For political opponents,  if MR is no good, then GR is also no good.  GR made MR great when in power.  Now MR has made GR great. 

If the country rejects MR, it will also reject GR.  If the country rejects GR at the presidential election, then it will also reject MR at the next General Election.

It is what the Nation thinks of you, yourself alone.  The Nation has a specific feeling about MR, GR, BR, RW, MS, SP, etc. That is Not Negotiable.

In Singapore, Late Mr. Hon. Lee Kwan Yew groomed his son to Premiership.  Now Mr. LKW is no more.  Lee’s son ( Prime Minister) is being challenged by his own brother ( qualified Doctor) and has formed a new opposition political party known as Singapore Progressive Party. Tan Cheng Bock at the age of 79  is leading the new party against PAP (formed by his father LKW).  Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is 67 years of age.

In Sri Lanka, the Bandaranaike family disintegrated after parent’s death. They sold Nittambuwa properties to their servant and the servant Somawathi sold small lots to buyers through Anagi Property Sales. Loyal Somawathie for 34 years, siphoned funds off back to Chandrika and Suneththra for a kick-back.  Anura Bandaranaike was not a financial beneficiary of the deals  Singapore brothers are also fighting politically, but family property settlement is at the core of the issue.

Sajith Premadasa has no children, so there will be no fighting amongst brothers and sisters for his massive wealth.   Ranil (relatively poor) also has no children, so he is also on the same platform as Sajith. Mangala Samaraweera does not believe that marriage is between a man and a woman.  So he is not married to a woman.

Insinuations, innuendo is common in politics.  Your unknown enemy is very near you.  Your tomorrow’s enemy is today’s very close family relative or friend.  Your known enemies respect you.  But your unknown Enemy will not respect you.

Greed will overtake them.

Thankfully, the Rajapakse family is still together.  They respect their parents.  Still, there are pockets of opponents who would like to create a non-existing conflict even before the results of any Election.
