SLFP acting General Secretary Duminda Dissanayake today said the swearing-in of the Cabinet would not likely to happen on September 2, as scheduled earlier.

Addressing a news conference, he said a National Government should be formed through parliament and not through political parties.
He said the SLFP’s 64th convention would be held on September 2 in Polonnaruwa and said they had invited all party officials including President Maithripala Sirisena who is the party Chairman, to attend the event.

Meanwhile, former Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe told the media that Sri Lanka was today successfully winning over the international communities and commended the attempts taken by the new government in its foreign policy.

He said the country had lost an opportunity in 2009 to launch a credible domestic probe into alleged war crimes and added the assistance extended by the international community for a domestic probe should not be missed. (SD)

    AT MATARA NO. 2 AND 3 IN THE UNP WINNERS LIST ARE IN THE CABINET BUT NOT NO. 1. THAT IS UNFAIR.

    SIm Thursday, 27 August 2015 08:32 PM

    Form government without SLFP whose members are interested only in minestrial posts. If the government work for the welfare of the people the opposition will support.

    Nash Thursday, 27 August 2015 08:42 PM

    What a crime is this? I think this is not acceptable. What kind of a future can we expect for our country?

    Ajith Friday, 28 August 2015 10:53 AM

    Ranil delivered Colombo District to UNPSira delivered his district to UNP tooUNP now look after or baby sit Sara

    de silva Thursday, 27 August 2015 09:24 PM

    You are correct.They need only the posts that can make money for themselves

    kal Friday, 28 August 2015 11:52 AM

    As Ranjan says, we should not worry about ministerial postings or national list as most nominted from the past ruling party will end up in prison.

    Premalal Thursday, 27 August 2015 04:54 PM

    Now that the elections are over and done with it will be their show for the next 6 years. We, the voters will be irrelevant.

    Piyal Thursday, 27 August 2015 05:02 PM

    Mr. Samarasinghe ought to know that he is on his way to betray the war heroes who liberated us from terror. shameless.

    Darm Friday, 28 August 2015 06:29 AM

    This is the biggest joke since independence. A President and PM who cannot make their own cabinet! Take the Yahapalana ride! where is bandit queen?

    patriot (TM) Thursday, 27 August 2015 05:20 PM

    This reminded me, Colombo district result during the GE. Jayawewa Sri Lanka.

    de silva Friday, 28 August 2015 07:35 AM

    The politicians always betrayed us the voters,only for their own benefits.This time also

    Sikuru Thursday, 27 August 2015 06:00 PM

    UPFA is being greedy as usual the UNP should make a govt of their own or Sri Lanka will not be stable

    Patriot Friday, 28 August 2015 08:15 AM

    Is very disgusting to see those rejected politicians in the just concluded GE are also talking, no shame and just shit.

    Nihal Amarasekera Friday, 28 August 2015 08:24 AM

    Hopefully teething problems and everything will settle down to good governance. If not, teeth will have to end in their stomachs.

    Sikuru Friday, 28 August 2015 08:35 AM

    MR betrayed the war heroes in 2010 and took credit for himself

    Raizuh Langai Friday, 28 August 2015 08:48 AM

    What a shame. Our politicians are squabbling over ministerial portfolios. Are they really interested in the well being of the country or just positions? The future generations will judge on you as the ones who ruined our country. Stick to minimum number of ministries and get on with job given to you by the people of this country.If both major parties cant get to an agreement at least JVP should give a hand to a party which can govern with minimum number of ministers.

    de silva Thursday, 27 August 2015 06:12 PM

    Why is that because the two traitors from the estate community wants two minister posts.

    Mason Thursday, 27 August 2015 06:12 PM

    Was not Mahinda Samarasinghe who led the team to UN. He played a different tune then. It sounds different now.No wonder it is said that politicians cannot be trusted.

    Mason Thursday, 27 August 2015 06:17 PM

    Intend making it more bigger and broader !!!

    Perumal Friday, 28 August 2015 09:48 AM

    MR was bragging and very happy go to the electric chair on behalf of war heroes. So why back out from the opportunity of accepting the lesser punishment of going to a local prison?
