    Already 28 Billion rupees has vanished from foreign capital within last two weeks. This gong haraka has made people in the country and the foreign governments to laugh at us and make our lives difficult again.

    Wish army to take over.

    What a waste of Tax Payers money, with this two week illegal performance.

    Nabzta Friday, 09 November 2018 11:06 PM

    With a farmer making decisions like this without any consideration to the constitution, we're just going back in time, even further from the backward trajectory we were all ready heading. I just hope to god that we save this country.

    who grows your rice? Pigs?

    Gayan Friday, 09 November 2018 11:41 PM

    Go to the poll booth and vote who ever u like.

    valan Saturday, 10 November 2018 01:20 PM

    Please don't disrespect the farmers. Some of the SL politicians are a special kind with only selfish motives.

    khan Saturday, 10 November 2018 10:23 PM

    Samanmalee Friday, 09 November 2018 11:07 PM

    Unbelievable, he brings in a new government without a majority, he prorogues parliament to block any vote , and when the new ministers have been sworn in he dissolves parliament.What happened to democracy !

    Banda Friday, 09 November 2018 11:40 PM

    Democracy is an overused word created by the West,but origin is in the East,to fool the world.

    Valan Saturday, 10 November 2018 01:22 PM

    What will happen to the millions paid for crossover, will they keep it or have to return it?

    PonSiva Saturday, 10 November 2018 10:30 PM

    Democracy is not good for developing countries like Sri Lanka. We dictators like Stalin, Mao Tse Tung who made Russia

    Saman Friday, 09 November 2018 11:07 PM

    I doubt election is the answer. The composition will be the same. I mean, lots of new and old thieves and thugs. People should decide wisely.

    Sanjeewa Saturday, 10 November 2018 11:10 AM

    Elections is not the answer. The answer is legal action to invalidate the unconstitutional dissolution.

    Vimal Carlos Friday, 09 November 2018 11:08 PM

    Please. Invite the British back to rule us. We are better of to be ruled by the white man. We cant rule ourself in a Western styled multi enthic state at all.

    colonial slave Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:17 PM

    Election is the ultimate form of democracy. Great news for the people of Sri Lanka.

    abc Friday, 09 November 2018 11:29 PM

    Good news for slaves, in this case

    nihal Friday, 09 November 2018 11:09 PM

    God bless sri lanka...we are facing the danger of isolation, polarization and reaching a never returning point of anarchy. Even in the 30 years of war in the past we never experienced this kind of power hungry dogs in leadership and undemocratic situation in this country.

    citizen Friday, 09 November 2018 11:10 PM

    What happened MS you went against the constitution and finally for your fault we the public are to suffer, what about the majority you were boasting about and promising that you will not dissolve parliament. You are not eligible to be the President,

    rkumar752003 Friday, 09 November 2018 11:12 PM

    Second trump card. Now the game is over. Srilanka is heading back to 1980's. God save Srilanka.

    palle Friday, 09 November 2018 11:12 PM

    Great news for democracy. Let the people decide.

    Keeraipidi Friday, 09 November 2018 11:41 PM

    Why and when?The President must abide by the law as it is now. Don't you agree?

    Miktham Friday, 09 November 2018 11:13 PM

    Mandayan Friday, 09 November 2018 11:14 PM

    It is going to backfire on SLFP and MR very badly as the nation is angry.

    Gayan Friday, 09 November 2018 11:42 PM

    Saradiel Friday, 09 November 2018 11:21 PM

    He is worse than a mad dog on the loose. The entire nation including his supporters got to be very careful.

    DN Friday, 09 November 2018 11:21 PM

    This is against the constitution....

    Gayan Friday, 09 November 2018 11:44 PM

    Elections are the best form of democracy. Who is afraid of elections?

    Vinoth Friday, 09 November 2018 11:21 PM

    ks Friday, 09 November 2018 11:26 PM

    SL has become a joke in Asia, shameless politicians have no respect for democracy, people and the constitution...they are all selfish

    Gayan Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:15 AM

    Elections are the best form of democracy. We can all respect the constitution by voting. Joke will be on anyone who oppose an election.

