They speak of the executive presidency today, but they were in this position for eleven years and never attempted to change it. I know they tried to win the UNP over to make it stronger. I know they spoke of making Karu Jayasuriya Prime Minister. They were waiting for Rukman Senanayake to come over, to give him the premiership. Ratnasiri Wickremanayake was asked to resign. They said to wait and see that Karu Jayasuriya was on his way to accept this. That was their hope then. Even we waited and looked on back then. But we have identified the need to change the entire constitution. It cannot be tampered with, one by one. The consequences need to be considered, for example with the 13th Amendment. This is mudslinging politics. It is easy to talk.

I heard them say yesterday that they would close the airport. They would close the airport and not let me flee. By the gods, we have never fled and neither will we flee. He was a Minister for several years. He had three portfolios. And then he had to wait for the time when he would be prime minister. When it was delayed, he went over to the other side to try and become President. The crow and the kingfisher became friends. The kingfisher catches the fish and gives it to his friend, the crow. After some time the crow thought, if the kingfisher can do it, why can’t I? And he jumped, got caught and died. He was trapped. There is a similarity between him and the crow…
