    Maithripala Sirisena sworn in as New President and Ranil as Prime Minister Featured

    January 09, 2015

    Maithripala Sirisena was sworn in as the sixth  Executive President of Sri Lanka amidst blessings from the religious leaders Friday (09) evening.

    Maithripala Sirisena was sworn in as the 6th Executive President before Justice  K. Sri Pawan at a ceremony held at the Independence Square in Colombo.


    It was a historic moment as the Leader of the Opposition  Ranil Wickramasinghe too was sworn in as Sri Lanka's Prime Minister before President Maithripala Sirisena.


    In his speech the new President  said that during the period of this election the state media  ignoring media ethics violated all election guidelines.  He said that no other President would have encountered such character assassinations and mud slinging campaigns from state media as he did.  He pointed out that a political culture should be set out to encompass the deep-rooted, well-established political traits that are characteristic of a society.


    The President emphasized that he would take all measures possible to fulfill the pledges given in the manifesto thus bringing prosperity among the nation.


    He quoted the Dhammapada:


    "Nahi Verena Verai—Snammanti dha Kudacancam
    Averenacca Sammanti—esa dhammo Sanantano"

    “Hatred never ceases through hatred, but through love alone they cease”. This is an eternal law. (KH)
