Executive Presidential system inappropriate - Malwatte chapter chief incumbent

[TamilNet, Sunday, 15 November 2009, 17:19 GMT]
Kandy Malwatte Chapter Mahanayake Most Ven. Siddhartha Sri Sumangala Thero said that the systems of Executive President, Provincial Council and present election system are not appropriate to Sri Lanka when the Leader of Opposition and United National Party (UNP), Ranil Wickremasinghe went to Malwatte along with other UNP leaders Saturday to get the blessings of the Chief Incumbent, sources in Colombo said.

The manifesto of the United National Front too was handed over to the Chief Incumbent.

The Chief Incumbent said that it was his personal opinion that the systems of Executive President, Provincial Councils as well as the system of election are not appropriate to Sri Lanka and added that people should not be deceived with false promises.

Democracy and human rights in Sri Lanka are deteriorating while the country has fallen back in the spheres of social, economic and education, Ranil Wickremasinghe said to the media.

Establishing peoples’ rule in order to destroy the rule of Rajapakse family is the aim of the United National Front and we will make it our aim for the people of the country to live equally without any racial or religious difference, he further said.
