Cabinet Spokesman Rajitha Senaratne said today former president Mahinda Rajapaksa had asked Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe over the phone not to resign from the premiership.

He told the weekly Cabinet briefing that Mr. Rajapaksa had told the Premier that the UNP had obtained a certain percentage of votes and that a change of the Premiership was not necessary. (Sandun A. Jayasekara)

    Are you a relative of baila chakrawarthi late M.S. Fernando ?

    Scooby Doo Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:26 PM

    Hah ha so that he can gain more votes next time. Aiyo Rajitha. If this government did not take the result of LG polls as serious, coming back to power will be a dream.

    Johan Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:01 PM

    No problem he will jump to SLPP

    Mr Facts Thursday, 15 February 2018 05:07 PM

    Seems like MR already calling the shots. What a turn of event.

    chano Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:26 PM

    LMAO!!!! who is he to tell all this?? what a joke,, and when did even ranil say that he was going to quit?? loooolPolictics in srilanka has become an entertainment at its best....They should make a teli naatiya using our Parliament. Would break all these indian Serials!!!

    Camel Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:28 PM

    There is a reason for MR saying it

    Jaliya Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:59 PM

    Both are on deal.

    Missaka Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:29 PM

    I thought he was a Gobells's brother, now think he is Gobells's farther for sure!.

    ransam Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:27 PM

    His son Chathura is Gobells's grandfather

    Kumara Dharmarathne Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:30 PM

    How can MR decide that,it's very strange. Why MR took so long to say this? This is Sri Lanka politricks. Whoever,leads the government,people want the cut throat ministers to be out and the President to be professional.

    Johan Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:30 PM

    Only he can cover up their sins.

    Graham Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:35 PM

    Rajitha is well known for his lies....

    Deal Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:36 PM

    MR is very comfortable and will be able to achieve his objectives as long as RW is in power.

    Dr.Siri Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:37 PM

    The Protection is guaranteed now.

    Frustrated Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:44 PM

    MR knows that as far as RW is in power he is safe.

    Strategist Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:54 PM

    Not only he is safe but also he is very comfortable with enough security guys, drivers etc. Good life never ends...

    Saman Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:49 PM

    Deal is in progress.

    Veer Thursday, 15 February 2018 03:58 PM

    Lying is so natural to this man. These are the kind of lies people believed in 2015.

    Unchikun Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:03 PM

    We who voted for the swan want the whole cabinet dissolved. Bring back the glorious 60’s with a cabinet in f 16 ministers. At least we will know who our ministers are.

    SKIN Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:07 PM

    Looks like MR wants PM to remain until all the pending cases of MR and his family members put a side.

    Jaliya Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:14 PM

    It's a good thing that you are keeping in close contacts with the former autocrat and the clan ... just in case if the UNP ship sinks you can be welcomed on board the small watercraft of SLPP .... look out RW whom you have as friends.

    Thats why Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:24 PM

    you all did not arrest the big thieves. That's why you all got defeated

    Shihan Iqbal Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:26 PM

    Rajitha, we have now got to know your real face on how you started the Aluthgama conspiracy. Now we know who was behind all that and we had to lose our President MR.

    Sharon Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:45 PM

    Like Son.... like Father....

    ANTON Thursday, 15 February 2018 04:59 PM

    WE ALL KNOW THAT YOU USUALLY ASCOT LEADERS TO THE WASH ROOMS.

    Gamaya Thursday, 15 February 2018 05:27 PM

    Looks like I scrath your back and you scratch mine

    Buddhi Perera Thursday, 15 February 2018 05:28 PM

    This relationship started with carpeting of road opposite Srikotha.

    Prema Thursday, 15 February 2018 06:18 PM

    Man with a big mouth who only tells lies. No one takes him seriously just like John amaratunga.... they are both entertainers

    Citizen Thursday, 15 February 2018 06:30 PM

    MR's biggest asset is RW

    kumaran Thursday, 15 February 2018 06:50 PM

    No wonder the P.M will not allow the law to function against M.R and Co.!!

    dickie bird Friday, 16 February 2018 02:01 PM

    you all did not arrest the big thieves. Instead, Yahapalanaya out did them.
