I will leave through the front door when I retire – PM
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe says that he was appointed on a mandate provided by the public.
Addressing an event Galgamuwa, the Prime Minister said that the United People’s Freedom Alliance was unable to change the system to 10 years and they discuss to do so now. Referring to the no-confidence motion, the Prime Minister said. “I was amazed by comments made by MPs Bandula Gunawardena and G.L.Priris. I joined the UNP directly and will leave through the front door when I retire. But the accuses have been changing parties at will and have bought in and out through revolving doors.”
“I was appointed on a madate provided by the public. The public voted for the election of President Maithripala Sirisena, for my appointment as the Prime Minister and for the implementation of our 100 day programme. I am here due to that mandate”, he further said.
Speaking further the Prime Minister said the UPFA was rejected by the public and a new government can only be formed after a general election.

Really? We thought it was the presidential election for electing a president! Is that another joke of yours like shooting Indian fishermen? It is not on the mandate provided by the public you were appointed. IT IS ON THE BRIBE IN THE FORM OF UNP VOTES YOU PROVIDED , YOU WERE APPOINTED AS THE PM. If you had a public mandate your party should have the highest number of seats in the parliament. You came to the PM post by the back door on that and hoodwinking voters about MR’s government corruptions. But 5 months in power, other than stupid, unending media statements, nothing has been shown as evidence, let alone proving in a court of law. GO!!
Ra-nil was NOT appointed by a public mandate, which was for My-3 on Jan 8th. He became pm THROUGH THE BACK GATE., as he was appointed PM by My-3 for services rendered, even though he was of a minority party. This buffoon must be kicked out soon from the back gate also and the traitor My-3 should get his just deserts for betrayal, like Judas.
BRING BACK MAHINDA R.
You came in through the back door after cheating the voters using your lies. You couldn’t prove at least one of your accusations yet.
SL people are still waiting to see the helicopters, Buckingham horse, Lamborghinies etc and now you are talking about going out through front door.
There is no front door for you cheat. Just get out using the same back door that you used to come in !
You cannot say people gave a mandate for you to become PM. The mandate was for the president and yes sirisena said he will make you PM, which is an illegal promise anyway. For the choice of people to be legal, people should have been given the correct choices, i.e.
1. Sirisena to become president with the same existing PM
2. Sirisena to become president with Ranil as the new PM.
Then if people voted for choice no. 2 above , yes then Ranil can say he got a mandate. But that didn’t happen.
Even sirisena’s election must be legally void since he came to power only by telling terrible lies to people. Telling lies to get an advantage is also corruption, and needs to be investigated.
If people were not given a “clear” choice then just because people elected a “president”, president’s illegal promises will not become legal.
Just go and get lost without giving SL people more sins !
You Sir are a gentleman who is cool customer no matter what people said and did you never took revenge I think you and Mr. President make a good team. you are one of Royal Colleges Finest Products. Sri-Lankans will be the same always pulling the leg of people who try to do good for the nation its sad but true that no one has read Mr. presidents election manifesto if so they would never ecus e of being a prime minister who came through the back door. We all look forward to see a good election and a Parliament with educated job qualified ministers so please when giving nominations no more thugs
Glad to see you back in the ‘commentators’ box’ after a prolonged absence.
This man , our imbecile PM has definitely sneaked through the back door. He is no leader of the majority party nor is he the leader of the party with the highest number of seats in the Parliament.. Under the circumstances one would expect of him to be more diplomatic and cautious, instead he acts like a buffoon . Being an anti nationalist he knows he cannot win by popular votes.Hence his call for a National Government.
How can you leave through the front door, no way. You entered through the back door, so please leave through the same way you entered. The election in January was Mahinda vs Sirisena, it was a close decision. The next election is Mahninda vs Ranil, you will be beaten and chased out through the back door.
