    Ok , Mr TA , now tell us in your next conference how you safeguard UNpiers with the move - That was your prime motive of crossing over - Keep one thing in mind that average public in SL are not as foolish as you I relate his cross over to late Anura Bandaranayaka , when ever he crossed the party got defeated .

    Based on this decision, can expect more crossovers from government to common candidate!!! Wrong decision at the wrong time!!!

    shaggy baba Thursday, 11 December 2014 11:15 AM

    Hon. Dr. Mervyn Silva (FRCS. MBBS, ETC, ETC) would have been a better choice.

    Vijith Pieterz Thursday, 11 December 2014 11:24 AM

    Correct the real SLFP guns will march towards the common candidate within the couple of days. Good show...

    lal Thursday, 11 December 2014 11:24 AM
