    These jokers have no shame, if so they cannot do politics. The common man is the joker at the end.

    Voter Monday, 24 August 2015 09:14 PM

    What was the point of going through elections? We are getting screwed up by the day!

    jan Monday, 24 August 2015 03:41 PM

    At this rate why not then give MR also

    kondaya77 Monday, 24 August 2015 09:59 PM

    In Sri Lanka things never change, same old dirty laundry rejected by the people are brought back. What a shame!!

    smith Monday, 24 August 2015 12:43 PM

    Nihal Monday, 24 August 2015 04:25 PM

    I hope Petroleum ministry will be given to Susil Premajayantha to import Balance BALA PETROL he ordered some time back

    Christy Monday, 24 August 2015 11:32 PM

    Mr President,should not appoint people like SB and Dilan as cabinet ministers .Everyone knows how these chaps spoke at the election meetings.We need honest and sincere people and not rogues.This is not yahapalanaya, Mr President.

    V.J.Daniel Tuesday, 25 August 2015 09:54 AM

    Politicians r not clean at all,they only fool d people,but not all d time All r power hunger,they want to live like shahibs.Don,t you forget their is a power above,where you r answerable.

    Next time spare us the agony of having to choose candidates for our preference votes. Whatever we do not choose, finds its way in anyway.

    Rubert Monday, 24 August 2015 02:00 PM

    People heavily criticised the previous mega cabinet and now going to get..a mmmm,,, a mega cabinet.

    kcey Tuesday, 25 August 2015 03:17 AM

    why did we have an election first of all via DM Android App

    Daya Tuesday, 25 August 2015 11:09 AM

    A big thunder ball should hit Diyawanna so that we could get rid of all these jokers.

    Aza Rikz Monday, 24 August 2015 09:52 AM

    This is post election trauma. People did not vote for certain candidates due to one clear reason - they did not want them back in the parliament. Using the national list to get them in is like helping the losers win while people who thought they won, actually end up losing.

    shama Tuesday, 25 August 2015 11:30 AM

    It seems we the voters have been taken for a ride.MS and SLFP must realize that no body in the SLFP did anything to win. Those ministers who have been named only canvassed for MR.Now they are are back to ruining the country again. So much for our votes.

    Dimuth Monday, 24 August 2015 09:55 AM

    They keep changing parties like changing underpants. Sad for SL

    Yahapalanaya Monday, 24 August 2015 10:15 AM

    With characters like SB and Dilan better take the Waha Bothalaya .That would be the end of Yahaplanaya

    LogicalCitizen Monday, 24 August 2015 10:26 AM

    Only problem here is the defeated candidates by people brought through national list and making them cabinet ministers? At least UNP has a policy.

    Kapila Monday, 24 August 2015 02:24 PM

    Sirisena wants to keep these people on his side. Bad politics.

    Waco Monday, 24 August 2015 10:34 AM

    Arjuna and Rajitha too should given the ministeries.

    Lima Monday, 24 August 2015 10:41 AM

    SOME OF THE SAME ROGUES OF FORMER REGIME ARE BACK WITH MINISTRIES. NEXT ELECTION ALL WILL BE THROWN AWAY ALONG WITH SLFP LOSING HEAVILY , LIKE THAT OF 1977

    john Tuesday, 25 August 2015 07:11 AM

    Isnt this achcharu palanaya

    DR NASS Monday, 24 August 2015 10:42 AM

    it would be a jumbo cabinet with a large numbers of MPs. do we need this right now? JVP will be ready to launch its criticism from this point.

    Edmond jayasinghe Monday, 24 August 2015 02:33 PM

    Can the Prime minister run this government, having many rebellions on board, with a tiny majority. ?

    srilankan Monday, 24 August 2015 10:53 AM

    All the donkeys and monkeys are back to the seen...No value of peoples vote.

    Fair N Square Monday, 24 August 2015 07:53 PM

    ...errrrrr BUT JVP is party to this mess... they nominated a lost candidate who is Mr Handunetti.. YES a worthy man..BUT on principle he shouldnt have been accommodated ! WE the PEOPLE kicked out some IDIOTS out of office ONLY for them to be brought to parliament through the back door by the SLFP/UPFA and the JVP... in that way I salute the UNP.. and the UNP decision makers should NOT give ANY power to the losers atthe elections. THETY were voted out by the PEOPLE FOR A REASON... SO LET THE VOTERS WILL STAND !

    Nihal Amarasekera Monday, 24 August 2015 10:55 AM

    Looks ugly, but if the genuine aim is a stable Government to achieve achievements (for the real good of the country) so far not achieved, we have to excuse and live in hope.

    Fair N Square Monday, 24 August 2015 07:57 PM

    Its all a scam to hoodwink US the voters... all those who were booted out by the voters are IN parliament via the national list.. what a farce... who fooled whom? Politicians of course fooled US the VOTERS... NEXT elections do NOT vote for JVP or SLFP/UPFA... tech em a lesson... not that I am a RW supporter... but the better devil of the lot...
