What would have happened to our country if the January 8 transformation had not occurred? Addressing an event in Colombo on Wednesday, September 14, President Maithripala Sirisena posed this question to those who criticise him, as well as the government.

The president was speaking at the launching ceremony of the book Ma Dhutu Janavari 8 or The January 8th witnessed by me written by the Member of Parliament Malith Jayathilaka.

The President said ” By mid 2013, we were preparing for the elections. The then government appointed committees to make primary preparations for this. However, as a Minister I was not included in any of those committee. Those were secretive committees and included persons from the Presidential Secretariat and external organisations. As they governed the country excluding the ministers, they attempted to organise an election.”
