Duminda Dissanayake says that even though he was elected President by the majority of voters, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa cannot change everything at once and that he is not a magician. Dissanayake says everyone should support the President in order to work for the country.
He was speaking at a meeting in Mihintale.
The Minister says that a strong Parliament should be able to make a direct decision for Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and a two thirds majority should be obtained at the next general election.
Dissanayake also pointed out that certain rules and regulations need to be changed. He emphasizes that it is not possible to go ahead with such outdated laws.
