    Oops! The pageant has started or the "circus". I feel, it we like it or not time to vote for the JVP.

    daham Friday, 15 December 2017 02:06 PM

    JVP who painstakingly helped Ranil and Mayithree to come into power. So what is your point?

    JeffK Friday, 15 December 2017 03:29 PM

    @daham the point is to support JVP in the local and provincial elections and then vote again for the "common" candidate put forward by Ranil. They did it once.

    Tax Payers Money at Work.... When will SL develop politically. This Country needs nothing more than 30 ministers. President/PM... please love your country and its people and take decisions...

    Lord Wolfstein Friday, 15 December 2017 01:46 PM

    Germany with a population of more than 80 millions has 14 ministers and no deputy or state ministers.

    Liberal One Friday, 15 December 2017 03:30 PM

    If you find it dont forget to pass it to few of the yahapalana voters. They seem to have forgot what they voted for too.

    Aiyo Sirasena, Sira promised 30 Ministers, not more than 30 also, now nearly 100 ministers. Who said Ranil is clean man? Ranil robbed money from Central Bank, same now Sira doing the same. He is now Circus Lion.

    daham Friday, 15 December 2017 02:09 PM

    JVP should answer these questions now, since they took a leading role in the election campaign to bring this government into power.

    Libtard Friday, 15 December 2017 03:31 PM

    @daham according to JVP its Mahinda who helped form this government. I know funny logic but JVP bend anything to their advantage

    Lokka Friday, 15 December 2017 02:31 PM

    This is political bribery. Mr.Prrsident, you are wrong and reversal of yahapalanaya.

    Sanath Friday, 15 December 2017 03:46 PM

    Any way all are up to Dirty games,lets import a good common candidate for next election,since there is nobody in Sri Lanka

    Love Sri Lanka Friday, 15 December 2017 04:02 PM

    Please hand over this country back to the British OR Dutch OR Portuguese once again. i am sure we would still be doing much better then where we are NOW.

    Citizen Friday, 15 December 2017 04:27 PM

    Is this the Yahapalanaya people voted for???

    Christopher Gonawela Friday, 15 December 2017 04:46 PM

    Utter shame can we allow past mistakes to be made over again solely for personal gain and survival.Whats more pathetic is that these actions are made by person who came to power by promising change of the old system .

    AUSLANKA Friday, 15 December 2017 04:46 PM

    This action by current President proves that he is no better than the previous President in terms of corruption. This act is pure corruption and this action paves way to spend taxpayer money to new state ministers expense and undue waste.

    Mason Friday, 15 December 2017 05:42 PM

    On the one hand you talk of eradicating bribery and corruption and on the other you offer Ministry portfolios as "GIFT" to the ones who cross over. This is nothing but proliferating BRIBERY and CORRUPTION.

    nada Friday, 15 December 2017 05:56 PM

    The president showed his true colours by appointing his brother as the chairman of SLT

    Senewi Friday, 15 December 2017 06:27 PM

    Is this is not similar to the "sil redhi" case ?

    Wise Donkeyy Saturday, 16 December 2017 08:41 AM

    After all we are all Sri Lankans and there is no difference!
