PM will hold Law and Order only for a week

26 February 2018 06:21 am - 57     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will hold the Minister of Law and Order only for a week, informed sources said yesterday.

Prime Minister was appointed as the Minister of Law and Order previously held by Minister Sagala Ratnayake at the Cabinet reshuffle last afternoon.

Sources said a new Law and Order Minister will be appointed at the second round of the reshuffle.

Accordingly, there is a chance that a women MP who already holds a Cabinet ministry would be appointed to the post. (Yohan Perera)

    Low and ouder indeed by the looks of the dance called Yahapalanaya performed by the so called corruption buster My3 and the so called Mr Clean.

    I will tell one thing. If these two jokers continue like this, Mahinda and clan will come to power with at least 60% majority.

    how thieves to be catch by a thieve Monday, 26 February 2018 06:44 AM

    RW this is a joke again. SF is the man to catch thieves,

    Baba Monday, 26 February 2018 11:45 AM

    Yes, SF is the man, but he made his intensions clear by making so many remarks against the MR family. You need someone who is impartial and does not retaliate. All thieves should go behind bars. That is a remote possibility at the moment.

    Gayan Monday, 26 February 2018 12:29 PM

    HICOPE theif to catch other theives.

    critical observer Monday, 26 February 2018 12:55 PM

    SF has to clear his name first for the tender case involving his ex-Son-in-Law. Then he could be the Minister of L

    Does that mean SF will take over? Good show!

    Latest joke for the week in political circus in Sri Lanka. Hon. President

    malij Monday, 26 February 2018 07:14 AM

    The only person in the government with a backbone to implement law and order and take action against the thieves and murderers on both sides is Sarath Fonseka.

    Harry Monday, 26 February 2018 12:23 PM

    He will NEVER punish the Bond culprits and RK , but get him to go after MR and his family they are the biggest threat to the current government which was proved by the masses recently.

    A woman to do a man's job!

    Labby Monday, 26 February 2018 11:39 AM

    Who said chasing down fraudsters and catching thieves is a man's job? Even dogs do it. So what we need is someone with a good 'bite' not merely a loud bark.

    Harry Monday, 26 February 2018 12:27 PM

    But! But!! But!!! Getting Political culprits to books will be something like urinating by standing as men do it !!!

    Dhammika Monday, 26 February 2018 11:47 AM

    SF is the best for this job . RW is scared because he too will end up at Welikada is SF is given Law and Order portfolio.

    Dr.Siri Monday, 26 February 2018 08:14 AM

    SF is the ideal candidate as all others are corrupted

    Harry Monday, 26 February 2018 12:30 PM

    As did in the past at Presidential election, SF will be the Scapegoat for sins of UNP

    dave Monday, 26 February 2018 08:15 AM

    the pm is such an efficient person (lol) he will have everyone behind bars in a watch out rajapakses and everyone who has robbed our this includes ranils best pals as well.

    Harry Monday, 26 February 2018 12:35 PM

    Our struggle will continue until a most suitable person who has ability to control the entire law and order of SL is fixed for this post.Last three years Law and Order ministry has become a playground

    They want ministries just for the perks and bribes.

    That is more than enough to get BONG KINGS released. Also his BEST FRIEND is expected to appear before Cee Ay give evidence.

    Srilankan Monday, 26 February 2018 09:14 AM

    can we run a country without politicians??? is it possible in any constitution, please anyone enlighten me????? coz it seems we don't have any quality politicians left in this country until for another 100 years..... so its better to run the country with the required law enforcement and legal system........ if anyone knows logic and have knowledge on this subject please comment.

    Waco Monday, 26 February 2018 12:23 PM

    System introduced by Late Honarable Mr. J.R.Jayawardane - Executive President.

    srilankan Monday, 26 February 2018 03:39 PM

    since there are no feedback, I assume that we are will be governed by these politicians for the next few years... so I support all of them.... if you cant beat it..... join it....

    BV Monday, 26 February 2018 11:36 AM

    If it was just for a week why was Sagala not asked to continue for another week instead of making it look a comedy drama.

    redflame Monday, 26 February 2018 11:37 AM

    SF in the most suited person but all politicians are scared of him.

    Dhammika Monday, 26 February 2018 11:45 AM


    Darme Monday, 26 February 2018 11:47 AM

    Good ..rather than nominating or giving the position to that BRAILESS , STUPID , ARROGANT ,IDIOT SARATH FONSEKA..!

    Haramanis Monday, 26 February 2018 12:23 PM

    Everyone breathed a sigh of relief that "white flag" Fonseka was not appointed. He would have led us on a devil dance (thovil).Hope he is not being considered again

    Waco Monday, 26 February 2018 12:27 PM

    RW did you study at Royal in Polonnaruwa, along with My3. You can not be a product of Royal College Colombo.

    Jira Monday, 26 February 2018 02:15 PM

    why? British wanted men just like this to rule us

    BV Thursday, 01 March 2018 10:52 AM

    Please don't insult outstation schools.They have a much better output than Colombo schools.

    s. fernando Monday, 26 February 2018 01:10 PM

    Why not Ranjan as Law and Order minister?

    Sanath Monday, 26 February 2018 01:26 PM

    It looks that this govt has no initiative to catch the theives and have them punished.

    M.A.Waffa Monday, 26 February 2018 01:28 PM

    SF is the best and unblemished record person fit for this law and order post.

    Jira Monday, 26 February 2018 02:16 PM

    Do you know how many houses he has in Colombo?

    Mae Monday, 26 February 2018 01:30 PM

    Why for a week? To bury a few cases?

    Nadi Karunaratne Monday, 26 February 2018 02:11 PM

    Politicians expect to be held in awe and even call them selves excellencies but we the people hold them in contempt. All are lower than vermin.

    Gamage Monday, 26 February 2018 03:03 PM

    Whether he holds or some one else holds there is no difference. Because if someone else is holding it he will tell him always what to do.

    sach Monday, 26 February 2018 03:09 PM

    Ishan Monday, 26 February 2018 03:13 PM

    Rajapakse regime very safe now..SF is ideal man for this post.

    Buddhist Monday, 26 February 2018 04:31 PM

    Who is protecting Mahinda Rajapakse and his family its the Weak President Maithripala Sirisena.

    Samitha Tuesday, 27 February 2018 03:37 PM

    It was SF name proposed by UNP last week and why his nomination was not considered.

    Waco Wednesday, 28 February 2018 08:38 AM

    After this one week period, RW can go and join his friend Mahendran.
