The United National Party (UNP) said today that the country would prosper under President Mahinda Rajapakse’s leadership and a UNP led government as this would benefit both the UPFA and the UNP.

“A UPFA president and a UNP led government would be the best option for the country,” UNP MP for Galle District Gayantha Karunatilleke told journalists a short while ago.

He added that that a UNP led government with incumbent President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Executive would also minimize any undemocratic moves made by both parties. (YP)

    Very Correct Sir !.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:22 AM

    Remember what happened in the last time we had that setup ?

    Monday, 22 March 2010 12:01 PM

    MR is not a good option for the country with serious allegations of criminality and human rights violations accussations both locally and internationally.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:27 AM

    what????? :O then why the heck you supported SF?

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:30 AM

    Getting ready for a cross over?

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:04 PM

    This is POLITICS! You can't change the President now, so Gayantha can't say otherwise. Well said Gayantha. Some cannot understand non-violent verbal tactics.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:25 PM

    Ha ha ha ha ... what a joker!

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:43 AM

    Gosh no. Can't handle Mahinda Rajapakse or any Rajapakse for another day. Please dont even think about it.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:44 AM

    Why cant we have General Sarath Fonseka as President led by a UNP government, Sri Lanka will prosper .

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:44 AM

    ..But we saw what happened with CBK and UNP led Government!!

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:45 AM

    Isn't this a mixed message? Are you in cahoots or not?

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:46 AM

    THis man is mad....he must be admitted to Angoda immediately

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:47 AM

    Hik Hik .... !!!!

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:48 AM

    Surely, this is the best that can happen to this country just now. The only hope is that MR will not do what CBK did last time.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:49 AM

    It already is, as most of the ministers in the Government are from UNP. He can also join in, if he wants.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:51 AM

    He is also getting ready to strengthen the hand of the President just like his former colleagues.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:45 PM

    The sadness is that the voter still cannot understand the truth ...

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:52 AM

    UNP's last triumph!

    Monday, 22 March 2010 07:52 AM

    Nightmare and a DawalHeenayak

    Monday, 22 March 2010 12:31 PM

    So he is conceding the Presidential Election was fair ?? Is he waiting to crossover to MR side.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:01 AM

    Apples and Oranges people!

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:01 AM

    Yes! Can Ruin It All! Remove MR factor too

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:03 AM

    very good comments hope it will work

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:04 AM

    When you can't bite the hand then you kiss it. Karunasiri

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:08 AM

    Not the best option but a good one for the time being.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:17 AM

    I agree 100% with you Gayantha......and wish the same...

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:31 AM

    Providing a good attitude for the people and country eliminating hate, revenge and working together for national interest which will produce real "Ashcharya" in Asia. This is unbelievable.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 12:54 PM

    Ready for the jump ? already ?

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:31 AM

    Ofcause YES, if the general voters understand by what it means. First the UNP government should bring a no-confidence motion against dissolving the parliment after 2 yrs term. Can they do thaT?

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:40 AM

    Do Sri Lankan's have any other options and does UNP has any other options.

    Anyway it wil be like blind leading the blind.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 08:46 AM

    RW will have to take a good bath first

    Monday, 22 March 2010 09:08 AM

    100% agreed. wait until General comes out, he will own everyone!

    Monday, 22 March 2010 01:27 PM

    I also believe it . I vote for MR last time, but this time for RW, because I believe RW has good economic knowledge than UPFA guys

    Monday, 22 March 2010 09:16 AM

    This is a plan to curtail the rampant misuse of this government. Sounds Great for the country.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 09:29 AM

    what about SF??????

    Tuesday, 23 March 2010 10:25 PM

    Ranil will have to make a statement on this.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 09:33 AM

    There is another GEMBA

    Monday, 22 March 2010 09:37 AM

    At last I hope I hope something like this happens.
    If we are all patriots.
    GOD save our country.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 09:41 AM

    new twist... next minister under UPFA govt?

    Monday, 22 March 2010 09:42 AM

    or what you say if RW is the President and goverment is SLFP?

    Monday, 22 March 2010 09:44 AM

    UNP...UNP.... can’t be this desperate to make a statement like this aha...? Win the election rather than talking rubbish....

    Monday, 22 March 2010 09:46 AM

    Extremely funny! If that is the case, why did UNP tried to get Fonseka as the President?? Liars!

    Monday, 22 March 2010 10:15 AM

    true. a sensible comment that calls for compromise on both sides. well said indeed!

    Monday, 22 March 2010 10:18 AM

    Better Choice for the Politically disturbed Country would be a National Government with selected reppresentations???

    Monday, 22 March 2010 10:22 AM

    ery good option. Probably minimise corruption

    Monday, 22 March 2010 10:24 AM

    We welcome this idea for the sake of democracy.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 10:26 AM

    WE ALL HOPE UNP WILL COME INTO POWER.. PEOPLE SHOULD BE GIVEN A RELEIF AND BE UNITED

    Monday, 22 March 2010 10:37 AM

    Ha..ha..ha..ha..Nurse let me have my medicine now.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 10:41 AM

    MR-UNP wd be good but without sibling involvement.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 10:55 AM

    at least now u accept MR is the man for president. btw wat happend to all ur swan talks?? Have a backbone n atleast a bit of shame!

    Monday, 22 March 2010 11:02 AM

    So now UNP accepts Presiden MR as the legitimate President of Sri Lanka. It is surely Politricks.

    Monday, 22 March 2010 11:17 AM

    ... Bahahahahahahaha!

    Monday, 22 March 2010 11:37 AM
