The leader of the Opposition Mahinda Rajapaksa says that what the Chairman of the Elections Commission should do now is not resign from his post, but hold the Provincial Council Elections under the previous election system.

He mentioned this to the media, attending a function held to open a private restaurant in the Negombo area, yesterday (29).

According to him, Mahinda Deshapriya, the Elections Commission Chairman, declaring that he would resign from the post is useless; instead, what he should be doing is holding the election as the Elections Commission chairman.

The elections can definitely be held under the old election method and if anyone objects to this, the matter can be taken up to the courts, Rajapaksa further said.

    He is playing to the gallery unfortunately. He is the only National Leader who can save Mother Lanka. But, can we trust him now??

    MR talking about the importance of Buddhism going into Temple by Temple for his propaganda and held a wedding ceremony of his son in the Hindu tradition too. Was it necessary? Poruwe ceremony and the Church wedding was not sufficient according to their family religions?? Is he showing that the country should be multi-cultural?

    He is playing to the Indian minds and will go to Thirupathy again soon. Similarly, MR will re-appoint all the rogue Muslim ministers under his future government too.

    Hakkim and Badiuddeen will continue with their destroying Lanka projects.

    Can we call him a National Leader then??
