“If the only reason to campaign against me is the abolishment of the executive presidency, what they should know is that I’m the ONLY one who can do that, (and will not do it although I have promised to do so)” he said. He expressed these views today while addressing a ceremony held at the Nelum Pokuna Theatre to offer the credentials assigning sacred lands for Buddhist Monks of the Sasanaraksan Bala Mandalaya.
He said two-thirds majority in parliament was necessary for the Constitutional amendments to abolish the executive presidency and only his government was capable of doing it.
Five years ago he promised to the public that he will abolish the Executive Presidency system if he was to be re-elected as president, AND HE WON, but he never did it. Instead he brought the 18th amendment to the constitution so that he can contest for more than two terms as per the countries constitution. He had lied to the public on several other promises and is well known for NOT keeping to his promises.
He promised to India and the Western world if he was allowed to KILL the LTTE in May 2009 he will implement his famous ”13+ amendment” hence the world leaders turned a blind eye when his Army killed more than 40,000 Tamil Civilians in May 2009 alone.
In addition UN negotiated A ‘White Flag’ surrender of more than 1000 LTTE Leaders and their immediate family members, They were taken prisoners by the SL army and Killed by the Sri Lankan Army. Even the Children of these LTTE Leaders were killed in cold blood by the Army. Ltte leader Prabaharens 14 year old son was killed by the army after he was seen surrendered.
The Sri Lankan government has refused to allow UN investigators to find out if ‘War crime’ had taken place in May 2009. The Sri Lankan government has refused to cooperate with UN officers to cover up the killing of more than 40,000 Tamil Civilians by the Sinhala Sri Lankan forcesin May 2009.
Indian Leaders were upset when the President Mahinda refused to implement his ‘famous promised 13+ amendment’, as President now refuses to implement even the 13th amendment of the current constitution of the country which gives some rights to the Tamils because The Ltte in finished. He now plays China against India to keep the Indians silent.
Some Sri Lankan government MP’S in sri Lanka have openly made joke of Indian political Leaders as bunch of Idiots.
