Colombo (News 1st): Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa highlighted the importance of securing a 2/3rd majority in parliament in order to make some necessary changes to the country.

“A court that bent the law, an Attorney General’s Department that was influenced by politicians. It was a society where politicians roam free after making youth permanently disabled by accidents that they caused. The 19th amendment to the constitution made it impossible for even parliament to remove the Inspector General of Police. It is a country that postponed elections. Our challenge is to bring law and justice back into the judiciary; and letting police to act according to the law. For all that to be done we need to lay the foundation after the upcoming general election. It is only if we get the two-third majority at the election will we be able to fulfill the dreams and aspirations of the people of this country.”

The Prime Minister made this statement at Temple Trees while addressing the youth forum of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna. The chief guest of the event was President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

Speaking at the event he noted that they as leaders of this nation should learn from history. He added that the public elected him as the President not because you needed Gotabaya Rajapaksa. He said he should understand that and take this country forward.

“We have come forward to fulfill the promises that we made. But you know that we can only initiate our own policy and pass our budget after we create our own government. So just like you elected me, it is important to elect a powerful government. That is why we should continue to work with the same commitment that we worked with then.”
