Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS - BY YOHAN PER­ERA

I warned that Mr Sirisena would be­come the leader of SLFP and hit the UNP prior to the next pres­i­den­tial elec­tion and my pre­dic­tion had come true to­day

Field Mar­shal Sarath Fon­seka yes­ter­day said he gave a prior warn­ing to those who were be­hind form­ing of the Ya­ha­palana ad­min­is­tra­tion in Jan­uary 2015 not to field Pres­i­dent Maithri­pala Sirisena as their com­mon can­di­date at the last Pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

He said this at a sem­i­nar or­ga­nized by Lawyers for Jus­tice last evening.

“I warned that Mr Sirisena would be­come the leader of SLFP and hit the UNP prior to the next pres­i­den­tial elec­tion and my pre­dic­tion had come true to­day” Fon­seka said. The Sirisena Ra­japaksa ad­min­is­tra­tion will not last long. “Pres­i­dent Sirisena will sack Prime Min­is­ter Mahinda Ra­japaksa one day and ap­point an­other,” he added.

Fur­ther he said a for­eign coun­try is be­hind the present cri­sis. “A for­eign coun­try is fund­ing the gov­ern­ment to win over MPS to its side”.
