Former president Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumarathunga yesterday reportedly told the SLFP seniors that under no circumstances would former president Mahinda Rajapaksa be made opposition leader.

She said a decision had already been taken by President Maithripala Sirisena and herself to appoint a young popular parliamentarian as Opposition Leader.
She also asked party seniors to not allow the defeated leader to destroy the party. (Anjula Mahika Weeraratne)

    Not been campaign leader did not stop MR from leading the election campaign. Once u allow a rat to come in he knows where to go

    good and wise move. via DM Android App

    Riz Sunday, 23 August 2015 06:08 PM

    pls somebody advise him, next time he will loose leadership at home too...ha ha

    Wildwine Saturday, 22 August 2015 08:23 PM

    isnt it something to be decided by the opposition parliamentarians I am not for MR becoming the opposition leader but what right does CBK has to decide that. All of a sudden she seems to be taking all the decisions. via DM iOS App

    Riz Sunday, 23 August 2015 06:11 PM

    I doubt he can win.

    Aba Jayasekera Sunday, 23 August 2015 09:29 AM

    Rajapakse should have realised before he sent Chandrika into the wilderness that "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned "

    ANTON Sunday, 23 August 2015 10:09 AM

    NO MADAM ...... NEXT TIME HE WILL APPLY FOR THE GRAAMA NILADAAREE POST (GS MAHATHTHAYA OR AARACHCHILA) IN MADAMOOLANA VILLAGE.

    Mojo Sunday, 23 August 2015 10:25 AM

    Maithripala and Duminda Dissanayake, Even during last 8 months she has powers in UNP and SLFP (not UPFA), She played key role in defeating MR at that time.

    mithra Saturday, 22 August 2015 08:51 PM

    Madam,you foresee the future very well. You have a very good political instinct than anybody else. MS and RW are too softhearted. That is a good human quality but should not be applied to serpents because they strike back in a deadly manner. President and PM should not keep State and its people at stake.

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 10:52 AM

    Mr.President, please be impartial, as you are the President of Sri Lanka.

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 10:55 AM

    Chandrica can organised her own party. But who is she to decide who the Leader of Oposition going to be?

    ara Saturday, 22 August 2015 09:12 PM

    parliament will decide that

    Ceylonese Sunday, 23 August 2015 11:04 AM

    She saved the country from going to the dogs

    Bandakki Saturday, 22 August 2015 09:36 PM

    How can she dictate slfp..this is not her possession. Time has come to form a new party which is lead by non-patoolayoos.

    Coconut Republic Sunday, 23 August 2015 11:24 AM

    How come when citizens rejected personnel are entering through the back door? People MUST VEHEMENTLY REJECT this back door appointments.

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 11:25 AM

    This statement of Chandrika , proves how weak the President and the Prime Minister are.

    Anil Samaratunga Sunday, 23 August 2015 11:33 AM

    CBK - you do not have authority to do so. Done maximum harm to SLFP for defeat and requested to vote for animal symbol (Elephant) but MR has won 95 seats along.

    Bala Saturday, 22 August 2015 09:55 PM

    MR and the four hijackers should not be allowed to wreck the SLFP. Without MR they will be nothing.

    pras Sunday, 23 August 2015 12:24 PM

    MR performed where as you failed. so shut up via DM Android App

    raj Saturday, 22 August 2015 10:16 PM

    Is that because he committed war crimes?

    CHA Saturday, 22 August 2015 10:18 PM

    Namal is suitable.

    Sinhala Kolla Sunday, 23 August 2015 12:38 PM

    Well no one wants MR back.

    Dingi Sunday, 23 August 2015 12:48 PM

    Madam, really you were BravoDingi

    modaya Saturday, 22 August 2015 11:08 PM

    MR --> President --> PM --> Opposition Leader --> MP --> Mayor --> Municipal Councilmen --> Town Councilmen In the name of money.

    Bala Sunday, 23 August 2015 01:50 PM

    As usual - her mouth has no brakes - just shooting it off to show how big she is.She has no say in this.

    ziyard Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:25 PM

    what about the deal mentioned in srilankamirror.com?dont allow the country to be in turmoil again....

