    This seals the political fate (i.e. for hogh political office) of a large number of persons, in the government as well as the opposition.

    160 members and still debating? C'mon just get it done and over with.

    Reforms proposals of which the voters, and most probably the MPs at large are blissfully ignorant !! In 1978 people did not know what was coming! Now in 2010, people do not know what is coming or going!! What a lucky nation we are to undergo operations under general anaesthesia. Die without pain.

    What debate will hold forth in a dictatorship?

    suwimal Monday, 30 August 2010 09:34 AM

    Is a debate necessary? Because we all have to agree for obvious reasons.

    Concerned Monday, 30 August 2010 09:37 AM

    No need of debates. After all it will no serve any purpose. Just pass it and let that Suba anagathaya dawn on Sri Lankans.

    Finally the proposal on the reforms are approved by the cabinet and now two days have been fixed for debate.

    It is the duty of the parliamentarians to study the reforms well and go ahead if that would find a solution for better governance.

    Once you approve it will come to the people through a referendum I suppose.

    So let us hope that a good proposal have been made!! Do not panic. Country needs to develop let us all work towards a better tomorrow.

    Subs Anagathayak - Not on Sri Lanka but a very few Sri Lankans.

    It's only a fool who will expect anything out of this debate. Just going through the routine to stamp further authority over people - who were dumb and deaf when they voted and now justly rewarded.

    Ravi, Thambi, you must be living in some distant planet.

    Just don't waste Parliamentary time and food. Mr., Speaker can just sign the damn thing.

    Geronimo Monday, 30 August 2010 10:46 AM

    What a waste of time debating the issue. Just take a vote and be done with it. Nobody is surprised!

    But opposition wants a debate. So that they can talk about the amendments in the parliament.
