    The heading should read "Fonseka to run for his life"!

    Good decision, it is better to trust the JVP than the cunning and selfish UNP. Good luck

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:26 AM

    it is not a healthy alliance withoout UNP

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:33 AM

    I think we need people like SF. Good Luck SF

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:35 AM

    The same UNP that spoke good of SF will now start slinging mud at him. Wait and see. This is the nature of our politicians.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:35 AM

    May be SF is planning to contest for a slot in Bogambara or Weliakde Prison.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:41 AM

    Is Anoma running the show when SF's fate is yet to be decided?

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:43 AM

    The country badly needs JVPers to have a control over the irregularities of any ruling party. A good move by the General to back them.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:52 AM

    JVP dosent have any options other than commit suicide.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:55 AM

    Well done SF, we need a person like you. May triple Gems protect you!

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:58 AM

    Monday, 22 February 2010 01:05 PM

    its a pity that the UNP members dont have the guts to stand up against their leadership for the sake of the country!!!

    Monday, 22 February 2010 01:43 PM

    Good news. We look forward to seeing you soon! God Bless you.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 02:14 PM

    not likely . Only if Jvp contests separately will the country know there real vote base tey will not then be able to hold governments to ransom

    Monday, 22 February 2010 02:45 PM

    Looses..... JVP will never get in to the parliament again.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 02:50 PM

    Could you please explain why a slot in Bogambara or Weliokade? Do you support an corruption, nepotism and waste? General Fonseka devoted his life for the good of the country.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 02:54 PM

    All my life our families voted UNP but this time it will be the JVP for the simple reason they are so stupid not to abandon Elephant. Even SLFP has abandoned their Hand

    Monday, 22 February 2010 02:54 PM

    MR IS RIGHT THIS MAN WANTS TO GAIN POWER HOOK OR BY CROOK HE WOULD FORM AN ALLIANCE WITH ANY PARTY BIG OR SMALL TO ACHIEVE THIS .

    Monday, 22 February 2010 03:00 PM

    Monday, 22 February 2010 09:31 AM

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:16 AM

    MR thought lesson no 1 To SF, now RW will teach him lesson 2 in politics and bring him down to earth both SF and his JVP buddies !!

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:20 AM

    Balance Opposition : -Some of the UNPers will vote this time to this team because of SF.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:21 AM

    I feel sorry for Arjuna, for backing the wrong horse!

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:25 AM

    JVP ,for the second time seems to have used SF to cover up depletion of their vote base.

    Good move General we as Srilankan need some strong person to counter attack thuggery and family politics

    Monday, 22 February 2010 06:05 PM

    A vote for General Sarath Fonseka, is a vote for democracy, good governance and justice!

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:31 AM

    Majority of UNP will vote SF. This time, Ranil will be humilated and will be forced to leave the UNP leadership!

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:40 AM

    Either UNF votes will split or SF will end up loosing his deposit!

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:43 AM

    Arjuna will be bat on as a last man from Gampaha,,,

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:46 AM
