UPFA MP Vasudeva Nanayakkara today said about 50 Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) MPs had signed a document to be submitted to the Speaker of the House requesting MP Dinesh Gunwardane be appointed as the Opposition Leader.

He said the signatures have been collected since Wednesday.

“The Parliamentarians want a new Opposition Leader to speak on behalf of them against the coalition government of the United National Party and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP),” he said.

MP Nanayakkara on Monday proposed MP Gunawardane to be appointed as the Opposition Leader claiming it was unethical for the SLFP to hold both Cabinet Ministerial posts as well as the position of the Opposition Leader.

Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa said on Tuesday he was also in a dilemma regarding the Opposition Leader’s post, and that he would give his ruling in the near future. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    All washed out politicians wanting someone to hang them to dry and among them crooks and murderers!!!

    Jeff Thursday, 26 March 2015 04:50 PM

    Anura (JVP) is a member of the National executive committee which is a part of the government. How can he be the opposition leader then

    kukula. Thursday, 26 March 2015 05:18 PM

    I have never been a JVP fan, but under the circumstances, yes I vote for MR Anura Kumara Dissanayeke for the post.

    ajit Thursday, 26 March 2015 05:33 PM

    good he can make another 25 lakhs

    Noway Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:08 PM

    PLEASE... ANYONE BUT UDAYA, WIMAL, DINESH, OR VASU!!!

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:25 PM

    The rightful place for leader of opposition needs to go to JVP as their opposition has been very articulate, scientific and well analyzed. I challenge Vasideva, Modawansa and bigot Dinesh to tell us what they have done for the past 10 years under Mahinda regime useful to this country other than being clowns and shameless shills to the same.

    de silva Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:31 PM

    What about Wimal weerawansa.He can talk rubbish better than your man

    Bubble Banda Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:33 PM

    Dinesh Gunawardene acting like a thug in his area. How could we allow such a person to hold a responsible position.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:37 PM

    How can a " ... Mudalalee" Dinesh sit on a most respectable chair.

    Desmond Jeromme Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:38 PM

    Dinesh is behind "Ethanol" history. Very soon CID will investigate him. He is not suitable for this position. Vasu are you crazy?

    Horri Jimonis Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:39 PM

    JVP Anura Kumara Dissanayake is the right candidate to sit in the Opposition Leaders Chair.

    Vijith Pieterz Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:41 PM

    Only one of the JVP member who could speak should sit in the opposition leaders chair. Not puppets like Dinesh or Weerawansa.

    Ganesha Friday, 27 March 2015 10:03 AM

    Who is Gunarwardana and what is his vote base .I have had respect to Vasu as a seasoned politicion now he has become number one chauvinist without voter base.Why Mahinda sends messages instead of appearing on the stage himself justifing his stance that he is a leader for only Sinhalese as he told he was defeated by Themala and Muslims .which is in supportive of him

    Desmond Jeromme Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:45 PM

    No other leader than Dissa (JVP) can hold the opposition leaders chair.

    Horri Jimonis Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:47 PM

    Vasu, better you fly a kite man. Who cares for you. You yourself a betrayer....

    Cheers Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:53 PM

    Good choice great experience keep it up

    sma Friday, 27 March 2015 02:56 PM

    Vasu, now it is time for you to take rest from politics. We had high regards for you but no more. You had betrayed all Sri Lankans.

    Sana Thursday, 26 March 2015 01:57 PM

    Dinesh is much much better than Siripala.

    willowsd Thursday, 26 March 2015 02:02 PM

    racism will be back in parliament?

    willowsd Thursday, 26 March 2015 02:03 PM

    If not for SLFP support none of these jokers would have won a parliament seat, so it has to be a SLFP opposition leader

    daily editor moda Thursday, 26 March 2015 02:23 PM

    Malu kadai muddalali FM bambalapitiya

    PROF Thursday, 26 March 2015 02:29 PM

    THE PM AND OPPOSITION LEADER WILL THEN BOTH BE FROM THE ROYAL COLLEGE GROUP OF 1960!!

    Man Thursday, 26 March 2015 02:30 PM

    Another Royalist in the forefront. (Dinesh)

    Liswom Thursday, 26 March 2015 02:32 PM

    If you look at the parliamentary debate during the last five years, one would no doubt agree Anura Kumara is the ideal candidate for this position. He has always fearlessly voiced on behalf of the people and richly deserves this position.

    Lima Thursday, 26 March 2015 02:36 PM

    VASU AND THE REST DO NOT KNOW TO DO A JOB , NO INCOME , THE LIVE ON OUR PIN-PADI , WHAT THE USE GIVING THEM MPS , WHO GAVE THEM
