Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and former president Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga are in the process of finalising the list of members from the two main parties to be assigned portfolios in the national unity government, party sources said yesterday.

It is learnt that the new ministers will take their oaths on Monday.

Some members have requested that they be assigned the same portfolios they held during the tenure of the 6-months old government while some others have requested that the subjects previously assigned to them be changed.(Kelum Bandara)

    After seeing the nomination members list of SLFP we cannot expect much hope that even relatively bearable SLFP members will be Ministers

    the would be candidate should be tested on whether "the battle of waterloo" took place during world war 1 or 2 !

    Education and higher have to be given most suitable one .

    Shirlene de Zilwa Sunday, 23 August 2015 05:46 PM

    People who demand money/commissions to get legitimate projects or work approved should not be given key portfolios.

    Sikuru Friday, 28 August 2015 06:06 PM

    @Waco how can it be the weakness of PM when he has nothing in SLFP?

    karthi Saturday, 22 August 2015 08:34 PM

    Maya Sunday, 23 August 2015 06:27 PM

    The mandate given to the party by people is analysed and organised by party officials authorised by their parties. What is your issue ?

    Boonda Sunday, 23 August 2015 06:32 PM

    Good and also divide the country into four, North, East, West and South and give equal power to all four. No issues, no complained and the national issue is solved by this way.

    Lasanth Saturday, 22 August 2015 08:39 PM

    CKB will mess up the whole thing as she did between 1994 to 2005

    Gp Saturday, 22 August 2015 08:48 PM

    Totally disagree that UPFA has nominated several MP on the national list, those who the people have rejected, Election Comissioner must reject this, if a MP was nomonated to be elected by the people and if such MP has failed to be considered by the people to representate them in parliment, so who are they going to representate, an utter wasteage of money! There are so may well qualified people than this roughs... Real disgrace, shameless people...

    SIR ..... OUR COLLEGE MOTTO HAS TO BE AMENDED "THE BEST WEAPON AGAINST AN ENEMY IS ANOTHER ENEMY"

    Waco Monday, 24 August 2015 12:20 PM

    Weakness of the President and the Prime Minister.

    Nakkiran Saturday, 22 August 2015 09:17 PM

    UNP AND SLFP BEFORE ELECTION CAT AND DOG , AFTER ELECTION HONEYMOON. 60 DAY AFTER HONEYMOON OVER.

    smith Monday, 24 August 2015 12:42 PM

    shamal Fernando Saturday, 22 August 2015 09:31 PM

    We hope that the experts will govern the ministry portfolios without any corruption. good governance concept will impose and country will rule with a good manner.

    Lankan007 Saturday, 22 August 2015 09:42 PM

    No finance minister for RK. Better Dr Harsha

    Sara Saturday, 22 August 2015 09:55 PM

    Did people give a mandate to CBK? funniest politics in the entire universe.

    Quintus Saturday, 22 August 2015 10:13 PM

    Careful about the crooked man RH of SLMC from Gambols ..he will shake his head for anything.?

    Nirmal Saturday, 22 August 2015 10:14 PM

    All the robbers must be salivating...

    REALPATRIAT Sunday, 23 August 2015 12:41 PM

    AN E.P . UPFA NATIONAL LIST MP HAS SHOWN HIS TRUE COLOR BEFORE HIS NAME WAS REGISTERED IMAGINE WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN HAPPENED IF UPFA HAD OBTAINED MINORITY IN PARLIAMENT ..... .. REMEMBER MAKING THEM LAW ABIDING IS A HERCULEAN TASK via DM Android App

    Bala Sunday, 23 August 2015 12:44 PM

    Oh why in Gods name get Chandrika involved - she cut Ranils throat when he was PM last time.

    chandradeva Saturday, 22 August 2015 10:28 PM

    Now Mango friends. After 2 years will see.

    Selvaratnam Sunday, 23 August 2015 01:01 PM

    TNA should join in the National Government and Hon.PM Ranil should invite them seriously to join the National Government. This will a stepping stone for national reconciliation.

    prasad Monday, 24 August 2015 08:34 AM

    Last year we had King Mahinda. Now we have Queen Chandrika ruling us. Queen Chandrika seems to be more crafty and powerful than King Mahinda. God bless Sri Lanka!

    Sarath Saturday, 22 August 2015 11:13 PM

    Under the 19a choosing the portfolios is vested in the P M and no assistance should be taken from any outsider who has no mandate to do so. If RW needs any assistance he should consult the President. Ranil is veterent enough to take the task as he is responsible to the parliament and CBS is also a discarded element in political arena. What shame

    Summa Sunday, 23 August 2015 01:46 PM

    Not Ravi - u have even spelt his name wrong - u do not know him enough.

    sach Saturday, 22 August 2015 11:43 PM

    Who is CBK to do that?

    Dayawathie Sunday, 23 August 2015 01:47 PM

    Have they got permission from Obama and Cameron to go ahead with this ?.

    kumaran Sunday, 23 August 2015 12:19 AM

    Why is CB involved?!!

    JBD Wednesday, 26 August 2015 01:58 PM

    Agree with you. I wonder whether this system is defined as YP.

    clueless Sunday, 23 August 2015 02:27 PM

    CBK is the new boss, like the supreme leader. Get use to that folks. She is the one who topple the king.

    Cheers Sunday, 23 August 2015 04:11 AM

    Ranil please take chandrika and Maithree to UNP so our party the opposition will be better off

    Sikuru Sunday, 23 August 2015 03:15 PM

    There is no party called the "Opposition"

    Sapu Sunday, 23 August 2015 03:17 PM

    Pls say something intelligent

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 04:35 AM

    I feel sorry for UNP.

    Pramod Fernando Sunday, 23 August 2015 03:29 PM

    If CBK can decide on all matters relating to appointing parliament members, why did we spend so much public money on election?

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 04:48 AM

    Ranil will very conveniently forget the election promises made during the election time.

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 05:00 AM

    MPs of UNP Party, if you need a Ministery, please go with bended knees to Chandrica.

    Waco Sunday, 23 August 2015 05:05 AM

    Mr.Ranil Wickramasinghe, you have never completed the full five year term as a Prime Minister. It will be the same story this time too, if you get Chandrica involved.

    A.W.A.Sathar. Sunday, 23 August 2015 06:33 AM

    It is very potential move to safe guard the Country. The Ministers must be person who concern about Nation Nationally and internationally.

    de silva Sunday, 23 August 2015 07:43 AM

    The Ministers who had portfolios before should allow them to continue.Otherwise the good work they have started,specially Patali Champika,Rajitha Senaratna,,Ravi Karunaratna will be in wain.
