    because the Supremacy of the Constitution and the role of Parliament in passing laws has diminished in SL!!! Now laws are passed on personal agenda's of a Family!!!

    No issues if the EPF is safe and country not bankrupt.

    Dear Govt. you have made the worst decision to tackle the majority that os the working population.

    Fayad Tuesday, 31 May 2011 03:29 AM

    Totally scarp the Private Sector Pension Scheme or make it optional

    Prabath Tuesday, 31 May 2011 03:42 AM

    Finally taken a Good decision, Why SL Govt doesn't think about a pension scheme like government servant paid ?

    CP Tuesday, 31 May 2011 03:53 AM

    Is this a temporary halt until remaining LG elections are over?

    sltk2004 Tuesday, 31 May 2011 04:01 AM

    Hmm.. so the decisions are taken by SLFP, and not by the government?

    a voter Tuesday, 31 May 2011 04:07 AM

    wait a minute... Is the central committee of SLFP or the cabinet which made the move?
    Is this news released just to calm the public?

    Good decision, before it's get more worst

    thalaya Monday, 30 May 2011 03:32 PM

    Wise move. This needs more studying before implemented. Workers need reassuring. They are worried about corruptions and state beuracracy.

    haramanis Tuesday, 31 May 2011 10:39 AM

    hooooooo, 3n 2ka kooooouuuu? VICTORY to the hard working people,thanks to JVP!

    Silva Monday, 30 May 2011 03:40 PM

    Why SLFP has to suspend this. Is the Government has to decide.

    Imran Monday, 30 May 2011 03:41 PM

    If we all come out demand for what we need, not the great hypocrites in this country need, every step would have been taken with democratic manner for sure.

    Paul Monday, 30 May 2011 03:55 PM

    Cheers to the brave FTZ workers and the other public and private sector employees who took part in protests and showed their strength which brought the government down on its knees.

    Shyamali Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:09 AM

    Give us our EPF money, without robbing it!

    suduloonuwa Monday, 30 May 2011 04:02 PM

    You can't fool the people everywhere at every time. A government forcing it's citizens to accept something is inhuman.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Monday, 30 May 2011 04:04 PM

    At last the People's Power succeeds! A good lesson for the government who boasted to introduce this daylight robbery with the power of their votes inside the parliament. Long live people power!

    Yehiya-Doha Wednesday, 01 June 2011 01:45 AM

    Opposition parliamentarian can buy easily. But workforce is more strong than UNP.

    Amal Perera Monday, 30 May 2011 04:03 PM

    How does the Central Committee of SLFP decide to suspend a government bill?

    DHA Monday, 30 May 2011 04:07 PM

    Ripping from employees and giving that back after years as pension scheme is a real dumb the time we turn 55 even EPF money will be like peanuts depending on the currency values.....

    Amanatha Tuesday, 31 May 2011 11:09 AM

    As usual, blow the trumpet and make a big showoff. Finally discard the issue

    Manel Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:45 AM

    Dont you know, now there is the Rajapassa Govt. and the SLFP which is a little bit more sensible.
