TIDE IS TURNING AGAINST BOTH PRESIDENT AND THE  PRIME MINISTER!
Posted on March 18th, 2018

The President Maithreepala Sirisena is personally indebted to the Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe for elevating him to the rank of the President of the country.  Has he paid back his debt sufficiently?

The UNP administrative machine is no more the power base of RW.  The grass root UNP support is no more the power base of RW.    He is also not powerless.  He derives his power from two primary sources, firstly from the Tamil dominated anti-Sinhala Western-Indian power block and secondly from the high Office of the land, the Office of the President.  The support of the President  for the PM is ROCK SOLID. 

We had some respect for RW in the past as Mr Clean, a man without corruption.  He is now not any more Mr Clean.  In contrast, the general public never had any favourable impressions of Mr Maithreepala Sirisena.  In the process of trying to protect the Prime Minister, the President has gone enormous distance, in the process of trying to ensure UNP victory at the most recent elections, the President had tarnished his image as a Leader.

Now both the President and PM are powerless.  They cannot rule the country by Guns. The Sri Lankan Armed Forces have been marginalised  and their dedicated families have been ill-treated by  both the President and the Prime Minister.  It is unusual for the men and women of Armed Forces to forgive and forget the corrupt leaders, as they themselves have realized that the general public is no longer support the Executive President and the Executive Prime Minister of the land. 

The under current situation is extremely volatile, shaky, transient and capricious.  It is not about just two persons.  It is about  21 million Sri Lankans!

    Given the recent political and ethnic turmoil and the Bond Scam, the time has come to pass legislation that –
    All politicians and those responsible for managing the Finances of the country (including members of their immediate family) are compelled to declare ALL THEIR ASSETS.
