down and name Mr. Sajith Premadasa to save his party and our country from catastrophe.

    The problem is he is unable to do the both right and wrong things correctly. I wonder whether he is under any threat.

    We need a Premadasa type leader who once returned powerful UK ambassador for interfering with a local affair to throw out this western ambassador lot who violate Viana convention too. Its sad to see 3-years of "yahapalanaya" has brought anarchy to beautiful mother Lanka.

    Steps must be taken to hold an early Presidential election very soon to solve the current political crisis in Sri Lanka. The other problems will be easily fixed accordingly.

    UNPER Thursday, 06 December 2018 06:14 PM

    Why didn't they say that you RW should go and take an early retirement

    Manu Thursday, 06 December 2018 08:30 PM

    Prez is working according to the constitution. He is not ready to work according to your stupid policies that would destroy the country. If you are according to constitution why you did not hold the elections then?

    Til Thursday, 06 December 2018 09:29 PM

    RP Thursday, 06 December 2018 10:01 PM

    MS has forgotten why people voted for him. Perhaps, he doesn't care since this is his first and last term.Sad indeed.

    Onlooker Thursday, 06 December 2018 11:07 PM

    Envoys want their local agents in power. People want their representatives in power. Battle between colonialism and liberation.

    GH Thursday, 06 December 2018 11:33 PM

    President has done the right thing up to now. Unlike you President is never prepared to sell the country to foreign delegates.

    Rasheed Friday, 07 December 2018 11:29 AM

    Selling the country was taught by MR, now others follows it.

    Ghost Friday, 07 December 2018 07:39 AM

    The right thing by doing everything wrong?

    S. P. Ramkumar Friday, 07 December 2018 12:09 PM

    I think there are deal between you and MS. When you suck honey from flower please give something to MS also.share bond money to MS also.

    Jayanath Friday, 07 December 2018 12:34 PM

    Just conduct the election . We, the people of this country will decide who will do the right thing for them. Not white skinned scum bags coming from nowhere!
