Masses have already decided to chase away government – JVP

The masses have already decided to chase away the present government at the next national election to be held says the Leader of the JVP Parliamentarian Comrade Anura Dissanayaka.  He said this at a media conference held at the party head office at Pelawatta today (21st) afternoon. The General Secretary Comrade Tilvin Silva and the Information Secretary Comrade Vijitha Herath were also present.

Speaking further Comrade Anura Dissanayaka said, “The government had a definite objective in calling the Uva PC election. It is to use it to prepare the environment for the commencement of the next power era of Rajapaksa regime. The government is planning to advance the presidential election due in 2017 to the beginning of 2015. The Uva PC election is a political survey for this. 


JVP prepared to change constitution as well as social & economic system – Comrade Anura Dissanayaka


"We hope to implement a new constitution. However, the issues confronted by a country cannot be solved with a constitution only. The present constitution has created a constitutional dictatorship. The present executive has swallowed the Parliament and the Judiciary.  This constitution allows anyone to go on a despotic path. It has obstructed unity among the Sinhalese, Tamil and Muslims. This is an outdated constitution. It should be changed. There should be a change in social and economic system as well," said the JVP Leader Comrade Anura Dissanayaka addressing the media after he had a discussion with the Mahanayaka of Malwatte Chapter the Most Venerable Thibbatuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thero today (18th) morning. The National Organizer of the JVP Comrade Bimal Ratnayaka too was present.


President will be the loser at the election – Comrade Tilvin Silva

The President who violates election law by participating at propaganda campaigns of UPFA candidates for the Uva PC election and is participating in opening ceremonies that are usually carried out by chairmen of pradeshiya sabhas would be the loser. This would be the election the President would lose. At this election, in which the President is in the forefront of the campaign, the government would lose votes and seats. As such, it is the President who would be the loser says the General Secretary of the JVP Comrade Tilvin Silva.
