I strongly condemn the brutal terrorist attack in Kashmir's Pulwama district — the worst ever terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir since 1989. I express my condolences to @narendramodi and the families of police officers who lost their lives.
I have instructed all officials to expedite relief efforts to those affected by the floods in the Killinochchi District. The Finance Ministry will immediately commence compensation for those affected. I appeal to the private sector to assist in providing relief wherever possible.
Today marks a victory not for myself or for the UNP. It is a victory for Sri Lanka’s democratic institutions and the sovereignty of our citizens. I thank everyone who stood firm in defending the constitution and ensuring the triumph of democracy.
We trust that the President will promptly respect the judgment of the courts. The legislature, judiciary, and the executive are equally important pillars of a democracy and the checks and balances that they provide are crucial to ensuring the sovereignty of its citizens.
The triumph of democratic institutions over the whims of individuals is the legacy of the good governance agenda. We will continue to defend the sovereignty of our citizens and we stand ready to face elections in a legitimate manner in line with the constitution.
We stabilized the economy amidst turbulent global conditions. By Oct ‘18 we had 0.1% inflation,US$8bn reserves, best ever exports & FDI in ‘17, a primary budget surplus, and growth recovery through Enterprise Sri Lanka and Gampereliya. The economy has since been totally derailed.
The events of this afternoon were not merely a disruption of the House, but an attempt to destroy parliamentary democracy. Thank you to the Speaker, the brave police officers and the MPs who stood firm against threats, intimidation and thuggery to protect the democratic process.
We will now take steps to ensure that the government in place before the 26th Oct will continue. I wish to inform all government servants and police that you cannot carry out illegal orders from the purported government that has failed to demonstrate the confidence of the people.
It is incorrect to say that Parliament was adjourned without a conclusive decision. The Speaker ruled that this purported government does not enjoy the confidence of the House and is illegal. We have further provided a confirmation signed by 122 MPs in favour of this resolution.
The people have won their first victory. Let's go forward and re-establish the sovereignty of the people in our beloved country.
We will not allow the precious freedoms that we have fought hard to secure to be stolen from us. I promise you that we who value our democracy will work together to save our nation from this unprecedented crisis. 2/2
Today, our country finds itself in an extremely unfortunate and critical situation. We must decide now whether we stand for the protection of democracy, the protection of the supreme law of the land, and the defence of justice. 1/2
“The Constitution doesn’t make provision for personal prejudices”.
Diwali, the Festival of Lights, symbolizes the triumph of good over evil, of knowledge over ignorance. I wish all those celebrating today in Sri Lanka and around the world a joyous Diwali!
Whatever President Sirisena’s personal issues with me may be, he should not hold the people he has been elected to serve to ransom by plunging the country into constitutional chaos through his illegal and immoral actions.
It is encouraging that the Speaker has issued a strong statement condemning the unconstitutional actions of the President. Protests taking place all across the island demonstrate the necessity of resolving this crisis by democratic means, within the framework of the Constitution.
Every day that the convening of Parliament is delayed is a nail in the coffin of democracy in our country. The sovereignty of the people is eroded each day. Convene Parliament immediately.
