A letter, signed by more than 60 UPFA MPs calling for the appointment of the MP Dinesh Gunawardena as the Opposition Leader of Parliament replacing Nimal Siripala de Silva, has been handed over to Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa this afternoon.

These MPs claimed that the post should be handed over to an ally of the UPFA, since some SLFP Parliamentarians had accepted Ministerial portfolios in the government.

    This person is the eldest son of a great politician Mr Philip Gunawardena. Also if he is appointed it will be more weight for MR for his campaign in the forthcoming parliamentary election.

    This lunatic shouts and dose not talk to the microphone. Does not seem to know what new technology can do. Strepsils sale to soar. Nice!

    I think it is a good move. He is a better person of course.

    Upali,You are making a mistake. Dinesh is the THIRD son. Not the eldest. Prasanna is the eldest and then Indika.

    Dinesh deserves.

    Imminent split of SLFP is on the cards. Three corner fight ensue the impeding general election very interesting, but the country will plunge into deeper ocean of trouble, split groups merge to plunder and thrive through the suspended 19th Amendment. Long live the vandalism in disguise of Patriotism!

    See how much effort to put twist the democratic process of select the opposition leader, none of them want TNA for the opposition

    Man Wednesday, 08 April 2015 10:26 AM

    There you are. Everybody wants a Royalists. Either Ranil or Dinesh. No Nalandians like Nimal.

    Maya Wednesday, 08 April 2015 10:41 AM

    Hold in, if you have that many MPs to support, why not ask for PM post?

    Rajanram Tuesday, 07 April 2015 04:59 PM

    The people of Sri Lanka should have done more merit if Dinesh is to become at least opposition leader. It will be a honour. He is the bravest among all MPs.

    Narayan Tuesday, 07 April 2015 05:09 PM

    This country will never come out of racism. There is a good probability that most of these 60 MPs wanted Dinesh, just because he is a Sinhalese and they do not want TNA to be the opposition party. God save this country.

    Opp. Leader should be from a leading party and not from a party of which the total membership can be loaded into the back of Dimo Batta.
