    Some excuse to drag the parliament upto 7th Decemeber when the SC gives favourable judgement.

    Saradiel Friday, 23 November 2018 03:15 PM

    You mean expecting a favorable judgement I assume. I have the confidence in those 3 judges. Positive that the decision will go against MS. Lets hope for the best

    sona Friday, 23 November 2018 10:38 PM

    Dont worry. Ranjan said 3 judges are in favor of UNP.

    Cobra Friday, 23 November 2018 06:36 PM

    Why don't they have crocks at Diyanna for just such an occasion?

    Gayan Friday, 23 November 2018 11:07 AM

    Dissolve this silly parlinent. Let the people decide a clear majority to either side.

    lkboy Friday, 23 November 2018 02:19 PM

    Do not wrap this couple with the veneer of a democracy with bogus elections.

    joshua Friday, 23 November 2018 11:09 AM

    Hope you are referring to MR's gang. There is too much of a confusion as to who is the "go0vernment". In any case, if it MR's team, hope they will walk off from the earth.

    extinguish Friday, 23 November 2018 01:59 PM

    I will pray for this (i.e.: "walk off from the earth."

    mo Friday, 23 November 2018 11:12 AM

    Why is the purported govt of MR afraid of facing parliamentary vote.The true face has been proved andestablished.

    sach Friday, 23 November 2018 10:39 PM

    Why is western embassy government afraid of facing elections? The ultimate test in a democracy.

    ANTON Friday, 23 November 2018 11:17 AM

    NICEST LOOK OF THE PARLIAMENT I HAVE EVER SEEN DURING MY LIFETIME.

    Kanna Friday, 23 November 2018 02:08 PM

    Always I get to hear that opposition walk out but here its other way.!

    Ukkung Friday, 23 November 2018 02:28 PM

    Sira now resign. Mara now go home.

    MODA BURUWA Friday, 23 November 2018 04:17 PM

    OR let MARA and SIRA fight it out .

    HOLI Friday, 23 November 2018 02:47 PM

    To be charitable - at least this time they have walked out - without resorting to their usual dances and "holi" party.

    Democrat Friday, 23 November 2018 03:00 PM

    Irrespective of party , whats wrong about this whole issue is that Sri Lanka is supposed to be a democratic country with a parliamentary system. if there is a government selected by people at a general election to run for 4-5 years so be it, President cant change that just for his own wish. If we are going to work outside the constitution then the president can even appoint 225 of his own ministers whom he likes ! , so why should the people then be asked? so we are allowing this dangerous path by a president who knows nothing for sure

    sach Friday, 23 November 2018 10:43 PM

    This is an executive presidential system. The three arms of the governance judiciary, executive and legislature have checks and balances. When executive or judiciary go crazy the parliament can remove them. If the parliament go crazy, who removes it? Before 19A we had an escape route. Now we dont have one. An entire country is suffering from a crisis because a single person is afraid of elections and changed the constitution. (19Amednment)

    Lion Friday, 23 November 2018 03:02 PM

    Mahinda Rajapaksa has been marked as the shameless parliamentarian in history and he is a disgrace for the presidency.

    Grim Reaper Friday, 23 November 2018 06:40 PM

    All this is to avoid the gallows to self and family, no?

    sach Friday, 23 November 2018 10:43 PM

    These white slaves cant even construct a proper sentence. But laugh at bayyas..LOL

    Mandy Friday, 23 November 2018 03:06 PM

    MR team have given a walk over. Next step should be that MR should give up.

    REEZ Friday, 23 November 2018 03:06 PM

    Someone please explain me what is parliament select committee and what is the purpose of that.

    Bal Friday, 23 November 2018 03:08 PM

    All this muck up due one man's greed for next Preidential election to get support from his one time arch enemy. To what depths can a man stoop for a position.

    smn Friday, 23 November 2018 03:47 PM

    Well balanced democratic solution

    Azmi Friday, 23 November 2018 04:14 PM

    Government MPs walk out of Chamber! Because they don't have Majority to show

    Vasa Friday, 23 November 2018 04:15 PM

    Handipora Friday, 23 November 2018 04:24 PM

    What government? The Fake Government (TFG)

    Redflame Friday, 23 November 2018 04:28 PM

    Todays vote clearly showed who got the majority in Parliament. Sharia Law to DEMOCRACY to cut throat.

    Keeraipidi Friday, 23 November 2018 07:43 PM

    Eager to know if all the chairs are still there remaining. Not at all a problem for me if they walk out but without causing any further damage.

    civicminded Friday, 23 November 2018 10:53 PM

    Dear Editor, Government MPs??? I think it's best to report it in the most accurate way without demonstrating partisanship and confusing your readers as well. A group of SLPP MPs walked out. Whether they are govt is still to be determined - judging by their behaviour definitely not worthy of being in govt.
