2015 mandate to Maithripala, Ranil nullified by humiliating defeat: Dullas


JO Parliamentarian Dallas Allahaperuma has stated that the 2015 mandate given to President Maithripala Sirisena and Premier Ranil Wickremasinghe has been nullified by the humiliating defeat they suffered at the recent local government polls.

He was addressing the media at the Dr.N.M.Perera Centre in Borella. He stated that a vast majority of people had voted against the government. Some had sought to portray overwhelming vote for SLPP as a rejection of PM Wickremesinghe. The results reflected the growing public anger and resentment towards the administration. It is not merely against Wickremesinghe as some wanted the people to believe. It is against the government.

He charged that President Sirisena and PM Wickremesinghe couldn't even win Polonnaruwa and Colombo districts. In fact, yahapalana leaders had badly lost north central and western provinces, respectively while except four cabinet ministers and two state ministers, all lost their electorates. SLFP General Secretary Duminda Dissanayake and UPFA General Secretary Mahinda Amaraweera, too, lost their home bases.
