I wouldn’t have taken that decision had I been President – Mahinda
Posted on November 5th, 2018

Prime Minster Mahinda Rajapaksa, addressing the ‘Jana Mahimaya’ rally, stated that he once again respects the decision taken by President Maithripala Sirisena.

The ‘Jana Mahimaya’ rally organized to support the newly established government is currently ongoing at the Parliament roundabout.

Rajapaksa says that this decision taken by the President after working with Ranil Wickremesinghe is very important.


President and I worked separately for a long time and many things were said, says Prime Minister.

He said that he is grateful towards President Sirisena for accepting people’s opinion shown through the last election and making this decision.

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa stated that he wouldn’t have taken the decision President took if he had been the President and that he would have continued regardless.

Working with the President is not at all difficult as he and President had worked together in the past, he said.

This decision was made considering the future of the unborn children in Sri Lanka, he mentioned.

However, he will work dedicatedly for the welfare of the country, says PM Rajapaksa.

This government was built by sacrifices of many and he will not let this be broken by others’ tales, further said Rajapaksa.
