    That is true, but prisident has the power lift off your position. Let see confidence Morrison of MR in parliament. That is all of your dream and keep the Oposisition leader post.

    Nobody has the power to remove RW, other than the Parlament. People should come out on the streets and protest against the Sirisena and the gang.

    delta Saturday, 27 October 2018 07:11 AM

    lalantha Saturday, 27 October 2018 07:33 AM

    Well said Ranil ,,stick to your guns,,,,economic mess was brought by Mahinda and Sirisena in previous Govt by unwanted debt burdens,,now blaming others for it..

    wasantha Saturday, 27 October 2018 07:38 AM

    Dont give in,,,tell speaker to have a vote in parliament and see who has the majority in parliament,,,Sirisena cant play the fool and appoint all and sundry who were rejected by teh people and who dont have a majority in parliament....who si Sirisena,,,he should be impeached for this act and sent home..

    bert Sunday, 28 October 2018 06:09 PM

    Samson Saturday, 27 October 2018 08:26 AM

    RW has demonstrated that he is a successful failure, whereas MR has proved success beyond any doubt.

    lalantha Saturday, 27 October 2018 08:37 AM

    Ranil is right,,,dont give into these cunning inefficient SLFP leaders who made us debt burdened and ruined the freedom and democracy of this country,,,MR like backboneless person taking oaths under Sirisena who defeated him without retiring in a decent manner,,people will teach them a lesson,,,

    wimalan Saturday, 27 October 2018 08:38 AM

    All the ape hamuduruwane who supported MR must be ashamed of support leadi ng to this undemocratic act,

    Lord Wolfstein Saturday, 27 October 2018 08:53 AM

    You can think of Ranil as you like, but he is the rightful Prime Minister and not this nefarious criminal.

    Land like no other.wonder in Asia. Everything happens wonderfully in our Sri Lanka

    Sad state of affairs. Maithree should never have done such low thing. He has projected that he is not capable of running the county. We all know the capacity of arrogance of RW. He should have stepped down and asked Sajith to take over the reigns. Even now

    raj Sunday, 28 October 2018 05:57 PM

    Mr.President has shown his true color to Sri Lankan including Tamils and the world. There is no need to prove that his good governance promises are tactic to convince people to vote for him. UN resolution is proven to be meaningless.
