It’s going to be a decisive election; we’ll definitely achieve a unique victory – Anura Dissanayake
“The NPP is contesting this election after defeating all the efforts of the government to postpone the election. And we will achieve a unique victory. That victory will become the biggest political turning point in Sri Lanka’s history and the most unique transformational election. We request everyone to rally with us,” emphasized NPP and JVP leader Anura Dissanayake.
He emphasized this while addressing a press conference held at the JVP head office at Pelawatta yesterday (8th).
Dr Nihal Abeysinghe, the secretary of the NPP, and its national executive members Prof. Chandana Abeyratne and Dr Anura Karunathilaka also attended the event.
Speaking further, Anura Dissanayake said, “Even though the Election Commission has declared that it is ready to hold an election, Ranil Wickramasinghe and Pohottuwa group are making various attempts to postpone the elections. Recently, the President had called the officials of the Election Commission to his office. The President is the UNP leader. One of the party leaders convening the Independent Election Commission when the date has been fixed for nominations is definitely an undue influence on the commission. He is not only the leader of the UNP but also the President chosen by the parliament. When all the other parties went to the commission’s office to meet the commission, only Ranil called the commission to his office. There is no doubt that this shows that a fair election is not allowed to be held and it influences not to hold an election. If Ranil Wickramasinghe is trying to hold power by force without letting the will of the people of our country, it will cause a big conflict. Therefore, the NPP is working to defeat everything the government is doing to prevent the election. Therefore, we tell the people that this election will be held as scheduled. We will provide the support for that.
This election is very crucial. It is considered a village election. But this local government election has come at a very critical moment in the country. There was a great uprising of the people of our country. The former rulers were kicked out. But an unexpected person became the President once the former President fled. A distorted cabinet has been replaced the cabinet. Instead of the prime minister, someone who has no sense has become the prime minister. Therefore, public opinion is not represented now. Therefore, this vote becomes a vote that reflects the true will of the people. The Election Commission has already been informed that the NPP will compete for the 340 local government institutions, including the North and East. Presenting a strong team that can fulfil the expectations of the people. Also, we have done a big political work with the village, and it has been successful.
The people expect that the political and economic system that has led our country for a long time should change. The NPP represents this change. The citizens of this country are requested to choose the NPP if they have an expectation for building this country. We are ready to turn this election struggle into a national struggle. This local government election does not stop there.
After this election, they can measure the position of the President and the government. Neither the government nor the President has a mandate. The result of this election confirms it. Then comes a crisis of running the government. Therefore, an opportunity to build a new government is created. The NPP has planned this political battle to build the central government by winning a significant number of local government institutions in this election and nullifying the power of the President with that power.
People took to the streets to eliminate fraud and corruption in this country. People took to the streets to reassert the authority of the broken rule of law. There was a slogan saying that thieves and corrupt people should not be allowed to escape from this country. Also, people’s opposition to this economic and political system has been going on for a long time. There is a slogan that it should be changed. All these people’s expectations are represented by the NPP. Therefore, we invite the people to use that opportunity in the right way because the opportunity has now arisen to bring about the final result of the struggle that achieved certain victories. We invite farmers, fishermen, civil servants, professionals, industrialists, entrepreneurs, artists, journalists, all those who want to change this country, now is the time to do it. Appoint the NPP to be the people’s center that will change the country. We invite the people to help NPP make this change.
Also, Ranil Wickramisamha has started a new drama. He says there is no money to hold an election. It’s a cock and bull story. The ruler can empty the treasury at any time, destroy the country’s economy, and say there is no money to hold elections. We say that we must hold elections to expel these rulers who have destroyed the country and emptied the treasury. Do you want to allow those who have ruined a country’s economy to continue to rule by saying that they have no money to hold an election?
We need the election to oust the rulers who have destroyed the economy because they cannot give medicine to the hospital because they cannot give children a meal because they cannot give jobs to the youth, because they have destroyed businesses, and because they have brought the producers into a big disaster, and because they have taken away the income of the fishermen and farmers.
The NPP is contesting this election after defeating the government’s efforts to postpone the election. And we will achieve a unique victory. That victory will become the biggest political turning point in Sri Lanka’s history and the most unique transformational election. We request everyone to rally with us.”
