Mar 30, Colombo: The victory of the ruling party is a clear mandate by the Sri Lankan people against the UN rights resolution threatening the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country, Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa said today.

President Rajapaksa in a special statement thanked the voters of the Western and Southern provinces for placing their trust in the government and its development plans and said the victory is a fitting-reply to the anti-Sri Lankan elements.

"The outstanding victory of the Alliance at the Provincial Council Elections is a certificate given by the people for the Government's people friendly programs," the President said in his message.

"People have given a clear message that no international interference would be tolerated," he said.

He stressed that no outside force can deny the needs of the nation and the government is committed to strengthen the hard won freedom and to accelerate the development programs.

"The results of the Provincial council Elections have once again shown that no force can defeat the aspirations of the nation, and the people will not allow international pressures," he stressed.

The President emphasized that the people's consent is important more than anything else and said that the government will never leave room for any force to ruin the independence and the sovereignty of the country and suppress the hopes of the nation.

The ruling party, United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) once again swept the provincial polls held Saturday for the Western and Southern Provinces.

The President also expressed gratitude to all parties that extended support to hold the election in a free and fair manner.
