Bookmark I will not abolish the Executive Presidency, General Fonseka

2096Sarath_Fonseka_1JGeneral Sarath Fonseka is yet to announce whether he will contest as a Presidential Candidate at the next election, a gridlock has emerged. Reliable sources who spoke on condition of anonymity said Fonseka has categorically stated that he will not abolish the Executive Presidency. Abolishing Executive Presidency is a vital component of the campaign spearheaded by the United National Alliance.

He has vowed as a first step, in the event he wins a presidential election, to give teeth with immediate effect to the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery and Corruption. Fonseka compared his approach to political challenges to how he dealt with corruption and inefficiency in the Sri Lanka Army. “I will begin at the top,” he has told confidantes.

Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe denied that Fonseka, if indeed he consents to running as the Common Candidate, would insist on continuing the Executive Presidency. Wickremesinghe said that the chosen candidate, if elected, would be compelled to implement the pledges of the United National Alliance.  from sundayleader
