Speaking at an election rally in Girandurukotte, Weerawansa claimed that western diplomats will not want even opposition UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe to win more than 50 percent of the votes at the next Presidential elections.
He says the western diplomats in Sri Lanka are working at ensuring Wickremesinghe, JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake and maybe even the Venerable Maduluwawe Sobhitha thero contest against President Mahinda Rajapaksa to split the Sinhalese vote.
Weerawansa says by breaking the Sinhalese votes the western powers will eventually ensure neither candidate wins more than 50 percent of the votes at the Presidential elections.
The Minister is of the view if a President comes to power with no absolute majority, western countries will use Facebook to push for an uprising among the public and destabilise the country.
He is also of the opinion that some opposition political parties are supporting the diplomats in this attempt. (Colombo Gazette)
Interesting comment :
Here we go again; the mouthpiece of the Rajapaksas.
One day the Rajapaksas call the defence as heroes, next day they cut the pension and salaries of the defence.
The Rajapaksas say one thing, but in reality they do totally opposite.
The Rajapaksas and their mouthpiece always talk about the Western powers’ conspiracy, but they love the US citizenship, and fly to the US for medical treatments.
The Rajapaksas have killed thousands of innocent people; and still they have been ruling the North under the military rule. Not all Tamils are fools.
The Rajapaksas beaten Prabhakaran; it does not mean they are going to beat 82 million Tamils all around the world.
We want the 13th amendment; plus the immigration and citizenship powers also under the Northern and Eastern provinces as Quebec controls its own immigration and citizenship in Canada.
The Rajapaksas having dual citizenship; but refusing dual citizenship to Tamils.
The Sri Lanka will face sanctions next year; if they don’t allow the UN war crime investigation team in Sri Lanka; and allow the people to testify the truth.
They also must implement the 13th amendment with the police, land and immigration powers. Don’t play with fire, if you do; you will get burned.
