Sajith Premadasa agrees to be Prime Minister
Sri Lanka’s Leader of Opposition Sajith Premadasa in a letter addressed to Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa had informed him that he is ready to be sworn in as Prime Minister and form an interim government.
In a letter directed to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa today (May 12), the Opposition Leader laid out the following four conditions:
- President Gotabaya Rajapaksa should resign from his position during a stipulated minimum period of time;
- Implementing and enacting the 19th constitutional amendment within a period of two weeks, with the support of all political parties;
- Implementing the provisions in the Constitution within a minimum time period to abolish the executive presidency through the draft 21st constitutional amendment presented to the parliament; and
- Holding a parliamentary election to allow the public to form a permanent government after implementing the constitutional amendments and rebuilding the community life and ensuring the rule of law.
“I am ready to be sworn in as Prime Minister and form an interim government tomorrow if the executive presidency is abolished in a given space of time, to reintroduce the 19th amendment within two weeks and that President resigns within a given time frame,” he said in the letter.
“I am willing to have a dialogue with you on economic reforms and resolving the issues faced by the people,” he informed the President.
C’mon man, (as Biden would say) this is no time for joking! You had ample time to negotiate yourself into that post, but you squandered it right royally, especially after getting whacked by our beloved rathu-sahodarayas a few days back! I suggest you now bite your lip and look forward to the inevitable GE to be that.
Reproting from GoRaGoGama.
The intellectual and leadership deficiencies of the leader of the Opposition are in grand display.
He was given an appropriate response by the Argalaya (saved by his minders !!) when he walked into the former Gotagogama with his comedian backers (Eran Wickremaratne !!).
He ran away in his personal Range Rover (where did the money come from? gold smuggling? wealth accumulated by late RP?) with holes in the windscreen!!
Then he releases a video saying the P Family will never run away for ‘intimidation’.
The dissipation of SJB has begun with Harin and Fonseka; more intelligent and capable people in SJB will desert this Modadasa’s circus outfit in the coming days.
