Democracy, Sovereignty, and the three arms of governance

In a democratic government, the three main columns of governance are the Executive, Legislature, and the Judiciary. Each should be independent, and should not interfere with other functions. However, each of the three arms functions and activities should be transparent to the public. Each of the arms should not assume that it is superior to the other and overexercise its authority. (Ref: SriLanka, Sovereignty, Democracy & Terrorism by Kanthar Balanathan)

In a sovereign State/Nation, all three arms should have authority by the people of the nation. When SL received its so-called mirage independence, on the 4th February 1948, the key arm, “Judiciary” remained with the British Government. This is the Privy Council. Although Courts were conducting judiciary functions in SL, the supreme authority of the Judiciary function was in London.
Therefore, it cannot be determined that SL was a democratic country until the 22nd of May 1972 when the country became a republic and a 100% sovereign state. In this context please refer to http://nrnmind.blogspot.com.au/2017/12/imperfections-drawbacks-in-practice-in.html.  A Tamil was able to win a case in the Privy Council against the GOSL.

The anecdote now is that we are still celebrating the 4th February as the Independence Day and not the 22nd May. Is it because our politician's mind is clouded and confused or made to obscure by the British? OR is it because we think that we achieved a milestone (victory) on the 4th February, although SL received its independence with no loss of lives. It may be that we still have the slave mindset. Well, SL did not become a sovereign state on the 4th February 1948.
Speech by SriLankan Tamils on Independence Day celebration 2018
SriLanka is trying to surface and achieve progress, reconciliation, peace, and growth. Most of the Sinhale presenters gave good speech In Melbourne.

Tamil Australian politicians should remember that they are the representatives of the Australian people and they have not been elected in SriLanka. Particularly the “GREENS”. Here are the details of the Australian constitution.

The author is not a Constitutional Law expert; however, from what I read on the functions of the Australian Senate I read section 1, subsections (a) & (b) as follows:

(1) As an essential of federalism, to ensure adequate representation of the people of all the states, the main elements being:
(a) Equal representation of the people of the Original States;
(b) equal legislative powers: except for the financial initiative, powers which, in effect, are equal to those of the House of Representatives: The Senate cannot be compelled to pass any proposed legislation; except for certain financial bills it has unrestricted right of amendment; in respect of those money bills which it cannot amend, the Senate has the right to make, and to insist on, requests to the House of Representatives for amendments.]

Can we interpret that the functions of the Senate are mainly to address the issues relating to the Australian people and the states?

While Australia has a Foreign Minister, there is no sponsorship required for every Tom, Dick & Harry Tamil Australian politician to go about talking about 83 riots and suffering etc in an Independence Day celebration. “It will be only pouring fuel into a fire”

Any Australian citizen can ask the question whether the person is fit to represent the Australian people?

Education, and intelligence of voters and candidates.

SriLanka is full of congenitally imbecilic people. Most of the Tamils and Sinhalese citizens are imbecilic. A bottle of Arrack and a packet of Biriyani will drive them to vote for the candidate who supplied. This may be because the people have no understanding and knowledge of politics, economics, and industrial growth.

The initial concept of democratic election is that since the majority of the people are uneducated, the thoughts by most of the people was that an uneducated person will better serve the mass. Here the failure is that an uneducated person (candidate/politician) has no idea of what the people need and how he can serve them. The purpose of job specification for an engineer/technician/doctor is to select candidates who are fit for duty. In SriLanka, most of the politicians are drawn from the uneducated lot. It is also possible that the leader may assume that any intelligent person drawn may be a challenge to him. A fool could be easily manipulated. The SriLankan culture is to draw from the lawyers which are the reason our country has not developed to date.

The Lawyer culture of politics should change.
The imbecilic Sinhale mass should get up from sleep and elect honest people who can serve better for them.
How this has impacts on growth and development
Politicians talk of development and growth. However, how many of our politicians spend the allocated funds for their electorate? Every fellow may have a Swiss account, accrue multi-millions of wealth, get their kith and kin into public service, enjoy their life. Do they have an age limit to serve? Recent speculation in the media is that Rs 32 crores were given to the TNA. Where have they hoarded the money?

Just a simple question. From the time of independence, and SJVC started his Federalism, what have they done to their people in the North? Well, simply nothing. Its cyclic for the FP to have the federal /Tamil Eelam ball rolling so that the imbecilic Tamils who have been brainwashed to vote for them.
Finally, the majority of the Tamils are fools, keep on electing the old culprits.
Bond sales and scams

Since the irregular sale of Bond by Arjuna Mahendran, GOSL is playing Billiards to fool the people. The LOP, Sambanthar is playing along with the rulers without realizing the consequences. Arresting and releasing people is the game GOSL plays to fool the poor Sinhale mass. GOSL should by now know that there are intellectual Diaspora who could monitor and judge the Coolie politicos. Why has GOSL not taken legal action against the Bond culprits? A man who robs a loaf of bread is put into prison, however, billions Rs fraud goes scot free. These are going into history.
