The Joint Opposition today said several stalwarts of United National Party (UNP) had started signing for the No-Confidence Motion, which was to be brought against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.
Joint Opposition member MP Mahindananda Aluthgamage told a news conference that they would support for the No-Confidence Motion against Prime Minister Wickremesinghe and it would be presented in Parliament in the coming days.
“Earlier we have planned to bring a No-Confidence Motion against Prime Minister Wickremesinghe however it was delayed.
“We will sign for the No-Confidence Motion and would remove Prime Minister Wickremesinghe from his post,” he said.
He said the most significant fact was that powerful members attached to the UNP would support the No-Confidence Motion and added that they were currently signing it. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)
You guys are so scared to Ranil as very soon SF will be appointed as the Law and Order Minister and all of you (JO looters) will be caught and put in to Jail. correct...

Fishing in muddy waters at the cost of the county's stability

Mr Lawry, what stability you are talking? The existing administration is worse than stick in the mud and no body has to destabilize it any more. Get out from the shell, and from Feb 10, 2018, tribal political does not exist any more in this country. We, the voters are not fools any more!

The UNP seniors sign the no confidence motion is welcome by majority grassroot level UNP supports. This does not mean the UNP members are with the JO. The RW camp and MR camp are a bunch of rouges.

They will sign but at voting they will ensure it to fail. They are protected as long as Raniel is there as the leader. If they have a chance to defeat the government then they will vote.

Take the steps from bottom up. NC motion against RK first and RW followed by MS would be more appropriate.

First we want you to clear your case.After that we will listen to you
Gamaya Thursday, 01 March 2018 09:51 PM
Mr Aluth Village man, you dont understand as usual. The no confidence is at party (UNP) leadership level and not at govt level for PM. So dont smak your big lips and get excited.

Kage hari kare negala thamangi horakam tika wahaganna oya dengalilla. Forcec think that Daily Mirror has a share that is why they give prominance to these kind of news items.

DM can partner with Sirasa in these dirty efforts

Look who is talking? You will be behind bars soon, if justice prevails.

You are already expelled from Politics, the recent Local Govt. election proved it clearly as your guys lost very badly. Now the next step - be prepared to count the iron bars at Welikade.

UNP should change its leader, but not because of JO but to stregthen the UNP and good governamce.
TJ Friday, 02 March 2018 09:58 AM
Remove Ranil and appoint SF as Prime Minister. That will solve everyone's problems

Pity we do not have Gentleman Politicians who would step down for the sake of the Country or the Political Party.
