We Support the President!

We have decided to support President Mahinda Rajapaksa to be President of Sri Lanka for the next six years.

We believe it is in the best interest of Sri Lanka, and the World at large, that he be elected again for the following reasons:

1. He defeated a ruthless enemy after 30 years of war,and without his focus and vision this should not have been possible.

2. As a Sri Lankan national, the President has the support of the majority Singhalese, and hence he and he alone and bring about a resolution to the on going Tamil problem. We believe the President has the support of the people of Sri Lanka to bring about implementing the 13th Amendment, thereby making peace with the Tamils of Sri Lanka and above all the Indian Government, whom he has promised to get this amendment finalized.

3. We strongly commend the President for standing against all the foreign powers who would have negotiated with the Tamil Tigers, even when the Tigers were on the verge of defeat. That we believe was bravery of the highest order, and we all salute him for his independent stance against the foreign Western Powers.

4. We strongly believe for the advancement of Sri Lanka, all the actions of the Government should be transparent and accountable. We strongly urge the Government of Sri Lanka to take all actions for swift punishment against those involved in the assassination of journalists, and allow journalist access to all government matters.

5. We also implore on the President to make sure the Sri Lankan Government adequately screens foreign NGO's prior to be given permission for entry, and that their activities are closely monitored.
