First topic message reminder :




Mahinda Rajapakse

Percy Mahendra "Mahinda" Rajapaksa (Sinhala: මහින්ද රාජපක්ෂ, pronounced [maˈhində ˈraːɟəˌpakʂə], Tamil: மகிந்த ராசபக்ச; born 18 November 1945) is the 6th President of Sri Lanka and Commander in Chief of the Sri Lankan Armed Forces. A lawyer by profession, Rajapaksa was first elected to the Parliament of Sri Lanka in 1970, and served as Prime Minister from 6 April 2004 until his victory in the 2005 Presidential election. He was sworn in for a six-year term as president on 19 November 2005. He was re-elected for a second term in office on 27 January 2010.

Mahinda Rajapaksa was born in Weeraketiya in the southern rural district of Hambantota. He hails from a well known political family in Sri Lanka. His father, D. A. Rajapaksa, was a prominent politician, independence agitator, Member of Parliament and Cabinet Minister of Agriculture and Land in Wijeyananda Dahanayake's government. D.M. Rajapaksa, his uncle, was a State Councillor for Hambantota in the 1930s who started wearing the earthy brown shawl to represent kurakkan (finger millet) cultivated by the people of his area, whose cause he championed throughout his life. It is from his example that Rajapaksa wears his characteristic shawl.

Rajapaksa was taught at Richmond College in Galle, before moving to Nalanda College Colombo and later Thurstan College, Colombo. He also had a few cameo roles as a movie actor in Sinhalese movies and worked as a library assistant at Vidyodaya University.

Following the death of his father in 1967, Rajapaksa took over as the SLFP candidate for Beliatta constituency and was elected to Parliament in 1970 as the youngest Member of Parliament at just 24. Later he studied law at the Sri Lanka Law College and took oaths as an attorney-at-law in November 1977. Throughout his parliamentary career, except for the period from 1994–2001 when he was a minister, he continued his law practice in Tangalle.


Maithripala Sirisena

Pallewatte Gamaralalage Maithripala Yapa Sirisena (born 3 September 1951) (known as Maithripala Sirisena) Sinhala: මෛත්‍රිපාල සිරිසේන is a Sri Lankan politician and a member of the Parliament of Sri Lanka. He joined mainstream politics in 1989 and has held several ministries since 1994. He is the General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party and was Minister for Health until 2014. He escaped an assassination attempt carried out by a suicide cadre of the LTTE in 2008.

On 21 November 2014, Sirisena announced his candidacy for the 2015 presidential election as the opposition coalition's 'Common Candidate'.

Sirisena was born on 3 September 1951 in Gampaha. Later, his family moved to Hingurakgoda in Polonnaruwa as part of the 'Govi Janapada' (farmers' community) movement initiated by Prime Minister D. S. Senanayake. He was educated at Royal College, Polonnaruwa. He went on to read agriculture at the School of Agriculture in Kundasale, and worked as a Grama Sevaka (village officer) for a period. Sirisena was jailed after the 1971 JVP Insurrection, although his involvement in it was never clearly established.

Sirisena joined the Sri Lanka Freedom Party 1979 as the secretary of its district organization. He became the president of the All Island Sri Lanka Freedom Party Youth Organization.

In 1989, Sirisena contested for the general elections from the Polonnaruwa District and became a MP. At the 1994 general elections he obtained the highest number of preferential votes (62,925), and was made the Deputy Minister for Irrigation and Mahaweli River Development.

Sirisena was elected to be the Secretary General of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party. In 1994, he was appointed the Minister for River Basin Development and Rajarata Development, a newly created Ministry. He then served as the Cabinet Minister for Agricultural Development and Agrarian Services Development in the current Sri Lankan government, and subsequently held the Health portfolio until November 2014..

Assassination attempt
On 9 October 2008 an attack was carried out by unidentified gunman targeting Sirisena at Katuwawala, Piliyandala. The attack was carried out when his motorcade was en route to the capital, but ultimately missed the ministerial vehicle. Although Sirisena escaped unhurt 7 others were injured and 1 killed.

2015 Presidential Election
Following weeks of speculation in the press, Sirisena defected to the UNP-led opposition coalition on the 21st November 2014 along with half a dozen SLFP MPs, and was declared the common opposition candidate for the 2015 presidential election. Subsequent to this announcement, Sirisena's cabinet portfolio and party membership were revoked.

I am for MR as well

Reasons:
*Chandrika and Ranil did more harm to the country than good.

* I am shocked at the whole photo editing done by MY3 (Dr. Lester James Peiris). Everyone is saying MR is doing dirty tactics to get votes isn't this also dirty tactics done by my3...Where is the change?aint they same as MR?

* Electing my3 who is backed by Ranil,Chandrika etc is not change.

*I will always remember MR for giving the support to our forces to finish the war and not giving into International pressure.Hats of to MR...now UN wants to bring war crimes...We are all benefiting the dividends of peace cause the war is over it's very sad too see people saying to vote for MY3 just to avoid the UN resolution. so in other words what people are saying is its k if MR is charged for war crimes...Very sad to hear people say things like this...I will vote for MR for finishing the war and not giving into International pressure.

* There is major development work being carried out around the country...Ex:Just go to Jafna and see the amount of development done that is just one example....

* There is definitely foreign influence in our country due to the strategic location of SL that's why certain foreign countries dont like MR as he is a strong leader....

so my vote is for MR

I think this not real opinion of members of this forum

Most of them effected due to govt manipulation and mis mismanagement of SL stock market by appointing political   people without suitable qualification ,Person like Indrani Sugathedasa. My loss due to 'Sgathdasa effect' was over  5 hundred thousand

What about the effect of mismanagement of other sects and institution.Air Lanka,CPC,CBC ect

Next president MR or MS most probably MS according to available  statistics must think of this  when appointing people to manage  Public sector institution

Best thing to select people by a committee. Under The mahinda Chithana people were selected by set of fools in president office

I understand CB had a meeting decided ministers and secretaries to be appointed

CB,s biggest problem is she can,t identify people. We the level of secretaries and chairman appointed by her . Some of CAS officers appointed by her was not able to write a letter in sihala or English .I know this because i work in vocational traning ministry during her time

Any who want to to introduce good governance should be able understand people

I think next govt will have a good system to select people to manage public sector institutions Under either MR or MS

Even surveys conducted on scientific basis are not all ways correct

Results of our university surveys depend on assumptions

Usually assumption based on political connections of surveyors

We ca see real situation after mid night to day
