November 17 (newsin.asia) – Ministers from Sri Lanka’s ruling United National Front (UNF) government began resigning from their portfolios on Sunday after the ruling presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa lost the presidential elections.

Minister of Sports, Telecommunications and Foreign Employment, Harin Fernando, was one of the first Ministers to hand in his resignation saying he had decided to step down respecting the people’s mandate. Fernando said he was also resigning from his positions in the United National Party (UNP) which is the largest party in the UNF alliance.

Minister of Digital Infrastructure and Information Technology, Ajith Perera in a statement said he too had handed in his resignation respecting the mandate of the Sri Lanka people.

Several more Ministers are rumored to have sent in their resignation letters after Sajith’s defeat and it is likely that Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe will also hand in his resignation letter later today.

President-elect Gotabaya Rajapaksa will take his oath as the new president of Sri Lanka on Monday morning in Anuradhapura, his party the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) said in a statement.

Thereafter Rajapaksa is expected to form a caretaker government.

    This election clearly showed treacherous anti Sinhalese, anti Buddhist, anti Sri Lanka, Mother Lanka dismembering, minority worshiping GooandPee aka UNPatriotic_rats are with the extremists and separatists. We are sad to see
    still a lot Sinhala dhrohiyas support these murderous (Sinhalese Buddhists only), lying, thieving @s. A packet of rice/a shot of arrack/a job/house etc. etc. At least open your eyes now and help save Mother Lanka, Sinhalese
    race and Buddhism (the only true religion in the world, no mythical gods,passes all the science tests with flying colours. Year is 2019, gods died 1856 with Darwin’s Theory of Evolution!).

    GR should enact laws to stop mussie baby farms. This election showed how mussies have multiplied like xxxx.
    Stop the mass breeding to halt Mother Lanka becoming another iran, afganisthan, pakesthan, maldives,
    bangladesh, malaysia and indonesia which were Buddhist before the mussie baby machines got there. Baby
    machine operators mussies are all in businesses and the baby machines are at home churning ou1 1 vote
    every year unlike Sinhalese couples who do jobs and struggle to bring upone child. Automatic birth control for the
    Sinhalese and baby farms for mussies (to tamils as well to some extent of course to get the country).

    Punish all traitor yama pallans who did so much damage to the Sinhalese race, Buddhism and Mother Lanka.
    We couldn’t even cremate a monk thanks to GooandPee. Worst culprits should be hung to teach a lesson to future
    traitors.
    No more than 2 children to a family
    No FREE education after 2 children
    University entrance proportionately to all (we train murderers free of charge to sterile Sinhalese Mothers. Tamils
    and mussie doctors have been doing this for decades. Only now came to light with that mussie @. Still no
    punishment from the GooandPee obviously.
    No FREE hospitals after 2 children
    One law for all
    No burka (high fashion in hell. Who says ghosts don’t exist?)
    Change traitor alugosuwa (to Sinhalese Buddhists only) thambi mudianselage [email protected] constitution which did so much
    damage
    No mussie ministers in government (mussies will land powerful ministries promote mussie baby farms,
    deforestation to settle down new mussie multiplication)
    Settle Sinhalese in the north and the east. Claim our country back from these traitor low lives. We didn’t bring any
    of them at all. If you can’t be Sri Lankan, get lost!

    Congratulations to GR. All patriotic Sri Lankans have faith on you since you have shown what you are capable of.
    You transformed chaotic, dirty Colombo to be one of the best cities in Asia. Then we saw for the first time
    motorways for real (including traitor sama harak). Still traitors never gave any credit for it. But that is Sinhalese!
    Ungrateful with a short memory. Fortunately not all the Sinhalese, not all tamils and mussies and Mother Lanka was
    saved from GooandPee from total destruction!

    Hang traitor chief die hard catholic token Buddhist bay gal karaya mega thief mega thakkadiya Batalande
    wa(n)dakaya Pol Pot [email protected]_leech wickrama Sinhala killer who is the architect all this ills Sri Lanka, Sri
    Lankans and Buddhism going through. Close the airport to stop traitor thieves fleeing the country to enjoy the
    mega loots those @s looted from Mother Lanka!

    Finally it happened. We were waiting for this day since January 2015.

    Now we can sit back and relax. Gota will deliver the goods and bring up this destroyed country back again and will take it to new heights.

    May triple Gem bless you Gota and your team and Mother Lanka!!!

    BUDDHU SARANAI, THRIVIDA RATNAYA PIHITAI, DEAR GOTA FOR YOUR FUTURE ENDEAVOURS, TO MAKE SRILANKA A BEAUTIFUL PLACE AND A PEACEFUL PLACE TO LIVE IN. PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN ON TROUBLE CREATORS. Susantha

    Kudos to Sri Lankan voters (mainly Sinhala-Buddhists..). They have finally spoken by electing a patriotic brave leader who will not sell the country at any price.

    The previous regime -Yahapalanaya, under Ranil did everything possible to undermine Sinhala-Buddhists, in favour of minorities and their western friends, including Tamil Diaspora.

    Now that Sri Lanka has been saved from further destruction by the previous regime, it’s time to look at the past five years and learn the lessons, and correct the mistakes they did – like trying to sell the country to US. The new president has the work cut out for, and will be challenging as all the anti-SL forces in and out of the country will do everything possible to tarnish the leadership and the country itself.

    I think and confident that Gota is quite capable of handling any challenges. The only thing that worries me is that he won’t give into the family cronyism, and corruptions that became pretty obvious under his brother Mahinda’s time, which eventually led to his down fall.

    Hope Gota already realises that?
