    our alma mater nurtured us to stand up for what is right.. i am ashamed that I have to mention "our" alma-mater... disappointing.. distressing.

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 06:31 PM

    One does not need experience to contest any election! It is the will of the people that will decide his being elected to Parliament or not.

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 01:05 PM

    i wish he will be appointed Minister of FInance./Health or Education......to serve us. well.........lets vote for Namal..... :P

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 07:43 AM

    You will win with a record majority from Hambantota no doubt of it. After your father's term ends you are eligibl to contest the Presidential election and there are chances for you to become the youngest President of Sri Lanka and of the world. Do a very good job for the country to achieve this goal

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 07:46 AM

    Hope your Brothers are not like your Father's.....

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:36 PM

    sri lankan people will praise and worship rajapksha & Company today but tomorrow they will say he is a traitor and to put him in jail. that is sri lankan culture ( that is what happened to general SF) so keep your fingers crossed and enjoy the show. however , the sad part is, it is our money and lives who they are playing with..
    age, experience or qualification is not relevant for sri lankan politics (think about Dr. Mervyn Silva ha ha ha).. only thing that matters is your relationship with rajapakshe family.

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 07:49 AM

    god bless sri lanka!

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 07:49 AM

    Bit early. Anyway Congratulations !!!!

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 07:49 AM

    Too many Rajapakshe’s , family rule ?

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:39 PM

    Don't Discourage my dear NAMAL RAJAPAKSHA.

    The Excellent philosopher - Mahatha Ghandi once said,

    1. when you are going to do some new thing - People will laugh at you.

    2. If you continue disregarding them, - They will try to kill you

    3. If you tactfully evade the threats and successfully complete the task - Then the people will pay homage to you for ever.

    The most suitable example for unflinching courage is your father ----- His Excellency Doctor - Mahinda Rajapaksha.

    Just compare the above facts with the experiences, faced by your father.

    give my regards to Nugegogage. Ariyawansa De Silva too.
    From Badulla

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:40 PM

    sandun!! Before seven years BR might do a SF to Namal, like in Nepal. So your predictions may be wrong

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 07:55 AM

    At least one family is gonna be successful in our country. Good move

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:44 PM
