Namal says confirmed Gota not a US citizen

Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) member, Namal Rajapaksa says it has now been confirmed that SLPP Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa is not a US citizen.

Namal Rajapaksa published the Loss of Certificate document confirming that Gotabaya Rajapaksa is not a US citizen anymore.

He said that with the citizenship issue resolved the United National Party can now move on to another mudslinging campaign.

Meanwhile, Rajapaksa’s lawyers today told reporters that documents confirming  Rajapaksa was no more a US citizen had been handed over to the Elections Commission.

President’s Counsel Ali Sabry said that the US Embassy in Colombo had issued a document confirming that Rajapaksa was now not a US citizen.


  1. The 19th amendment was done to prevent wise Sri Lankans involving in leadership and decision making process, so the fools can enjoy their positions, in order to enjoy the benefits and perks. I have seen Sri Lankans who never lived or studied in others parts of the world became forein puppets far more than Sri Lankans who have foreign citizenship. If Gota and Basil never lived in the United States they would have stopped the war. Because of their experience living in the West made them to understand the West more than Ranil. Therefore, judging Sri Lankans’ commitment base on citizenship status is utter nonsense.
