Joint opposition MP Kumara Welgama said President Maithripala Sirisena had assured them he would consult the Attorney General and legal experts on the possibility of removing the Prime Minister.

The MP told the media after a discussion between the President and the JO that the President requested them to accept ministerial portfolios. “However we refused to do so,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    President must not forget Vijitha Rohana Wijemunis astrological prediction.

    Kumara Dharmarathne Friday, 16 February 2018 01:49 PM

    After removing PM, President himself should resign and pave the way for Former President,Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa. President should admit his own faults and leave the office respectfully.

    JO will support so that all cases against them can be destroyed/stopped. That is what they want before getting rid of u no ho

    Why is it so difficult if so many UNPers want to cross over as per an earlier news item?

    If the JO and My3 gets together the corrupt will never be sent behind bars. People voted against MR regime in 2015 expecting the crimes to be investigated and culprits be given necessary punishments. But RW with his government did the same by stealing the public money. If anyone is to say RW is Mr. Clean I will slap his face then and there. He is directly connected to the bond scam which was carried out under his ministry, under his government. If he genuinely didn't know about it, he is nothing but a fool. I only have hope in My3. But the guy lacks a backbone. He will probably team up with MR and our dreams of a corruption free Lanka will burst like soap bubbles.

    critical observer Friday, 16 February 2018 03:53 PM

    if you think My3 is clean. I feel sorry for you. His daughter , son and brothers are the biggest mafia now. worse than RW MR put together

    daham Friday, 16 February 2018 02:02 PM

    Didn't he appoint Ranil on january 08 illegally?

    simen Friday, 16 February 2018 02:09 PM

    At the moment we are under heavy foreign influences. For the safety and unity of the country we have to think wisely.Best thing is to form a government and run until elections.Rather than doing big programs continuation of the government is essential.Help of the JO is appreciated.

    If you guys refused Ministerial Portfolios the Sun will rise from West

    All in all shameless people and stupid voters in a banana republic.

    There is one unsolicited opinion published from an ex Chief Justice in this newspaper.

    thushitha Friday, 16 February 2018 02:43 PM

    was this meeting held over a hopper meal?

    ranga Friday, 16 February 2018 02:47 PM

    Don't know whether the president knows about the powers that an executive president has?

    Sim Friday, 16 February 2018 02:51 PM

    Allow RW to form a government with 30 ministers. My3 you try to clean SLFP first by throwing out the members who were rejected by the people

    Sincere Friday, 16 February 2018 02:52 PM

    Didn't he seek legal advice back in 2014 to collude with him to seek power after eating hoppers?

    Sincere Friday, 16 February 2018 02:52 PM

    Where, where is this old madam now? Not to be seen anywhere?

    ජනාධිපති තුමෝ, පසු ගිය සතියේ දීත් හොරුන් සමග පාළනය කරන්නේ නැතැයි අපට කී ඔබ මහින්ද සහ ඔහුගේ හොරු මුළ සමග එකතු වන්නට යනවාද? ඔබට "සිරිසේනෝ, සිරිසේනෝ" යි අඬ ගැසූ වීරවංශගේ හඬට ඔබ කීකරු වුනාද? ලැජ්ජා නැති කම ජනාධිපති කමටත් වඩා ලොකු වෙයිද?

    Sincere Friday, 16 February 2018 04:14 PM

    How can horu of last week be the same horu in this week in politics? Just think of what you heard from the stage back in 2015. You cant hear them today!

    persona4paz Friday, 16 February 2018 03:06 PM

    We only like to have Buddhism in the constitution. But, not in our living. Considering the number of great buddhist temples and the number of priest, we should be a great country. Unfortunately, the priest are busy doing politics and have no time to teach the pupil. What a failed country we are.

    vithura Friday, 16 February 2018 04:02 PM

    It is a delusion! Sri Lankans never have followed the teachings of Buddha!

    Samitha Friday, 16 February 2018 03:55 PM

    What is the reason behind to remove Prime Minister ?

    Wondering Friday, 16 February 2018 03:57 PM

    It can't be MR , MS or RW?Then who?? :O

    Haren Jayawardena Friday, 16 February 2018 04:41 PM

    Nothing to talk. Now work has to be done. Before working first get the luxury cars which the M P s are going sold in the auction and that money spend for building houses for the pooor . Give the MPs and Cabinet ministers a C90 bike or a maruti car and go to the village and work

    BEHIND BARS now looks like LIQUIOR BARS.

    Rohan Friday, 16 February 2018 05:10 PM

    Does anyone know where the architect who created 2015 Presidential candidate drama now? Is that madam still drunk and in the dance flow without knowing what's going on now?

    chacha Friday, 16 February 2018 05:13 PM

    If MR returns so does lawlessness.
