    Piumi Wednesday, 19 August 2015 01:33 PM

    Yes of course Rosi should be in as a senior lady from Colombo to work with Hirunika. I remember Rosi with CB encouraged Hirunika to give the speech when they initially form Yahapalana government after coming from the UPFA.

    Dayawathie Wednesday, 19 August 2015 03:42 PM

    The result is good because no one got too much power.I hope at least now there is peace and prosperity in this beautiful island of ours.

    Some of these politicians have lost as a result of them supporting President Maithripala Sirisena after his election as the President of the country.

    DD Wednesday, 19 August 2015 11:06 AM

    This people were ok to some extent. But the others have managed to sneak into parliament yet again. After so much of publicity to vote wisely.

    Labby Wednesday, 19 August 2015 11:19 AM

    These are them that abandoned the UNP and joined the MR government for their personal benefits and privileges. Let them now languish at home.... serves them right.
