    First 100 days Ranil and Maithri, When they completed the program, In the General election who wins the majority seats in the Parliament will be come the Prime Minister.I still believe that Ranil would be the best choice for the country as capitalism and economism.

    Please read the Sri Lanka constitution and its amendments. I guess very few MPs would have read it. Could be bought cheap. Give it a try?

    Not puppet, President will be the head of state and the Prime Minister most likely to be the head of Government.Also, President will be responsible for national securities.

    Congrats Ranil. Expectations are very high, and its time to treat all citizens as Srilankans, rather than being called Sinhalese, Tamil, Muslims etc.We know you can build the bridges now.

    As a Tamil who supported My3, I want to firmly state that, the reason I and other Tamils supported My3, was not to ask for a separate state nor to ask for favours for our race ! ...We just want to live peacefully as one country with Sinhala and Muslim brothers and sisters, under a corruption free government. We want a government which would safeguard the rights of all people, treat everyone equally. Protect media and the right to express views. Practice transparency in government activities whilst respecting the privacy of public. Allow the judiciary and police force to operate autonomously. Good luck. Love and Peace !

    First, we must thank the Astrologer of the ex-President for giving "dead ropes" to advance the Elections by two years. We, the peace-loving Sri Lankans can now breath in our motherland and we can be rest assured that justice will prevail. All our good wishes to his Excellency the newly elected President of Sri Lanka and the internationally recognized Statesman and well experienced Prime Minister, Hon. Ranil Wickramasinghe.

    Another astrological saying came true: when PM last time, RW went to Tamilnadu and seen a yogi who public ally predicted that he would soon lose it (CBK sacked him later) and will come back years later to be a popular leader for long.

    CONGRATULATIONS, Sir. Your advice and experience are vital to run the proposed "MY3" Administration. Please ensure the number of Ministers do not exceed 25 - better, even less, as promised!
