I have given Premiership to Ranil Wickremesinghe while honouring Parliamentary traditions and democracy,” President Maithripala Sirisena has stated.

He stated this addressing the members of United National Front (UPF) following the swearing-in ceremony of Ranil Wickremesinghe as the Prime Minister this morning (16).

The President stated that his statement on refusing to give premiership to Wickremesinghe even if all 225 in Parliament sign and request him to do so is his personal political opinion and persists to date.

However, he has decided to invite Ranil Wickremesinghe to be appointed the Prime Minister as a leader who honours the Parliament traditions and democracy, President Sirisena further stated.

Reminding that, in accordance with the Constitution, the Parliament or the judiciary do not have the authority to appoint the Premier, President Sirisena stated that he took this decision as the majority of 117 votes in the Parliament has sought Ranil Wickremesinghe to be appointed as the Prime Minister.

    What an ABYSMAL COP OUT! A TOTAL & ABJECT SURRENDER of the Nation to a PM who Sirisena DECLARED as UNWORTHY & CANNOT BE TRUSTED with the KEYS to Sri Lanka’s Treasury! and its SAFETY

    As I had said before, Sirisena should have DECLARED AN EMERGENCY, IMPOSED MARTIAL LAW, SHUT DOWN the PARLIAMENT under ARMED SERVICES PROTECTION, EJECTED Ranil Baba and his 40-Thieves from TEMPLE TREES, and SET AN EARLY DATE for a GENERAL ELECTION!

    His FOREMOST DUTY was to PROTECT the Nation from a RAPACIOUS SET OF CROOKS & TRAITORS and to EMPOWER the Voting Public with the OPPORTUNITY to DEMOCRATICALLY DECIDE on who should LEAD them in the FUTURE!

    THIS Spineless MAN FAILED to DO THAT!

    NOW hold your breath FOLKS, for PHASE 3 of the CENTRAL BANK SCAM and a 20th Amendment to be PASSED by HOOK or BY CROOK to PACIFY the TNA!

    Ranil Baba of 40-Thieves INFAMY promises to “Restart Development”!

    Pray tell us: With what money?

    OBVIOUSLY, MORE LOANS BORROWED from Western Banks NO DOUBT, which will soon END UP in the UNP’s OWN COFFERS to FUND & PREPARE SAFE HAVENS ABROAD for the 40-Thieves in ANTICIPATION of their RE-OUSTING in the NEAR FUTURE, and will leave Sri Lanka STUCK NECK DEEP in DEBT!

    For the CROOKED leaders of the UNP, it is ESSENTIAL to have SAFE HAVEN in the Foreign Countries they SERVED in the Yamapalana YEARS; their COLLECTIVE NECKS DEPEND on it when the TIDE TURNS AGAINST THEM …. AS IT INEVITABLY WILL … in the NEAR FUTURE.

    So, OODLES of MONEY have to be STOLEN from so-called DEVELOPMENT FUNDS they plan to BORROW!

    It is RUMORED that the former Finance Minister of “Mama Danney Naha” fame, who when questioned by the FCID DISAVOWED knowledge of his own wife and daughters, and how he came to be living in a luxury apartment GIFTED by the CENTRAL BANK BOND SCAMMERs, is AGAIN going to be appointed FINANCE MINISTER in charge of the National TREASURY! God HELP Sri Lanka, there is NO END to this OUTRIGHT THEFT permitted by the SHORT TERM MEMORY of the PUBLIC!

    Think it will not happen?

    THINK AGAIN & CONSIDER THIS:

    Every time Ranil Baba has been APPOINTED PM, MASSIVE SCAMS have been PERPETRATED. Rs 11 Billion within 3 months of his FIRST APPOINTMENT in Jan 2015; Rs 30 Billion within 3 months of his SECOND APPOINTMENT as PM in Aug. 2015, and if HISTORY REPEATS, how many Billions of Rs will be stolen after his THIRD APPOINTMENT as PM in Dec, 2018!

    In the Peoples Republic of China, Top Executives are EXECUTED for MASSIVE THEFTS such as these.

    How will Sri Lanka HOLD THESE CROOKS ACCOUNTABLE?? By allowing them to FLEE the country into SAFE RETIREMENTS ABROAD??
