“Unprecedented unison of parties, let’s make it a success” :Ranil from the House


Prime Minister Ranil wickremasinghe has appealed to the nation to extend fullest support to the journey for a common cause for there is an unprecedented unison of parties and mainly of the two main parties. ‘ Let us make the 100 day program a success’, he stressed.

Addressing the House yesterday for the first time after the election of the new President Sirisena, he said: "This is a very special parliament in Sri Lankan history because for the first time the two main parties and many other parties have come to a consensus to move forward in unison for a common cause. This is a new experience and unprecedented in our history. To make this journey a success, we need the support of everybody. There are many challenges both local and international before us today. To win against these challenges, we need to muster the support of all.

We hope to bring about radical pieces of legislation before this parliament under the 100 Day Programme including a bill to transfer the executive powers of the President to Parliament through the cabinet of ministers, the 19th amendment to the constitution repealing the provisions of the 18th amendment and to establish independent commissions, a bill on national drug policy, national auditing act and right to information act. We will introduce the 19th Amendment to the constitution repealing the provisions of the 18th amendment to establish independent commissions and bring about a solution to the national problem.


The new amendment will preserve the unitary status and the provisions of the 13th amendment will be implemented within that frame. Irrespective of being Sinhala, Tamil or Muslim, we must try to find a solution as Sri Lankans. I am surprised to see a statement made by MP Wimal Weerawansa this morning. I want to tell him one thing. You are the one who destroyed President Mahinda Rajapaksa. I request you not to destroy the rest. We should abhor racism.

Finding a solution is not only a responsibility of the TNA, but also of all of us including the government, opposition, JVP and everybody. It is our responsibility and duty. We should show the country that we all can sit together and iron out our differences to find a solution."
