Change vs Status Quo
Lasting peace and stability:
The voters of Sri Lanka will certainly deliver
their verdict on the Presidential election on January 26, 2010 in a
democratic and discreet manner, answering the issue that had been
raised by the challenger who demands “Change” in indecent haste and
unbridled hate, against the incumbent President Mahinda Rajapaksa
who valiantly restored the “Status Quo” that Sri Lankans now enjoy
since about May 19, 2009, having realized a long lasting dream of
peace and tranquillity that the country had been deprived of for
over three decades.
The Morning Inspection - Malinda
The Fonseka option: Change, small change or short-change?
It is natural for people to have differences of
opinion. Some people cannot understand why others would want to vote
for Mahinda Rajapaksa. Others, similarly, are appalled that there
are people who want to vote for Sarath Fonseka. I am appalled that
not many want to vote for someone other than these two candidates.
Leadership on the road to stability
Lankan leaders who did not kowtow to foreign
pressure and anarchists to destabilize the country:
At this moment we are facing another dilemma in
the Sri Lankan politics. The voter who gave full support to end the
terrorist war of 26 years has the carpet pulled under his feet. My
thoughts at this time goes to our past leaders who bravely followed
a line of action which was independent but traditional and made the
world look up to our democracy. Our leaders of the past, like the
present President, has acted in the interest of our country.
