President’s 40-year political career

May 27, 2010 4:01:59 AM - itnnews.lk

President Mahinda Rajapaksa completes 40 years in his political career.

Mahinda Rajapaksa was elected by the people of Beliatta as the youngest Member of Parliament on 27th May 1970. He represented various organizations, including the Student Association and Farmer Groups. This gave him strength to enter Parliament. From then onwards for four decades, he won the hearts of the people and his services were greatly appreciated. He was not rejected by the people at all. Mahinda Rajapaksa was with the ordinary masses whether he was in the Government or Opposition Group.

He won acclamation not only from Sri Lanka but also from the world for the leadership he gave to vanquish the LTTE terrorists who were assumed to be indomitable. Prime TV extends the best wishes for the President to serve the country with more strength in the future.
