A REFERANDUM TO CONFIRM THE PRIME MINISTERSHIP
Posted on November 7th, 2018

BY EDWARD THEOPHILUS

There are no legal arguments that the appoint of Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa as the prime minister of the country was a legitimate decision of the president. In fact, Mr Rajapaksa wanted to go to an election, but there is a constitutional restriction for it. Mr Rajapaksa always said that the current government is a caretaker government until a new government will be elected by people at the next general election.

Mr Ranil Wickramasinghe does not accept the legitimacy of the appointment of Mr Rajapakse or he doesn’t like to resolve the problem going to the Supreme Court or face to a general election at this moment.  In short, Mr Wickremasinghe indirectly showing that his status should be confirmed by his supportive diplomatic missions in Colombo but not by the people of Sri Lanka. We have a reasonable question what type of democracy, he is talking about.

As Mr JR Jayewardene assumed, does Mr Wickramasinghe too assumes democracy is as a wish of himself. Does he has no faith on the principles of democracy?  It also seems that Mr Wickremasinghe attempts to interpret the democracy as the way he is thinking. Why the Western democratic countries cannot explain this simple truth to Mr Wickremasinghe, who is attempting mislead the public.

I think at this moment, it is quite good having a public referendum to determine who is the prime minister.

    Before any thing, he should take responsibility for bond scam and resign. His ardent supporter Sajith also should explain why he support a bank robber. I think he is not Mr. RP’s little baby or a naughty boy. He is a grown up man and should know what is right and what is wrong, if he has any hopes of leading a party established by illustrious leaders like DS and Dudley.

    Instead hold a snap presidential election. That will clear all problems.
