It’s a dirty game; we do not accept the ‘opinion – JVP

“The President is playing a ‘dirty game’. He used the judiciary to get the viewpoint he wanted. As such, we do not accept the opinion given by the judiciary. We would continue the struggle that says ‘Mahinda cannot’ until the last moment,” said the General Secretary of the JVP Tilvin Silva at a media conference held at the head office of the JVP at Pelawatta today (12th). Attorney-at-Law Sunil Watagala was also present.


Opinion of SC cannot be sought regarding an individual’s disqualification

“There is no ‘public importance’ in the issue raised by the President.  Mahinda Rajapaksa is disqualified to go for a third term. It is an issue of the individual called Mahinda Rajapaksa. When he was elected by the people on 27th January, 2010 for the position of president he automatically gets disqualified to contest for a third term. Mahinda Rajapaksa’s disqualification has not been removed from the 18th amendment either. It is the disqualified Mahinda Rajapaksa who has asked the question whether he could contest for a third term. The President cannot ask an opinion regarding it,” said the Leader of the JVP Comrade Anura Dissanayaka. He said this at a press conference held at the head office of the JVP at Pelawatta today (6th).
Comrade Anura Dissanayaka said, “The President has sought the opinion of the Supreme Court regarding two definite matters. They are whether a presidential election could be held before 4 years of his term has completed and whether the incumbent president could come forward if such an election is held.
