The Democratic People’s Front is also expected to get one national list slots which is to be filled by either DPF Leader Mano Ganesan or its General Secretary Dr. N. Kumarguruparan, according to party sources. (YP)

    Ranil is one of the few politicians who is not rascist. He was educated and lived in Colombo where there was no distinction among races. He is Sinhalese - but he mixed with Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims, Malays & Burghers - and the link language was mostly ENGLISH. The only way for national reconciliation is to have a link between all races - and English could perhaps be the link.

    If you look at the list of successful contestants - the UPFA is almost 100% Sinhala. How can we hope for national reconciliation.

    National list has become a savior of some good for nothing rather than intellectuals.

    Good idea.

    Whatever it is, it is not morally right to appoint defeated candidates as National List members. UNF should know better than that.
