Thinking Beyond Party Poltical - Allies

In 1947, The Parliamentary system was introduced to this country by the Soulbury Constitution. Since then people of this country had to adjust to the introduced system and today we are enjoying and experiencing its fullest outcomes and results. Term power has inevitably, ultimately become a very decisive factor of every facets of life of the people of this country.

Often, i felt that directly or indirectly it has entered into almost every sides of people's life, personal, carrier, social or cultural. sometimes it is little difficult to differentiate from other activities, decisions, livelihoods, Education of people. In what ever people purchase they can enjoy the mentioned term. In what ever thing that you think of starting , what ever amount of capital you think of investing, what ever job you are planning to or hoping to apply for the term power is an obvious factor. it is not just something that began one or two decades ago or i think it has a long history.

if i explain it in one word everything has become very politicized.

In the recent past i did not notice a main single party coming to power without any allies after the formed ally defeated the UNP that ruled this country for 17 years.  i was little thinking of the reasons.

Was it because some singular parties loosened their political power gradually within. or is it because apart from the main popular parties the rise of total number of minor or tiny parties over years?

what is the reason for that?

Is it because political awareness among people has increased?

Is it because they, like never before, shown more interest in joining the 'power gaining category'

Is it because they have understood that Money is not anymore the 'power' of the world but the and 'political power?

Is it because if any individual has money power and can without any issues to deposit the need amount, as a guarantee(?) to get the 'nominations'?

Is it because most have lost faith in big parties established in the system for years and fed up of them?

Is it  because they think that 'we heard enough of slogans and other short listed or chosen set of political words ever since the system was introduced to people of this land?

 E.g. there is a set of words that any current government use about their agendas, what they do, what they plan to do, and there is always opposition /s, some look at things critically because they sit on the side of the opposition. corruption is one of the words that any government governing the country before or later an election uses , in their speeches, when they talk of any existed governments. If you take 100 words they speak , word 'corruption' they like or enjoy using at least 50%. and the other half 'boasts of what they do', did or willing to do in the future.

Lets have a look at following information to get an idea about number of parties contested each year

i refrain from mentioning the independent candidates

In 1994 an election was held for the 10th Parliament ( 1994 - 2001) Marked end of 17 years of UNP rule.  Peoples Alliance ( PA) won the election ad Mrs. CBK became the First elected female President of the country. and Mrs. Bandaranayake became the Prime minister of her government and she was accredited and honored by her daughter President giving her dignified farewell to her in 10th August 2000.

2005 - 2014 ( Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse became the Two times elected President within this period)

2009 was the most remarkable year that the Sri Lankan Government won the War against Terror LTTE that ruined this country for over 30 years and was anunable to solve the issue permanently  by any of the governed party. The issue was totally eradicated by winning the war  with the help of all soul good allies ( all Security Forces of the country) The secretary of Defense was  Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapakse

If you carefully analyze all those parliaments existed in the country, there were significant events took place some of the events were important personally for the carrier politicians and yes for the country. e.g. World's first Woman Prime Minister, First President of the country (Executive President Mr. JRJ), First female President of the country ( Mrs. CBK, again an executive President). Winning the humanitarian war against terrorism in 2009 of course highly important for all and every member who wish to have a world free from terrorism of any kind, allies who constantly support and fight against any kind of terror activities currently and in the history- world) by the government headed by Mr. MR

Sir, Former President Mahinda Rajapakse

We ( all who love peace and harmony) like to Honor you for what you have given us, A Terror Free Land to live

May you long live!
