Country will face chaos if President, PM not from same party – PM
Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday expressed his readiness to carry forward President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s programme for the country with even more vigour. The Prime Minister said he will support a programme that would make the country free from various foreign shackles.
He was of the view that the country will definitely face chaos if the President and the Prime Minister do not come from the same party.
“The Maithri – Ranil administration proved the country that two parties holding the two positions will create problems,” he said. The Prime Minister was speaking at a program organized by the Yuthukama Jathika Sanvidhanaya at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute yesterday to mark the completion of 50 years in politics by Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Yuthukama Jathika Sanvidanaya President Gevindu Kumaratunga and National organizer Anusha Pasquel presented a set of proposals to the Prime Minister for building a stable Government, a strong Legislature and a Constitution that can safeguard the country from internal and external threats.The Prime Minister insisted that the Government requires a two-thirds majority to adopt a Constitution that can make the country victorious. He also said that a two-thirds majority is a prerequisite to iron out problems caused by the 13th and 19th Constitutional Amendments.
“If we fail to garner such a majority at the upcoming election, we will be compelled to keep a saloon door open as in the past to obtain the support of unnecessary persons,” he said. He added that SJB leader Sajith Premadasa is shredding the UNP to tatters.

Yesterday your son said , in a meeting, that you can’t walk ( and standing !) and you have asked him to attend the meeting. If you are so weak, why you are contesting ?
Give chances to others !
He is contesting because the P and PM should not only be from the same party but be from the same family as well !
Please get me in folks. I am not like other presidents who leave the office in dignity and disappear from the political seen.. I even don’t care to come as a member of the parliament. I know it is just like a manager of a bank coming to work as a clerk. Even my self respect is gone to dogs I am doing this for the sake of this country.
Even it is much better if they are siblings and also come from the same family. In Sri Lanka politics are sexually transmitted from generation after generations. No place to new comers or young generations.