    Aba Jayasekera Sunday, 23 August 2015 02:01 PM

    With all due respect to Chandrika, Maithri and Chandrika cannot decide on who the Leader of the Opposition will be. This must be decided by the largest number of MPs in the opposition.

    Bippity Boppity Boo Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:29 PM

    The Iron Lady of Sri Lanka. Make Sri Lanka proud. Well done madam and keep the mad man in check. Give it to him in instalments. Nice!!!

    sss Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:32 PM

    Madam I think you are also destroying the party

    Sana Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:33 PM

    Who are you to decide? Age vairaya coninues.

    Patriot Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:40 PM

    Hmm, to appoint a young popular parliamentarian as Opposition Leader, then I suppose is Prasanna Ranatunga since he is the next highest vote received after MR.:)

    MelDan Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:46 PM

    in what planet governing party choses the opposition leader via DM Android App

    Thiru Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:41 PM

    You are right. We should give chances for young people .

    patriot Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:42 PM

    Yes Mdm, we can see that day by day, you and My3 are destroying SLFP. Love to know who is the young popular parliamentarian of your choice, again by back door. sadu sadu.

    Nimal Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:50 PM

    ranjit demel Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:52 PM

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 02:51 PM

    Excellent comment.

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 02:54 PM

    Then who voted for MR?

    venom Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:55 PM

    MR was with faults but surely did more than her. She has no right to make these remarks.

    Harry Monday, 24 August 2015 02:16 PM

    Then change both persons appearing on the picture!

    Amila Saturday, 22 August 2015 05:59 PM

    MR already rejected that position. He needs power more than the opposition leaders power.

    Sundram Saturday, 22 August 2015 06:10 PM

    Stop it such stupid statement. Maithri

    haris Sunday, 23 August 2015 03:25 PM

    How come CBK has the powers to appoint both PM as well as Opposition Leader. What type of democracy is that. Mmmm may be Yahapalanaya!Haris

    REALPATRIAT Saturday, 22 August 2015 06:25 PM

    MAHINDAS THREE WISHES 1 )TO BECOME PRESIDENT (3RD TIME) 2) TO BECOME PRIME MINISTER 3) TO BECOME OPPOSITION LEADER . .ALL FLOWN WITH THE WIND. . WHY HIS CONSCIOUS WILL TELL HIM THE ANSWER . via DM Android App

    Harry Monday, 24 August 2015 02:26 PM

    What a joke! Can you name any such person who contested?

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 04:38 AM

    Who has given these powers to this woman.

    Riz Saturday, 22 August 2015 06:36 PM

    very good step, Keep MR and his family confined to medamulana or in jail.

    Gamini Sunday, 23 August 2015 06:15 AM

    Well said and brilliant work and keep it up for the better future of Sri lanka

    Dayan Saturday, 22 August 2015 07:03 PM

    What a madness how can appoint a SLFPer as the leader of the opposition when they join government. It should be given to TNA who are the next and it will help to confidence building too.

    Gayan Sunday, 23 August 2015 06:21 AM

    She should be mad. Then how come defeated MPs appointed in national list? Nothing but vengeance

    ANTON Saturday, 22 August 2015 07:07 PM

    DO NOT WORRY MADAM, MR WILL BE THE "GRAMA SEVAKA " (GS MAHATHTHAYA ) OF MADAMOOLALANA VILLAGE.

    Rama Sunday, 23 August 2015 06:54 AM

    We made a huge mistake by having elections if Chandrika is in charge of deciding who the opposition leader is

    de silva Saturday, 22 August 2015 07:20 PM

    Good move madam.A person who do not hear to the Chairman of the party must leave the party and allow others to work.Congratulations.

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 04:42 PM

    The atitude of MS towards MR was not right.

    Milton Saturday, 22 August 2015 07:28 PM

    MR would have won if not for the obstacles put on the path by CB and MS.

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 04:52 PM

    She is just another woman.

    Kalyani Saturday, 22 August 2015 07:30 PM

    The entire nation knows who is in the process of destroying the SLFP.

    Ravi Saturday, 22 August 2015 07:33 PM

    Well Said CBK..! MR will not only destroy the Party but our Lovely Paradise Island too..,

    ajan Saturday, 22 August 2015 07:38 PM

    Why not TNA ? As per the Constitution TNA will be get and as per the Good Government it will go to non Tamil party
