GL's Over Enthusiastic Verbiage And The President's Stance.
Periscope - Global Sinhala Village For LankaWeb
It has to be made very clear to the general public of Sri Lanka that
being firmly "resolved to remove several Top Officials"
appointed By Presidential Decree as reported in the media through
the eloquence of cabinet minister Prof.GL.Peiris does not necessarily
implement its reality!
Somewhat reminiscent of a puerile schoolboy's frustration that he has been robbed of his candy perhaps! in venting his anger at the recent decision of the President to exercise her Executive Powers to which Prof. Peiris could hardly precipitate an undoing other than continue in the manner of the proverbial wolf howling at the moon according to many analysts!
Perhaps a degree of etiquette may have been overlooked in the urgency
of the situation and its necessity that the portfolio changes should
have been made through consultation but a prerogative of the President
nevertheless who has had to face embarrassing breaches of etiquette
by the UNF Administration and its Leader on many occassions, with
the recent circumvention of the President's right to represent Sri
Lanka at the United Nations a glaring example of a manipulation by
the Administration and perhaps the events leading upto the removals
of the three cabinet minister poetic justice although coincidental!
and the semantics of written instructions of the Attorney General
a requirement perhaps towards ratification which the Presiden't Office
has probably attended to already, if required by the Constitution
This in all probalities is a time for the Sinhala Nation to rally
round the President and give her optimum support towards her assertions
that the UNF Government is indeed betraying the Nation in compromising
its sovereignity and territorial integrity to the LTTE regardless
of the theatrics of the likes of Prof. Peiris and the Prime Minister
who has apparently been greeted by a 'multitude' of supporters and
well wishers on his return, some whom it is has been learnt by very
reliable sources were transported by the well know modus operandi
of the UNF, " If You Already Guessed It!" in fleets to the
*** Crisis being defused ?
Signs emerged last night that the political showdown between President Chandrika Kumaratunga and the UNF government might be defused through a compromise.
The Daily Mirror learns that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe
who is flying back to Colombo early today was in touch with President
Kumaratunga last morning from London and there was hope of a settlement.
