President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday said that he had been left with no option but to sack Ranil Wickremesinghe from the post of Prime Minister as he was destroying the noble principles of good governance.

The President was speaking at the SLFP special convention at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium yesterday. He said that Ranil Wickremesinghe destroyed the noble principles of good governance, the grand old party - the UNP too.

“He destroyed me as well to some extent,” the President said. The President added that the former Prime Minister attempted to grab powers which were decentralised under the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.

“I was able to suspend a number of draft Bills which were detrimental to the country. I exert my full force to negate such efforts for the sake of the country”, he said.

President Maithripala Sirisena added that Wickremesinghe is a stubborn, headstrong person who was following far right wing neo-liberal policies.
