President Maithripala Sirisena was expected to make a few changes to the Government in the near future, UPFA Secretary Minister Mahinda Amaraweera told the Daily Mirror.

“The President conveyed this at a special meeting held with Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members in Colombo today,” he said.

Meanwhile, Minister Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena said they, as the SLFP, allowed the President to decide whether the SLFP could continue in this manner.

    We need a general election immediately to wipe away the past gloomy 3 years of MS and RW and look forward to a prosperous new era with MR who had proven it more than capable in his past two terms.

    That is great news Sir. You need to get rid of the rouges of both sides and from a new government. Time is running out. For a start remove the PM and his stooges who robbed the Central Bank.

    In 2015 MS and RW started with good intentions. (and) once saw the raw meat on gravy ..... couldn't help it and the nature of the local politician set-in. As the two individuals used a clan of rogues to swindle left right and the center. People and their families now understands the gravity of losses. Too late for sweet talk you are not fit for the job. Next PE MS has to go and we will show you the way out.

    Will it be old wine in new bottles? Here are 5 things government need to do;1.Bring the cost of living down2.Speed-up economic development (roads, rural areas, IT infrastructure, education, investment opportunities, agriculture, domestic products, foreign employment, and medical care).3.Sustain good governance and take proper legal action and hold those squandered public funds accountable (this and previous govt).4.Cut down wastage in ministries – reduce the ministries to a maximum of 10 and cut the red tape/ bureaucracy in the government.5.Set a qualification criteria to enter into politics – get rid of those who haven’t performed (don’t give them different ministries).

    At least now this " Kaalakanni and Ponna: Sirisena and Ranil must resign immediately. The great former President Mahinda Rajapaksa must come into power immediately and rule the country for at least 15 more years.
