Securing two thirds easy for UPFA
During the last Presidential Election, the UNP was razed to the
ground while the JVP was fully routed to the zero level. In this
backdrop, it is very easy for the UPFA to secure a two thirds majority
at the forthcoming Parliamentary Election, Power Minister Mahindananda
Speaking at a Yatinuwara electorate SLFP activists’ meeting held at
the CPC Governor’s office auditorium on Saturday, Minister Aluthgamage
said the people had brought down in order the Senior SLFP’ers in place
of the JVP candidates in the Preferential vote at the General Election
in 2004 and added that these very JVPers had finally done the greatest
betrayal by supporting Sarath Fonseka at the Presidential Election.
If Sarath Fonseka had by any chance won the Presidential Election, we
would not be alive today.
This time the people thought of the country first. They gave second
thought to their stomachs.
The President has won the first challenge of eliminating terrorism
from this soil.
The second challenge is to rebuild the country after obtaining a two
thirds majority in Parliament.
