This proposal has already been placed before the party’s parliamentary group.

Meanwhile, the UPFA has proposed the name of Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva as prime minister however, several UNP MPs want Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to continue in office. (Kelum Bandara)

    Sira is good to sleep and give his business cards to air hostesses. Karu is good in strengthening hands of others.

    This has been dragging for over a week now. Not a single is capable of finding a solution. Finish this off and get back to work.

    Ranil should continue in office. Only he can represent Sri Lanka internationally. None in the government or opposition are having the traits to gain respect from foreign countries. Certain traits are inborn. But he must implement all pledges of Jan 2015. The masterminds behind killings and frauds should be jailed and not officials who just followed instructions.

    Please keep Ranil as the PM should be the plea of JO. For the country though the instability will drag the economy down, people will suffer even more.
