President says 2020 will see an SLFP-led Government

President Maithripala Sirisena says a Government led by the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) will be formed in 2020.

He said that the SLFP must form a political movement free of corruption, malpractices and unethical political practices.

The President said this while addressing the Sri Lanka Freedom Party Convention held to mark the 68th Anniversary of the Party at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium in Colombo today.

He pointed out that the entire political system has become corrupt, dishonest and immoral.

The President also accused Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe of preventing the Provincial Council elections from being held on time.

“Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is the key respondent for preventing the Provincial Council polls from being held,” he said and pointed out that the Prime Minister failed to present the Review Committee Report for the reactivation of the PCS after the Bill was defeated in Parliament.

The President also pointed out that in accordance with the Constitutional Amendment the next President will be powerless.

He said the Defence Ministry will also be with the Prime Minister so the SLFP must not be thinking of the next Presidential Election but must pay more attention to elect the next Prime Minister.
