The United States Senator Chris Van Hollen has written to President Maithripala Sirisena raising deep concerns about his decision to remove Sri Lanka's Prime Minister and the subsequent rejection of the two No-Confidence Motions (NCMs) in the Sri Lankan parliament on President's choice of replacement Mahinda Rajapaksa.

In the letter, he has urged the President to accept the results of the no-confidence motions in parliament, in accordance with the Sri Lankan constitution and the rule of law.

    If no law in the country, no regulations... tomorrow this will be the same treatment for all of us from these governing bodies. Why just defending somebody who doesn't bother about u and ur country. Pretty shame on u.

    Do we need anymore evidences to show UNP is an anti Lankan western puppet? If this is not undue intervention what is this?

    Obsolete senator who is clueless of the political outfit trying to influence. It is like one of our cheap minister trying his influence in a foreign country.

    Brian de Silva Thursday, 22 November 2018 08:18 PM

    Sit in a corner and m--bate, Mr. Senator. This is none of your business.

    Gayan Thursday, 22 November 2018 08:24 PM

    Ask him to locate Sri lanka on a map first.

    UNP Ranil collusion has political parties with anti American voter bases. JVP SLMC....

    Rogue Elephant Thursday, 22 November 2018 08:44 PM

    Mr Senator, Don't you have work other than poking your nose into other countries business? Better go to California and extinguish the fire or collect some bones....

    Dee Thursday, 22 November 2018 08:54 PM

    Guys, According to "Wiki" he is only a junior democratic senator, who appears to be a poodle of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. More interestingly he was in SL as a young teenager when his dad was the ambassador and mum the CIA agent!! From the contents of the letter it appears his "long-time friendship" is for an agenda rather than genuine. President should reply, if he bothers, "Thank you ..but no thanks"

    lion Friday, 23 November 2018 06:43 AM

    please insist the government of USA to impose travel ban to those who are ivoloved in this ubdemocratic act as you have done for the Mugabe regime.Srilankans are helpless in the present situation.
