Badulla District Parliamentarian Nimal Siripala de Silva said today UPFA would not hinder the common opposition’s 100-day programme and assured its support in carrying out it.


“We will not obstruct the common opposition’s 100-day programme. We hope they will carry out it as promised. People voted for Maithripala Sirisena because they approved their programme. We also expect to help him in carrying out it in matters that we can approve of,” he said.


Mr. de Silva said they would accept the new Prime Minister even though there were some constitutional issues in appointing him. “We are not going to raise any technical issues,” he added.


Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa said they would not allow the former president Mahinda Rajapaksa to stay at home and said they wanted him to engage in active politics.


“He is still the SLFP president and would continue to engage in active politics. If anyone is trying to remove him, we will not let that happen,” he said.(Santh Desmond)

    Your hindrance, intimidation, mud slinging is enough. Now just sit and watch without envy how the new team is working and implementing the 100 days program for the welfare of the people. Better to keep the fowl mouths shut until the general election.

    Mr. Wimal, sorry to say... people like u was the reason for this defeat. people didnt have the guts to express their political views.. tho the 30 years bloody war got ended, u guys left the people to live in a different fear. the excellency Mahinda Rajapakshe was one of the best leaders that Sri lanka had seen... no doubt about it... now accept that this country people needed a real change... and lets not step back. we have the gut feeling that MS and Ranil will do their best.. cus now they r commited. jayawewa.

Where is the shortest lived Minister of Health (Boru Givisum). All of them are examples of the thuppahi political culture that existed before 8 January and will be washed away in the next election - they will survive till the 23rd to get their pensions.B Epa

Make regulations to stop politician to change parties after wins/losses

Such columns and space could be utilized to educate our young people about real democracy and how the related institutions should work.
