    Mr.Ranil this is not the ideal time to go for a general election.Where will the govt.find another 6 Billion for the fights of politicians better if Gota can't work with you people better handover the Govt. to opposition another 8 to 9 months. Give the opposition leader's chair to Sajith.

    You need to step down now. You are destroying the party for your greed.

    Sri Lanka is at the same stage when it was elected since it failed to deliver any of the key promises made during the last election. UN resolution is a garbage since it did not deliver any justice to the victims. Mr.Sumanthiran and Mr.Sampanthan misled Tamils by making illusive promises. By doing so, they prevented criminals who committed crimes against humanity.

    The President-Elect should dissolve Parliament AT ONCE. Send this useless, selfish fossil and all his royals out, appoint a care-taker Cabinet for six months. Decide on elections on first pass the line.
