Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, General Secretary of the Jathika Hela Urumaya , Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka commented on the statement made by the President on Tuesday.
He went on to state that the president is the skipper of a civilised political culture that ‘we developed by putting our lives on the line against dirty politics.’ He said:
He is our President and we believe that this situation will not change.
He added that the president held two positions because on the 8th of January he became the President of the all the people; and in addition, he was is the Chairman of both the SLFP and the UPFA. And yesterday it was pointed out that he gives priority to the presidency and the people’s mandate that he received on the 8th of Janaury more than the responsibilities of the party. He stated ‘We are thankful for that.’
He also noted that this was a golden opportunity for the Sri Lanka Freedom Party since they had the opportunity on the 8th of January to commence a new journey with a new leader. That they had the opportunity to rectify the shortcomings made while being in power for over 20 years and move forward together with the professionals but they failed to create that new change since they were suppressed by the power-hungry group.
