Is this so called "Yaha Palanaya"? He had just one media conference just before the election, pledged support to Maithree and see where he is now. The new president should be aware of these people. They are the ones who are responsible for the downfall of Mahinda also.

This is the first sign that political crossover of thieves and their corruption is going to continue. Why cannot there be a proper interview process and appoint a talented candidate? He has done few good movies and has supported a corrupted regime for more than a decade and get the SLRC president post????
