That you for your comment. It is currently awaiting moderation.
The best political solution to address the problems faced by various sections of the society - particularly the poor, the politically weak and the “minorities” who do not carry any “political weight” - would be to DILUTE the powers of all elected representatives of the people by separating the various powers of the Parliament and by horizontally empowering different sets of people’s representatives elected on different area basis to administer the different sets of the separated powers at different locations.

It has to be meaningful separation of powers HORIZONTALLY where each and every set of representatives would be in the SAME LEVEL as equals and in par and NOT VERTICALLY, where one set of representatives would be above (more powerful than) the other, which is the normal adopted practice when talking of sharing power, in this power-hungry world. It is because “sharing of power” has been evolved “vertically”, we have all the trouble in this power-hungry world. So, for sustainable peace it should not be the present form of “devolution/sharing of power” but “dilution of powers” or “meaningful sharing of powers” in such a way that no single person or single set of people’s representatives be “superior” to another.

This system would help to eradicate injustice, discrimination, bribery and corruption - the four pillars of an evil society – and help to establish the “Rule of Law” and “Rule by ALL” for sustainable peace, tranquility and prosperity and a pleasant harmonious living with dignity and respect for all the inhabitants in the country. Everyone must have “equal” powers, rights, duties and responsibilities and most importantly everyone should be deemed “equal” and treated “equally” before the law not only on paper but also practically – be it the Head of State, The Chief Justice or the voiceless poor of the poorest in the country.

Since all political and other powers flow from the sovereignty of the people, it is proposed herein that these powers be not given to any ONE set of representatives but distributed among different sets of people’s representatives (groups) elected on different area basis (village and villages grouped) to perform the different, defined and distinct functions of one and the same institution - the Parliament – like the organs of our body – heart, lungs, kidneys, eyes, nose, ear etc. – performing different and distinct functions to enable us to sustain normal life.

Please participate in the discussion.

It has been officially declared that war is over in Sri Lanka and that terrorism has been crushed fully and that it will not raise its head again. good News.

But the way this are happening in Sri lanka does not make people aware that it is true with all the restrictions that is being practiced in the country. Freedom of travel, speech and so on does not seem to be there. Civil society must wake up first to know the extent of losses and find ways and means of getting it back.

I have already made some suggestions in this regard. Many have received it. But none, including Sri Lankans, seem to have commented on it.

If a genuine attempt is made to seriously discuss those suggestions we might be able to present a good set of suggestions to the "professional politicians" and the public of Sri Lanka for due consideration on the need for corrupt-free good governance in Sri Lanka.

The "professional politicians" are hiding the most important fact that one of the real causes for the problems that are being faced by the people of Sri Lanka is CORRUPTION coupled with injustice and discrimination.

Those suggestions were framed with the idea of minimising and then eradication of these evils so as to REAWAKEN SRI LANKA AS A PARADISE ISLE.

It is hoped that everyone will contribute their mite in this mission.
