UNP MP Earl Gunasekara says five more UNP parliamentarians are to extend their support to the government for the 18th amendment to the constitution when it is debated and voted on in Parliament this week.

At a previous media briefing it was announced that UNP Deputy General Secretary Lakshman Seneviratne, Earl Gunasekara and Manusha Nanayakkara will support the constitutional amendments.

Gunasekara says another five UNP MPs will extend their support to the government this week but declined to mention the names of those members.

He said a secret meeting was held to obtain the support of these UNP members and a joint press conference will be held on Wednesday after the vote in Parliament with the remaining five UNP members. (Daily Mirror online)

    People seeking for democracy in the party don't understand the meaning of the democracy by obliging the party majorities' decision. These are the people teaching democacy to us.

    He has enough money but he is going to strengthen the hands of MR like UNP deputy leader once did.

    Those who voted for UNP have been betrayed. These traitors must be given the Tree treatment.

    'Rats' deserting the 'sinking ship.' They went to Parliament on our votes and then ...

    Sri Lanka needs a constitution that prevents MPs from crossing over.

    Money talks! This means that 8 MPs have won jackpots! What a good lottery! Could some one suggests a name for this special lottery, meant for opposition members who want to crossover?

    Pawning the votes of people!

    A.Waragoda Monday, 06 September 2010 11:46 PM

    Go ahead and take the other wretched traitors with you!

    Kamiss Monday, 06 September 2010 11:51 PM

    This is the best time for the UNP to get rid of 'rats on the fence' and re-organize it as a strong opposition party!

    "Who cares for the public who voted us in - 'Make hay while the sun shines'" - MPs!

    These guys seem to wear frocks once they enter Parliament

    Angelo Monday, 06 September 2010 02:02 PM

    The most sensible people who puts country before self and party!!!

    Holman Monday, 06 September 2010 02:05 PM

    UNP is very weak as the main opposition party. Please somebody come forward and create a very strong opposition, otherwise it is 'one man show'.

    Ibnu Batuta Monday, 06 September 2010 02:35 PM

    MORE COWARDS.

    There should be a law to stop elected representatives from crossing over to other parties. It makes the voters look so stupid. They contest under one party and get there votes to be elected, then they desert the party that elected them; literally spitting on the voters. This should be made illegal, if they want to change their party, then they should vacate the post and seek re-election.

    Leslie Tuesday, 07 September 2010 05:53 AM

    Kamiss, you have said it right. UNP should get rid of the turn-coats and opportunists. Concentrate on re-building the party without further delay.
