Sajith notes lack of trust among politicians

Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa says there is a lack of trust amongst politicians in Sri Lanka.

Premadasa tweeted saying the real system issue is that there is no trust amongst politicians.

“There is no trust amongst politicians. That’s the real system issue. It will take a lean team of cabinet members who can work well together and are committed to economic recovery of the country to deliver results. The team cannot be a result of political negotiations,” he tweeted.

Premadasa tweeted in response to the World Bank saying until an adequate macroeconomic policy framework is in place, the World Bank does not plan to offer new financing to Sri Lanka.

The World Bank said the macroeconomic policy framework requires deep structural reforms that focus on economic stabilization, and also on addressing the root structural causes that created this crisis to ensure that Sri Lanka’s future recovery and development is resilient and inclusive.

The World Bank Group had also said it is deeply concerned about the dire economic situation and its impact on the people of Sri Lanka. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. “ SJB says all its MPs with Sajith” daily mirror

    Having to say this shows SJB is crumbling under Sajiths inability to lead…

  2. If we try to read between the lines, we get one clear message. i.e. NOBODY – not even your own party members in Parliament trust YOU, and that is the reason, why they are bolting in different directions. Look at the mirror of your own image. Why is this? You should know, and definitely you know it.

  3. Generally, thieves do not trust each other but make sure that they continue steal more than others :—))

    What a filthy liar! His political block in made up and held together based on negotiations aka deals as he loves to call it…

    • They are all filthy liars. When the poster boy for good governance ( Wimal
      Weerawansa ) is facing Rs 75 million in corruption charges; nothing more needs to be said about the character of Sri Lankan politics.

      Perhaps now, the International community will have the opportunity to take up the cudgels for the people, and use their leverage with the required loans to enforce fiscal discipline and transparency.
