    This is only a lame coverup. Alibaba and 40 thieves are very much in contention. My only hope is that our idiotic voters would not be fooled by fancy talk of these crooks.

    Jayan Monday, 13 July 2015 12:35 PM

    What about Basil, Namal, Nishantha Muthuhettigama, Wimal Weerawansa

    Gamey gona Monday, 13 July 2015 12:41 PM

    No point, there are lot more including Kehaliya and mahindananda, who may come on national list, the national list is exclusively for thugs, drug dealers, rapists and so on...

    What about others.Are they clean?

    nathan Monday, 13 July 2015 12:44 PM

    Thank god that at least these people were not given nominations.

    Gota Monday, 13 July 2015 12:48 PM

    How come Jonny, Aluthgamage, Premalal and Co; were nominated ?. 75% of UPFA nominees are undesiarables. So are about 20 % of the UNF ones.

    Can they enter in to politics under these conditions? if No that is great. Can they enter from National list? If yes that is Bad. Good that these fellows not coming to politics again , they have danced enough under the veil of MP. People of Sri Lanka Do not vote thugs,drug dealers, rapist . Because if they come our kids future will be in danger than ever

    Who created them over a period? How come the creator the Don got nominations.

    MS thinks this will fool us! KICK ALIBABA TO THE STREET so he can join these guys as well!

    If for our countrys bad luck Mara and his goons come into power these 4 will anyway come back bigger than they were. However upfa will loose around 350 thousand votes because of them being excluded.

    Sincere Monday, 13 July 2015 01:42 PM

    They were used extensively for their own purposes by their masters and then dumped like garbage. Good lesson for all of them.

    THE MAD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY ..........

    Nihal Amarasekera Monday, 13 July 2015 02:05 PM

    These are only a few of the undesirables. The rest will be defeated in style.

    Mevan Monday, 13 July 2015 02:09 PM

    Still the UPFA is not clean and it will be the duty of voters to clean it on the 17th.

    Susil,be aware as these goons might attack you....

    Amila Monday, 13 July 2015 11:35 AM

    You can not fool people. Other thieves got nominations.

    Damien Monday, 13 July 2015 02:51 PM

    This is a good move to keep gangsters away from politics

    Sincere Monday, 13 July 2015 12:03 PM

    He has mastered the theory of his boss to the letter.

    pls pls give...give to all the crooks the more the crooks the merrier.... via DM Android App

    Siva Monday, 13 July 2015 12:10 PM

    Not going to make any difference at all . You have already got plenty of others in your list ! That will be enough for us to decide !

    lkboy Monday, 13 July 2015 12:10 PM

    But some other accused people got nominations.

    C.K.Lankaputhra Monday, 13 July 2015 12:10 PM

    They are not as bad as their master. So then why?

    Yan Monday, 13 July 2015 03:28 PM

    Are you insane??

    Asokamala Monday, 13 July 2015 12:15 PM

    After giving nominations to MR it is immaterial whether any others are given or not. The sad thing is there are some who want them as leaders

    Dammika Monday, 13 July 2015 03:31 PM

    It is a good time to ask party secretaries that how many O/L failed are in their lists? Dear Media friends please investigate and publish for people to decide.

    Chaminda Monday, 13 July 2015 12:22 PM

    But Premalal Jayasekara has signed his nomination at the prison! Wife of Sarana has given nomination too, What a joke?

    Cynic Monday, 13 July 2015 12:25 PM

    But the king of rogues has got nominations.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Monday, 13 July 2015 12:26 PM

    Small mercies: nevertheless, can Susil honestly say that all others who got nominations from the UPFA, including the biggest rogue Ali Baba, are clean characters. Pure hypocrisy.

    lahiru Monday, 13 July 2015 03:44 PM

    yeah right.. sarana didnt get the nomination bt his wife does.. they think we are fools

    Bippity Boppity Boo Monday, 13 July 2015 12:31 PM

    Had MR won the last Presidential elections, all these fellows would have got nominations. This is just an eye wash to deceive the ignorant votes.

    AR Tuesday, 14 July 2015 11:35 AM

    Bad is going out, while the worst is in
