the UNP and the JVP is $%^#$ bricks a at the prospects of facing a presidential election and by and by Sirirsena will join the fold if he can muster support from his own party a party that has come to realise what sirirsena for what he is a dumb ass.
One problem is what is the office of the presidential to be replaced with. When JR and his cronies drafted the amendment to accomodate the presidency JR had some idea of adopting the little understood US system. US system had not two but three in the government congress, the senate and the executive branch. besides there was a mechanism through which the presidency could be replaced before the end of his constitutional term.
What we edowed from the British system of a bicameral system was good the only failing was that we didnot have a royalty to be backed by the arisyocrat. The senate appaoint,emts were mdae by the parliament and they were few in number and not representative. What we ought to have senate constituted by elected members represented by the districts and none of the senators to enter trhough the back door,
Further the constitution ought to abolish people nomenated to the parlaia ment. All parliamentarians should be elected.
Finally elected member s should be prohibhited from crossing over and if they are not happy they should dorfiet their seat in parliament and seek reelection.
JVP inspite of parties high high moral values that cannot be sustained long enough for they have forsaken the little understood marxixt leninist ideolgy that could not be sustained. As a socialist democracy it cannot survive under the exixsting system that is why it leans heavily on the UNP which leans heavily on the tamil and muslims for its survival
The next Executive President of Sri Lanka, Hon K Jayasuriya, will ensure a new Constitution with Parliament being supreme.
Karu Jayasuriya = Maithripala Sirisena…. both are same ,
both are the dummy of Ranil Wik.
country will not stable…We dont want a anoth Ruukada.. need a strong leader….
