We are committed to protect democracy and not Maithri, Ranil or Mahinda: Vijitha Herath

Vijitha Herath 700 02
The JVP Politburo member Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath has stated that the JVP is concerned not about the promotion of politicians such as Maithripala Sirisena, Ranil Wikremasinghe or Mahinda Rajapakse. What we are committed to is the protection of democracy and the constitution.

Speaking to a daily, Vijitha Herath said: 

“We are not ready to protect President Maithripala Sirisena, Ranil Wickremesinghe or Mahinda Rajapaksa. Our prime concern is to safeguard democracy and uphold democratic principles.

Our position is that the appointment of Rajapaksa and prorogation of Parliament by President Sirisena is a violation of the Constitution and against the democratic way of governance. Therefore, all six members of the JVP will vote against this action in Parliament when a vote is taken.”
