The Mahinda Rajapakse factor is having a disastrous impact on the UNP and the corrupt groups of SLFP.   The SLFP realizing the defeat into the 3rd place at the election, it  is trying to use the name of Mahinda Rajapakse to salvage the sagging fortunes.

MR has not been given the authority by MS to lead the campaign.   This means MR is free to support any other group, outside Kurunegala.   The current thinking in the MR camp circles revolves around fielding all candidates of the MR camp list under a different Alliance to be supported by MR. This will isolate the SLFP candidates who will not be able to be benefitted from MR factor, as MR will be campaigning in support of his own Alliance outside Kurunegala.

It will also create a positive image for MR team, where every voter in support MR will be given an opportunity to direct its preferential vote to MR team candidate in each District as they can be directly identified as against President Sirisena’s men and women. Of course there will be a split in votes, but it will be a direct fight between MR Alliance and SLFP/UPFA in all districts, barring Kurunegala.  This stragegy will provide a great opportunity to the masses to eliminate Messrs Rajitha Senaratne, S B Dissanayake, Arjuna Ranatunaga, Mervyn Silva, Wimuni Soyza etc. from the political map.

On the other side of the coin, this strategy will also give an opportunity to the voters to reject the likes of Messrs Patali Champika Ranawaka, Anura Kumara Dissanayake,  Sarath Fonseka , Upul  Shantha Sannasgala, (Mr One Shot) Ranjan Ramanayake, Akila Wiraj Kariyawasam, Ravi Karunanayake.

By fielding popular Muslim candidates in the relevant Districts by MR list candidates, a direct challenge can be mounted against the likes of Mr Rauf Hakeen and SLMC.  MR camp must be able to field a commanding Tamil candidate aimed at defeating  Mano Ganesan, a political weed.

It will be left open to the likes of Messrs Ratnasiri Wickremanayake, D M Jayaratne whether to contest with MS or MR Alliance.  The other option will be to leave politics altogether.

It has been revealed that President Maithreepala Sirisena’s hold on UPFA and SLFP will be short-lived.   He is currently leading both UPFA and SLFP by virtue of the fact that he is the Chairperson of the SLFP, the main constituent party of the UPFA.  However, in view of the fact that MS did not contest the Presidential Election as a Member of the SLFP, under the SLFP constitution he is not entitled to be the Chairperson.  As MR is contesting under SLFP/UPFA ticket, he will be  entitled to take control of SLFP, and consequently the UPFA, after a successful legal challenge against MS or by majority vote at an Extraordinary General Meeting of the SLFP after  the general election.

In the campaign hustings, it will be apparent that the MR list candidates will be able to garner massive ground support against the UNP and SLFP candidates.   The main backup plan for  all MR  candidates, including MR himself contesting under the new Alliance is very much on top of the Agenda.

    An excellent decision has been taken by Mahinda and his front supporters.

    They should contest on a different front without leaning to SLFP and UPFA at the moment as those two fronts are chaired by a dishonest person to his mother country. Let them play around, the public will decide to select the leader who they are looking for.

  2. Lorenzo Says:


    You forgot the BIGGEST ADVANTAGE of contesting seperately. MR party can go hell for leather DISREGARDING MINORITY demands which are the curse of SL.

    Maru Sira is INDEBTED to minorities for making him president. MR has NO SUCH indebtedness. MR has NOTHING to LOSE from minorities. So MR’s party can go promising everything to Singhalese.

    This advantage must be taken.

    MR should promise to SCRAP 13 amendment and SAVE BILLIONS of rupees which can be used for people’s benefit. A cleaner, simpler and transparent government system without TOO MANY crooks in it.

    Maru Sira and Run-nil will be lost for words!!

    This time Tamil votes will go to these parties.

    TNA/TULF/ACTC – 17 seats
    CWC – 8 seats
    Gonason – 2 seats
    UNP/Independent/EPDP – 2 seats

    NOTHING for SLFP, UPFA and MR’s party. So stop wasting time on them. BUT put popular Tamil and Muslim candidates to contest. They CANNOT win seats but can bring in VOTES.

    IF we can get HARDCORE Tamil racists to contest under a Tamil-only extremist party in Colombo, Batticaloa, Vanni, Kandy, etc. that can seriously dent UNP votes.

    We do not care who and who will be there and from which party they will contest as long as Mahinda our great President is there. We will give our valuable vote only to Mahinda and his supporters and we need him to be victorious in all districts and form the next Govt.

    UNP is talking about S.L.F.P. corruption all the time but actual Ali Baba’s are in UNP not anywhere else. They should be investigate the same way they investigate others. They blame others and their cutouts are all over the country. They blame others and give political appointments to their own kith and kin. They blame others and raise the salaries of their kith and kin in high positions in the Govt. They blame others and do the same therefore think wisely before you cast your vote this time. UNP means dark future ahead. Mahinda means a very bright future for everyone to live in peace and harmony.
