    Excellent move, actually both these frauds need to be rejected by the people, but then we have a majority of fools who vote for this type of sleezy characters.

    Good start. Most of them have no discipline and not fit to be there.

    Not just suspend, enroll them at a Montessori!

    At last some action to restore decorum of parliament. Hope in due course some others who disrupt parliament will suffer same fate.

    Worms are coming from mud shit. Utter filth are coming from dirty mouths. Those who are splitting filth at Parliament must thing twice because of School children and representing on behalf of people who are voting them.

    Ceylon Friday, 21 September 2018 01:51 PM

    Both are thugs.only that they learn .school education both not passed to grade ten involved violent thuggery acts to earn money and improve through politics.weerawansa joined jvp during it's killing period and other thug joined politics as mervin silva's thug.

    For two weeks they can continue to play to the gallery outside of Parliament - what a shame that we have such legislators who legislations affect all of us!

    Kumara Dharmarathne Friday, 21 September 2018 01:04 PM

    Suspending these guys for two weeks,four weeks would not do, because they know after two weeks or four weeks, they can do the same thing in the parliament,Prasanna Ranaweera was suspended earlier on too,but did not work,he violated the code of conduct again. If there is provision,please hand these idiots to police to be able to produce in court,so that court will reprimand them. They must be thinking parliament is a fish market for them to use abusive language.Mr. Speaker,please do something constructive. Thank you.

    Government missed the chance to silence WW by sentencing him and wife for their passport stories.By the way why there were so few MPs present in their seats Must do something about that too. A minimum of attendance must be introduced or expell them from parliament. via DM Android App

    Wise Donkey Friday, 21 September 2018 01:57 PM

    inti Friday, 21 September 2018 02:39 PM

    Ceylon Friday, 21 September 2018 08:07 PM

    SAM Friday, 21 September 2018 03:44 PM

    Please pass a 1 year punishment and put these fellows into cages when attending parliamentary sittings.

    Sanath Friday, 21 September 2018 04:35 PM

    Better to suspend for ever.

    Hubert Friday, 21 September 2018 04:37 PM

    Dhammika Saturday, 22 September 2018 10:36 AM

    By electing such ROWDIES shows the peoples mentality who vote and elect them to parliment.

    Gummay Baiyya Friday, 21 September 2018 09:29 PM

    Suspend the entire parliament and send all of them on the most expensive and full paid luxury holiday and cruise at tax payers expense. Then raise petrol, gas, bus tickets, essential food, medicine and even tax people for the air we breathe.