    Jessica Friday, 09 November 2018 11:28 PM

    Who ever thought that innocent looking dude will behave like a tyrant. Using executive powers to the max. He earlier said he couldn't do anything 'cos RW was an obstacle. Now what? Oh god! Where is this going to end?

    Dr RIFAI .UK Friday, 09 November 2018 11:34 PM

    Thank you for avoiding blood bath.

    Anderson Friday, 09 November 2018 11:46 PM

    You idiot! Is this ur 2nd trump card??? I dont think it's a joke anymore, u r not fit to be president or a gramasevaka.

    Lion Sinhale Friday, 09 November 2018 11:49 PM

    Election is the most prominent thing in democracy. It is not a wastage...... Those coward and fake civil societies are now afraid of elections as people will throw away those neo liberalists and bring back patriots.......The democracy is at its peak.....

    vithura Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:21 AM

    Go on have election everyday and you will have achieved the pinnacle of democracy!!!

    Democrat Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:26 AM

    For that you can’t have elections every month at public’s expense and country’s instability. People elected parliament for 5 years. So dissolving a parliament before that is against democracy. It is dictatorship

    sanath Friday, 09 November 2018 11:49 PM

    Before the general election, we should have the presidential election, because now we are having an unconscious president. and also an unconstitutional government but

    sg Friday, 09 November 2018 11:56 PM

    Most best the momentum time..people will decide what they want.

    Hajendren Perinpam Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:15 AM

    Mr.Maithri is a worst president ever and it is the suicide of Maithri. Even god can not save the country.

    Democrat Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:22 AM

    I am scared of Friday nights now. Do not know what will be there when I wake up. Scared of my country and it’s democrazy looted by thieves

    Sils Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:28 AM

    The entire nation should ABSTAIN from voting until everything is done constitutionally, starting from reconvening parliament and inviting both RW and MR to show their majorities. In a democracy, the validity of the people's vote is subject to a constitution that has NOT been violated and NOT a constitution that has been violated.

    P Bemunuge Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:30 AM

    Let us send home for good Siresena farmer.

    Gayan Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:47 AM

    Irony is that farmers will decide who wins the forthcoming elections.

    P Bemunuge Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:42 AM

    Does the President, a farmer knows what he is talking about? You are not fit to be the President who cannot take a stand on issues that concerns the peoples' rights.

    P bemunuge Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:46 AM

    Your website is a joke. This is what you call the freedom of the press. My foot.

    DillonDP Saturday, 10 November 2018 11:04 AM

    Can the British take over our country back PLS

    Ajja Saturday, 10 November 2018 11:07 AM

    Is he the man who ran across naked at the Galle stadium recently.

    Athula Saturday, 10 November 2018 11:09 AM

    Earlier it was India that destroyed our nation and now it is China. Because we dont have straight thinking people.

    paul Saturday, 10 November 2018 11:10 AM

    What would happen to the country where the president is brainless?

    Samantha Saturday, 10 November 2018 12:22 PM

    Sirisena is in thirst of blood. This fellow need to send home.

    Dhammika Saturday, 10 November 2018 01:00 PM

    First MS said there is a CONSPIRACY to kill him and gota . Then he brings a BUTTERFLY story scene and appoints a new PM when there is a sitting PM . Appoints a cabinet of ministers and disolves it the NEXT DAY . What a BUNCH of JOkers in a CIRCUS while 21.7 million people are watching this pathetic DRAMA.

    nimal Saturday, 10 November 2018 08:43 PM

    all of these political leaders are the same. Mr.Srisena is another version of Mr.Rajapaksa. It can be observed by analyzing his speeches since he became the president.

    ra Saturday, 10 November 2018 08:45 PM

    Mr.Srisena promised Tamils to have investigation into war crimes during the presidential election by aligning with TNA. He also claimed that he had difference with MR. Can anyone believe his claim were genuine?

    rasi Saturday, 10 November 2018 09:18 PM

    This is the karma did to innocent tamil civilian killed in the cross fire by army and separatists. Everybody is selfish in this beautiful island,not the policitians.

    riham Saturday, 10 November 2018 11:23 PM

    All Hon Minister should be no pay till next election and parliament.
