President Maithripala Sirisena has said that we should give priority for the future of our Motherland first and not the personal interests of each and every person. He said this as a reply to a question often asked him, what he would do after completing the five year term.
The President made these remarks, speaking at a ceremony to present appointment letters to Co-Chairmen of the District Coordination Committees held at the Presidential Secretariat, yesterday (06).
Expressing his views regarding the political situation of the country , he said that even though the government has paid attention to implement a new constitution not yet any official discussions were held or nor any proposals were accepted.
President Sirisena further said that in contrary to the actual situation some sections of the society are attempting to promote racism in the country and he added that the implementation of the new constitution will not be done in a hidden manner.
