Hold Presidential Poll prior to General Election: Mujibur Rahman

Mujibur Rahman 700 01

United National Parliamentarian Mujibur Rahman has observed that Presidential elections should be held prior to holding the General election.

Mujibur Rahuman made this request addressing the House on Tuesday. During his speech, Mujibur said:

“The issue here is with the executive. If we hold a Presidential election, we could then find out which side has the power. Even if we go for a General election and win, we still would have to work with the current President. But we cannot work with him as he is preventing us from working by obstructing our path. Hence, what is more important is to hold the Presidential election. Therefore, we urge the President who came into power by riding on our backs, to hold a Presidential election first.

After January 8, the President could call for a Presidential election at any time. No one has been able to challenge the majority of our party. Duminda Dissanayake and group have still not come to Parliament. The crisis is within the Opposition party. They need to resolve their internal issues first.

Foreign ambassadors witnessed the havoc that was caused in Parliament by some MPs. The behaviour of these MPs has brought shame on the country. We are unable to walk on roads. Hence these MPs need to be taught to behave, especially in front of foreigners, as it reflects badly on the country. They must have felt that they were in a zoo. We should be ashamed of how these MPs behaved in Parliament that day. It is irrelevant which party we belonged to, we must know how to conduct ourselves in a manner that would not tarnish the image of the country."
