Colombo, June 5 (newsin.asia): Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena has told Mano Ganeshan, cabinet minister for Official Languages, that he will be ready to support the United National Party (UNP) led United National Front (UNF) in the coming Presidential election if it fields Sajith Premadasa as its candidate.

The President had earlier told UNF ministers that he will not contest the Presidential election which, he said, would be held on December 7, this year.

He also made it clear that he will not support any candidate put up by former President and Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa.

By saying so, Sirisena hinted that the talks between his Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and Rajapaksa’s Sri Lankan Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) for an electoral alliance were going nowhere.

The SLFP had proposed that Sirisena be the Presidential candidate and Rajapaksa be the Prime Minister. But the SLPP has unofficially decided that Gotabaya Rajapaksa, the former Defense Secretary and Mahinda Rajapaksa’s brother, is to the candidate.

It is perhaps this which made Sirisena tell the UNF ministers that he will support the UNP-UNF if it adopts the right policies”, by which he meant a nationalist, Sinhala-Buddhist and anti-West policy.

Later, he told minister Mano Ganeshan that if Sajith Premadasa, (son of the pro-poor and nationalist former President Ranasinghe Premadasa) is put up as the UNP-UNF candidate, he will offer his support.

Sirisena believes that the policies of the UNP-UNF will be nationalist and pro-poor under the stewardship of Sajith Premadasa.

Sajith is portrayed as a rural-based, pro-poor and nationalist man because of his work in the rural areas in Hambantota District, though, in actuality, he is a Colombo-based, foreign-educated and urbane person.

    Many thanks to President Sirisena. He will degrade and reduce any support that Sajith Premadasa has for his presidential bid! Welcome to the shit pond!

  2. Ananda-USA Says:

    If Sirisena has actually proposed this, then he has DESCENDED to a NEW LOW in his betrayal of the SLFP and the Patriotic Forces of Sri Lanka!

    As if his ORIGINAL BETRAYAL in 2014-2015 is not enough, if this is TRUE, he is AGAIN MOVING to SPLIT the Sinhala Buddhist vote. His attitude seems to be “If I cannot remain President, none of my traditional Party leaders will be ALLOWED to SUCCEED!”.

    This time however, HE WILL FAIL in his attempt, for the Sinhala People, Buddhist and Christian ALIKE are now SINGLE MINDED in their DETERMINATION to RESTORE a DESHAPREMI GOVT to our Motherland.

    If Gothabhaya Rajapaksa becomes the JO/UPFA/SLFP (majority) Candidate, he will WIN BY A LANDSLIDE!

    The Patriotic People of our country have HAD ENOUGH of these BUNGLING TRAITORS of the UNP/TNA/SLMC/Yamapalanaya and will SWEEP THEM OUT OF OFFICE never to return to power within the next TWO DECADES!

    Sirisena and Mano went to the inauguration or Emperor Modi. Jai Hind.

    Sira knows very well that Sajith or any other young person will never get a chance in UNP or as common candidate to contest next Presidential election. Therefore he can tell anything. If Sirisena can tell when his so call Bond commission report publish or file action before next president election will be much appreciated. Unpredictable Sira may publish or if some other person could publish the Bond Commission finding that will be the trump card for both President & general elections.

    You have to read between the (Indian) lines. India does not want Sajith but wants someone else. Not sure if readers can identify that. All serious presidential candidates will lived most of the past 30 years either in Colombo or USA.

    Sajith has no chance of winning against Gotabaya. However, Sajith can easily defeat Basil, Chamal or Namal.

    All depends on the outcome of court cases against Gotabaya.

    If Sajith wins, Namal will win in 2024 to Mahinda’s happiness. If Gotabaya wins, Namal has no chance in 2024 or later.

    @Dilrook
    “Not sure if readers can identify that.”
    I have been saying this for long time now. Unfortunately some times my comments are banned because of big names.
    Not only that, I am now saying India has negotiated with Sirisena for a serious deal and very likely for a very serious crime which already occurred. I was commenting on Indian media even. Indian didn’t like it.

    This is the last last last last last chance for the Sinhalese to unite and save Sinhalese race, Sri Lanka and
    Buddhism.

    After getting the job, with numerous lies from the traitor UNPatriotic_rats party aka United National Ponnyinparty,
    puppet the vairapala sorry sena hung on to the job while traitor chief die hard catholic token Buddhist bay gal
    karaya mega thief mega thakkadiya walking crime bomb (against Sinhalese Buddhists, Sri Lanka and Buddhism
    only) Batalande wa(n)dakaya Pol Pot r@ni_leech wickrama Sinhala killer and its treacherous henchmen
    doing immense damage. This is the time to wipe these traitor UNPatriotic_rats from the political map of Sri
    Lanka for good! Simple man who will leave all these things one day with just amudaya, according to vairapala sorrysena’s daughter with book sales of 1) wants to drive the final nail into the coffin of Sinhalese race, Buddhism and Sri Lanka before it disappear. Patriotic Sinhallese will forgive being uneducated but they will never forgive a traitor who became a cat’s paw to do so much damage to destroy Mother Lanka, Sinhalese race and Buddhism.
    You are going to be cursed for generations that is certain.

    Sinhalese should unite, field only ONE candidate and
    *wipe out anti Sinhalese, anti Buddhist, anti Sri Lanka, minority worshiping, Mother Lanka dismembering
    traitor UNPatriotic_rats for good who have been destroying Mother Lanka, Sinhalese race and Buddhism
    since SWRD broke away from the traitors for their votes to get into power
    *since no mussie came forward to condemn mussie atrocities, ban the fastest breeding religion aka religion of
    violence. Spain banned it in 1478 and saved their country. Angola recently banned it. Sri Lanka has the only true
    religion in the world and after just learning Buddhism’s Five Precepts, mussies will realise what a religion
    should be and will convert.
    *hang Batalande wa(n)dakaya in public for who is responsible for all the ills Sri Lanka facing today
    * form a government without the help of fastest breeding religion aka religion of violence mussies
    *abolish 13, 13A to get rid of mini thieves dens you have every 50 miles which traitor tamils and mussies
    use to form tamil drealam and mussiesthan (traitor alugosuwa thambi mudiyanselage jr@’s treachery legacy)
    * get rid of the traitor alugosuwa thambi mudiyanselage jr@’s constitution which has done so much damage to
    Sinhalese race, Buddhism and Sri Lanka
    * limit 2 children to a family to stop mussie baby machines
    *abolish race based parties which the mussies/tamils use to wag the government of the day since UNPatriotic_rats
    divide the Sinhalese and make minorities king makers
    *abolish race based schools which mussies/tamils use to hide real numbers
    *stop mussie baby productions at the early age of 12
    *implement 1 law to all the citizens and anyone who can’t obey the law of the land, ask them to go their beloved lands where they came from
    *avoid mussies in the government at any cost
    *make Sri Lanka 100%% solar/hydro powered
    *change the university/education system to train more skilled people and stop sending Sinhalese women to
    the middle east
    *regain the world’s most popular destination for tourists which will provide more than enough revenue to run a
    small country like ours.

    To do list is too long. We need someone like GR who is tried and tested. Now we can see traitors Batalande wa(n)dakaya and its henchmen again trying to get a puppet at the helm to be back seat driver. Sinhalaya famous
    for being modayas with a short memory, who is going to bet against them they aren’t going to scupper the boat
    at this last last last opportunity!
