The cold war within SLFP delays 20A – Comrade Vijitha Herath

"There was a dialogue in the country that the electoral system should be changed. There were continuous proposals that the preferential system should be given up a system that brings Parliamentarians closer to the masses should be adopted. Despite the preferential voting system existed in the country, the JVP never fought for preferential votes. We have agreed to a mixed system that gives up preferential system. We took part in discussions regarding a new electoral system from the beginning of the ‘100 Day’ programme.


Appointing more ministers to expired government is a total disregard of the mandate given by the masses – Comrade Tilvin Silva

Four new deputy ministers have been appointed yesterday (11th) as well. Appointing ministers in this manner is not necessary. Appointing new ministers cannot be a healthy move as the ‘100 day programme’ of the government has ended and already 150 days have passed since the government began its programme. The requirement of the moment is to dissolve Parliament and let masses elect a new Parliament. Appointing such ministers has become a joke and a farce. A certain number of ministers were sworn in when the ‘hundred day’ government was formed. There was no protest for such appointments then. However, masses felt the number of ministers was a bit too many.
