Resolution by ‘patriotic’ MPs is nothing but a gimmick – Comrade Anura Dissanayaka

The resolution that UNHRC should not carry out an investigation regarding Sri Lanka to be presented to Parliament by a group of ‘patriotic’ MPs of the government is nothing but a political gimmick of the government says the Leader of the JVP Comrade Anura Dissanayaka.

Speaking at a media conference held today (13th) Comrade Anura Dissanayaka said the JVP put forward several amendments to the resolution by government MPs and the response of the JVP regarding the resolution would be announced considering the response of the government on those amendments.


Let’s make politics a service to the people instead of a business – Comrade Anura Dissanayaka

Politics, instead of a business, should be a service for the people says the Leader of the JVP Comrade Anura Dissanayaka.

Speaking at a seminar held at the Postal Auditorium in Kandy to apprise the masses regarding ‘Our Vision’, the policy framework adopted by the JVP at its 7th National Convention, Comrade Anura Dissanayaka said, “Before the 18th amendment to the Constitution was adopted a person in our country could hold the position of the president only twice. The incumbent president brought the 18th amendment and got it adopted. There are provisions to amend the Constitution. This could be done with the 2/3rd majority in Parliament or 2/3rd majority plus a referendum. The Supreme Court determines a bill required to be passed by such special majority. However, when the 18th amendment was presented to Parliament the Supreme Court determined that 2/3rd majority was sufficient to adopt it. We did not agree to it.


JVP will never support a UNP candidate

“The JVP will never support a UNP candidate at a future presidential election. The UNP candidate can never be a common candidate. Shallow talks of a common candidate without a broad programme carried out by bankrupt political parties or various other groups merely to come to power do not have any validity in our society now. What is needed now is a broad programme that could defeat this government as well as establish a government that could find solutions for crises confronted by the country. Any candidate should come forward after formulating such a policy framework, rallying masses around it and representing that people’s force. We are campaigning for such a candidate.
