MR undecided on giving support to SLFP at polls

150819160321-sri-lanka-mahinda-rajapaksa-august-2015-exlarge-169Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says he is still undecided on if he will support the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) at the next Local Government (LG) elections.

Rajapaksa told reporters today that while some in the SLFP want his support there are others who are demanding that he retire from politics.

He said that the public, however, now realize that they need him to solve their problems and he hopes the government will do just that.

Rajapaksa said that as a parliamentarian he has every right to criticize the Government and members of the opposition should also do that.

He said that the SLFP members in the opposition have been given the right to raise their voices against the Government.

On the proposal to abolish the Executive Presidential system, Rajapaksa said that he feels the Executive Presidency will remain.

He said that while some amendments will be made to the Executive Presidential system, overall the President may have most powers. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Since he is not sure where he would be ;behind bars or hanging in Galle face green he could better not decide on what /whom to support.

  2. Because of this hero only we breath now. Otherwise the Prabakaran would have taken over colombo also. Dont worry hero, god will protect you.

  3. “He said that the public, however, now realize that they need him to solve their problems”

    • Well by your definition sir, RW should have retired, Dont forget whatever victories obtained were not land slides.
      Besides what kind of a Srilankan are you calling the former head of state a moron, have you forgotten that this man whatever his faults may be DELIVERED PEACE to not only people like me but fools like you too and to the people who voted against him.

    • Don’t know the reason you had so much hatred. But keep in mind that you live in peace today because of him.

      – Keep your words soft and sweet, you may have to eat them soon.

    • Thanks to this STUPID MORON, ungrateful SOBs like you are enjoying the luxury of living in a safer Sri Lanka. Whether you like it or not, I bet you, he is the most-liked individual in the entire country at the moment, not president Sirisena, nor PM Wicremasinghe.
