    Are you hallucinating? MR destroyed our nation with his bunch of rapists and thugs.MS is bringing real development ,A hospital in Hambantota ,the Western province megapolis are just the beggining

    Henry Sunday, 12 April 2015 05:01 PM

    Looks a master plan is in action to split SLFP - and a well known character is running around mingling with both leading parties while showing at uninvited receptions too!

    Ram Sunday, 12 April 2015 06:53 AM

    MS will withdraw SLFP from UPFA and go alone with Hand symbol. MR can lead the UPFA with Dinesh, Weerawansa Nanyakkara and the crowd. This is the plan as I see it

    C.K.Lankaputhra Sunday, 12 April 2015 06:53 AM

    Mr. Anbu, U realized it only now. We vary well realized during last four years.

    billa Sunday, 12 April 2015 05:26 PM

    He will win, no warries-Fyi

    Cobra Sunday, 12 April 2015 07:03 AM

    Let him come and be defeated again-no better way to send him to oblivion!

    daily editor moda Sunday, 12 April 2015 07:12 AM

    Shame to MR. If you fail next is Provincial govt. and then municipal election.

    sira Sunday, 12 April 2015 05:34 PM

    Prediction MR will be next president again he will work with UNP game player m3 will have to go home

    Kalu Albert Sunday, 12 April 2015 05:49 PM

    Great news for Sri Lanka.

    dulan Sunday, 12 April 2015 07:26 AM

    anbu can you not see that MS knows this will never happen

    Perera Sunday, 12 April 2015 06:59 PM

    No use posting any message..DM never publish..

    Lawry Sunday, 12 April 2015 07:03 PM

    Ideal time for MR to cross over to the UNP. He wants a voter bank!

    Observer Sunday, 12 April 2015 08:47 AM

    I see UNP voters are highly worried about MR getting room within SLFP. Remember without MR there is no SLFP.

    Palra Sunday, 12 April 2015 10:12 AM

    If this happens, MR will be only an Opposition MP in the future Parliament. So, that will not happen.

    Mad-Hawa Saturday, 11 April 2015 09:52 PM

    Why give him chance when we consider billions of Rupees used his family benefits

    Ashan Rana Tuesday, 14 April 2015 02:18 AM

    Hopefully MR can reuse all the paraphernalia he had made for the presidential elections. Clocks/mugs etc! WOuld be a waste to have to redo those.

    hiran Gunawardena Saturday, 11 April 2015 10:39 PM

    MS clearly knows people are with MR. If he stand for election he is.sure favourite to be PM. It seems he realised that no point delaying in evitable via DM Android App

    Bala Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:10 PM

    MS only said that there is no bar according to law and it all depends on what UPFA want - MS cannot do anything. Simple explantion - nothing to get exceited or comment.

    dilip Saturday, 11 April 2015 10:53 PM

    UPFA or SLFP on their own will never win the elections with out Mr.Mahinda. My3 knows it well. He prefers to have a UPFA Government than a UNP.The latter will make his life very difficult if they win.

    kan Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:16 PM

    It looks like corrupt regime is better than unstable.

    Wesley-Kotte Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:27 PM

    Shame, Where are the sons , can you all advice MR to wait for 5 years and contest for next presidency in 2020 .

    ranga Saturday, 11 April 2015 11:11 PM

    Maithri calls CBK madam...you think he will has the making to call MR Mahinda???you are mistaken..

    ranga Saturday, 11 April 2015 11:13 PM

    5/6 comments above seems to be from minority(sorry for saying that) but sounds the same...wonder why???

