No room for dictatorship to emerge in the country – President
President Maithripala Sirisena says on January 8, 2015, the people of this country contributed to the change the administration of the country which was increasingly moving towards a dictatorship.
Those who forgot those experiences will once again appeal to bring the dictatorial regime again in the country but the President emphasized that he will not allow to tarnish the aspirations of the people of this country they bestowed on January 8, 2015.
He made these remarks addressing a ceremony held in Nikaweratiya, on Thursday (21).
President Sirisena said that ending an era of a dictatorship, the freedom and democracy demanded by the people have been ensured not only 100 percent, but 200 percent in the country. He added that even though some attempted to interpret the present regime as a lenient administration, all of them must understand it is a journey with freedom and democracy.
President Maithripala Sirisena further said that although some attacked the government using the given freedom and democracy in the country in a wrongful manner, he will further strengthen the required correct political and development path for the country joining hands with all those who value the democracy including the scholars and intellectuals.
President Sirisena who mentioned that it was possible to bring a lot of victories and to bring back the international community close to the motherland which was distant from freedom and democracy ensured in the country for the past three and a half years said that no one should contribute to reverse the journey towards the future commenced by the country.

As usual sirisena says things out of context and is contradictory in that while he acts like an autocrat denies the non exixtence for a dictatorship. Sirisena is stupid for he is never a phiosopher and what little philosophy he is concious of is what he has picked up with the his association with budhhism even that lnowledge idoes not go beyond what the millions of buddhists go through. This is clearly reflected by his complacency in not co,ing out with the attitude of the corrupt judciary that come under ranils influence. This is obvious the way the DoJ attitude to justice.
Judiciary in recent times has come under a lot of criticism. The judges has no intellectual development they ate elecvaed to that ;osition are yeasr of service in the bar. One need to pause for a moment to relect their behavious in court that continue to be constituted under laws enacted under colonial times. The wig the mace and few other tramels that is associated with court proceedings. Theier personalities are shrouded by what they wear. Like in the parliament they are distinctive what they wear a black jacket and equally black tie. The mould wigs are privelege of the presidential councels.
Going back the obsrrvation made by the bhikku at Gotanhayas pinkama to commemorate his birthday was the lack of leadership in the country. The country is bankrupt because of its policies. Our politicians until recently was kow-towin g to the IMF to bridge the FE defecit. The IMF is no longer benevolent becaus of the budding allaiane with Chinese. the hinese banks in China is not there to serve the purpose of corrupt politicians iin both political parties. They do not offer any credit lines. IMF has closed its doors to SL and before laonger its is going to become a pauper state!
I rather have a dictatorship instead of a puppet government run by a buffalo and a cow.
What a lot of Bullshit. All these jokers did since they came in to power was too blame the previous regime but never did any thing for the country. If My3 was such a patriot why did he wait till Ranil decided to use him as the scape goat in Rani’s quest for power,to realise that MR was so bad.
And what about the promise he made that he will not be his seat for more than five years.
