Elect Gotabaya based on his service as Defence Secretary – Mahinda Rajapaksa
People should decide whether or not to elect Gotabaya Rajapaksa as President taking into account the service he rendered in his capacity as the former Defence Secretary, opposition leader Mahinda Rajapaksa said yesterday.
He said this while addressing a convention on tea and rubber smallholders and cultivators of minor export crops at the Sri Lanka Exhibition and Convention Centre (SLECC), held under the patronage of SLPP presidential hopeful Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
“Gotabaya Rajapaksa rendered yeoman service during his tenure as Defence Secretary. People can expect the same efficiency and effectiveness if he assumes the presidency,” he said.
Referring to President Maithripala Sirisena’s statement that the premier would override the powers of Executive President in the next regime, he said power hinged on one’s capability and that the incumbent government had no vision in policymaking.

Ahimsa Wikrematunge appears to be more powerful that all of Yahapalana put together.
She is after this Candidate’s Ba”’ in a US court where he has requested permission to delay the multi-billion dollar case against hi because he is busy wit the Campaign and that if he is elected president of the Republic of Sri Lanka, he will be immune from prosecution.
She’s got this guy by the ba”’ mates, not only are the R Family going to lose the elections, they gonna lose their USD18b wealth as reported by Forbes Magazine.
Ahimsa does not ‘appear’ to be ‘more powerful’;
Ahimsa is beyond that; she is defininitely more powerful than all the Sinhala Buddhist Clowns and Sinhala Buddhist Jokers and Sinhala Buddhist Cheaters in Government and Opposition (PM, Prezzy, JO Leader, Opposition Leader, Cabinet Ministers, Attorney General), all put together.