    Mason Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:51 PM

    MR may contest as UPFA candidate, but SLFP will not fully back him. He is too shrewd a politician to enter the fray under such a risk.He will first try to down grade MS and CBK and cause SLFP to disintegrate. This could possibly happen with the disunity currently prevailing in the party, as MS and CBK are unable to give strong leadership.

    kabral Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:54 PM

    MR will not give any chance to contest by MS and MR will contest in new alliance and may win over 90 seats and SLFP can will less than 40 with out MR see people power specially sinhala

    kumara ekanayake Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:59 PM

    MR should really take a break for sake of our country

    SupiriMan Sunday, 12 April 2015 01:02 PM

    let MR keep the UPFA it is useless without the SLFP.MS and the SLFP should leave and let the thieves keep the UPFA

    Mack Sunday, 12 April 2015 01:08 PM

    mr wants to reconfirm the result of last election And he is going to take down the whole crew with him Once for all Slfp could have opted for new face , younger Person , but same captain and crooks end Up same sinking result Bring mr , this election he write the last Sentence for him self , the end

    arjuna ranawana Sunday, 12 April 2015 01:24 PM

    There is no barrier for next election . But you need to clear your name before the election

    Premalal Sunday, 12 April 2015 01:26 PM

    The voters should deliver their verdict on the whole family at the election.

    arjuna ranawana Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:08 AM

    . Yes there is no barrier from the party till file the case .

    Dulani Sunday, 12 April 2015 01:39 PM

    People want MR because Ranil cannot be trusted with the security of the nation. This is the truth. Otherwise who wants corrupt people to rule.

    Namal Perera Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:43 AM

    If a Company Executive is fired for mismanagement and corruption charges, no where in the World we have heard of such an individual trying his/her best to rejoin the same Company on a lower level. If the shameless, two time Ex President who amended the Constitution to stay in power for ever, gets kicked out on contesting the third term and wish to return to the Parliament on a lower level, he should give up all the privileges including security, he enjoys as a Ex President, to contest at the Parliamentary Elections.

    Roshan Tuesday, 14 April 2015 10:12 AM

    MS made severe allegations against the former regime under MR and he is well aware of all corruptions and billions robbed. In spite of his promisses to the masses to punish the thieves no action so far. Now he welcomes MR to contest the next election under SLFP. No doubt the international community will consider MS to be the biggest joker. Also no sensible person will come forward to invest in Sri Lanka. Hon. PM Ranil is only wasting his time and energy trying to build the economy of Sri Lanka.

    Jan Chandra Sunday, 12 April 2015 02:29 PM

    MR is our only saviour of this nation. The jokers in power has dragged the country down to pits.

    He is the most popular among mass. It is inevitable that he is going to come back again. So MS realise better let him contest and be the boss than be sorry. At least MS will get his old office job back, which he was good at.

    If he comes back we can see more white vans, hedging deals, missing journos, corrupt tenders, assaulted diplomats, unqualified diplomats, messy foreign policy and last but not least rule of family instead of rule of law.

    Blind Man Sunday, 12 April 2015 04:17 PM

    Nobody object MR to contest the next election. Before he does that he has to clear his name to the pulic. 1. His brother-in-laws corruption ixn Srilankan airlines.2.Basils money laundering. 3. Namala un paid helicopter rides. 4. Gothas war crimes and white van abduction. 5. Killing of Lasantha. 6. Expose all the names of ministers who made billions. Then he can come to politics.

    Anyone who is greedy for power and money will never be a compassionate leader.

    Layman Sunday, 12 April 2015 06:01 AM

    Good idea MY3 but when MR contests you can teach him a lesson in democracy by not unleashing what MR and goons unleashed on your President campaign. However you can allow him to bribe voters with those wall clocks and other items that MR had in stock.

    Hon. Mr. President.We all know that you are a down to earth person, but be cautious and careful in your moves, People are cruel not human when it comes to power, They are revengeful.

    Horri Jimonis Sunday, 12 April 2015 06:21 AM

    No need, why MS is not taking any action against him and calling him to contest. funny !!!

    Desmond Jeromme Sunday, 12 April 2015 06:27 AM

    Mr. President are you crazy? We thought you will give MR the due punishment for all his wrong doings and put him and his family behind bars, but now you are uttering something. Keep up your promise Sir.
