If Sajith not made UNP Prez candidate Harin vows to quit politics
While noting that the majority of the United National Party expects its Deputy Leader, Minister Sajith Premadasa to be named as the Party’s Presidential candidate, Minister Harin Fernando vowed to quit politics if the Party decides otherwise.
Minister Fernando was responding to questions posed by journalists during a media briefing held at his Ministry last (23) afternoon.
Replying to a query regarding an incident between Minister Ravi Karunanayake and Premadasa the other day during a Party meeting, Fernando said: “There was no issue. It was just that Karunanayake had a query, which was well answered by our future candidate and even the Party Leader and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe advised that we should move forward as a Party without further internal problems. Premadasa, our future candidate has the majority within the Party.”
“Yes he is our candidate,“ answered Fernando when asked about whether Premadasa is their final Presidential candidate and further added if Premadasa was not to be the eventual candidate “We will be looking at something else and will stay at home”.

You quitting politics is an excellent idea.
You have messed up IT in Sri Lanka.
You promised Google Baloon; we cannot see anything.
You failed to share critical information passed on by your dad regarding Easter Sunday attacks to prevent the deaths of over 250 persons.
So Harin, you are a miserable failure and it is best you disappear with your mate, Son of Premadasa, into oblivion.
Excellent analysis David B,
Harin Fernando has been a big disappointment.
He was handling the Telecom/IT Portfolio where the brother of the King was the boss selling bandwidth to Sirasa TV for a couple of LKR’s.
Harin had no say in the running of his portfolio.
He was advised by a SL Conman located in Silicon Valley about the false potential of Google Baloons. Harin fell for it and ended up with egg on his face.He was given the Sports portfolio; SL Team returned from the World Cup with an empty hand.
His dad advised him against going to Church on Easter Sunday. Harin obeyed but failed to realise that he was not only an MP but a Cabinet Minister. He failed to alert security, intelligence and political leadership on the threat. This lapse cased death of 250 innocent lives.
Now he is harping on Premadasa’s elevation to President. Does he know that the next President will largely be ceremonial under the 19A? This guy has no brain.
Please Harin, go away and go away for good. You disappoint us, the youth of this country.
Those who are promoting Sajith P are falling nto a trap set up by Sirasa TV operators.
Sirasa TV openly manipulated the current King; now that the current King has no future in leadership, Sirasa TV is looking for another weakling to enable continuation of their manipulation.
In Sri Lanka, Politics done by the people who have either achieved high in criminal activities, village thugs, corrupt businessmen, looters, uneducated so on. And the best thing is that the educated people are casting their votes for those buggers. Then expect miracles.
We have seen many have told that they will step down during different incidents and none have done that. So this wont happen as well. Karu will be the candidate for sure. Or a different figure from out of the moon. That’s what done by UNP all the while.
In next election people in SL should vote for one and allow that person not to beg for collations.
you should give up politics for not only backing Premadasa who has no idea of industrializing our country his main activity helping our monks not we the people a life of plenty which will bring our country to the lowest level Premadasa worship maitry and as such he is doom to failure for maitri for the last 4 years by his avoidace of BOT coal fuel electricity has base load and economical hydro with large reservoirs as peaking has cause a loss of over 4 trillion Rs. the details I have given to the anti corruption committee any one interested should contact the anti corruption committee and obtain a copy. he should also be ask to explain how he sign a cricket without Ajantha Mendis the mystery spinner when from Cri info AM exploits have being given to him from 2014 onwards may be lazy to read them
The Sports Ministry belonging to Hon Harin Fernando is in a mess.
The Minister made 2 trips to UK for the World Cup at taxpayer expense.
SL Cricket is in such a mess that star players are retiring from the game, prematurely.
Now Hon Harin is promoting a dumb head as Presidential Candidate.
Guess this guy should give up politics because he has proven to be a disaster.
