    K. C. John Thursday, 06 December 2018 08:58 AM

    Of course he will deny ever saying it! His behaviour is totally inconsistent and his amnesia rampant!

    kamalhot1 Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:26 PM

    Then please push him to the wall, we love to see the result he says.

    Anthony Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:26 PM

    Premkumar Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:31 PM

    Mr. President, already you are pushed to the wall, not by anyone else but by yourself. Please realize that and resign for the countries wellbeing. Thank you

    ANTON Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:32 PM

    THAT IS WHAT THE WHOLE WORLD NEEDS TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR.

    ravin Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:36 PM

    Best you can do to the country and your own family. More you continue to manipulate less and less chances they have in living in our motherland peace fully.

    suren Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:40 PM

    I am waiting

    sunil Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:40 PM

    I would have believed this if it was Friday night announcement

    James Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:43 PM

    Best news heard since 26 October. However, Insane Sirisena is a liar. Didn't he say that MR had a plot to kill him, and he would ensure that action would be taken on MR Clan for their corruptions.

    Patriot Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:45 PM

    You supposed to have resigned on 26th Oct instead of changing PM. Now, first solve the problems created by you and then resign.

    Faz Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:47 PM

    Thats a very welcome news. Around 99.9% of the populations will be very pleased if you do it immediately without waiting till Friday. You will save our country from been ruined. God bless the Paddy Field owner who will be employing you.

    joshua Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:49 PM

    That's great news. Go away..... and please take your precious MR also with you. Good bye.

    channa Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:50 PM

    My Lord, please don't resign. You made our country a paradise with all your wisdom and far sighted vision. We never had a GREAT LEADER like your EXCELLENCY.

    Jaya Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:50 PM

    He is pushing himself to the wall. Yesterday he was trying his best make others feel good about him by blaming Ranil throughout the speech. Can we call him the Leader of Sri Lanka. I also feel sorry for the people who applauded him and encouraged him. POOR MAN!

    TONY Wednesday, 05 December 2018 04:51 PM

    AGAIN HE IS BLAIMING OTHERS. HE CUT HIS OWN GRAVE

    guda raja gammanpila Wednesday, 05 December 2018 05:16 PM

    he will never resign.people like this are so good at acting the role of the honest,principled stateman just to hoodwink the guillible masses .we have seen it done by Mara to the fullest extent and even a few others before him except Mr. DB wijetunga .people like this are simply not capable of leading honest and principled lives

    AZ Wednesday, 05 December 2018 05:17 PM

    He should have just stayed at the farms from day 1.. that's where he belongs!!

    Rio Ziegelaar Wednesday, 05 December 2018 07:43 PM

    Oh lets push him to the wall and then over the wall. Humpty Dumpty.

    Voter Wednesday, 05 December 2018 07:47 PM

    I think Maithri must be happy that there is no country he has not seen after becoming the President,so he has no regrets as his family too has seen the WORLD and is now ready to resign.

    janaka Wednesday, 05 December 2018 07:51 PM

    More than 62 million voters would be very happy about the bold decision.

    Independent Analyst Thursday, 06 December 2018 02:27 PM

    Specially at a crucial time like this, Presidents Statement(s) must come only from The President, or from a source of due authority and recognition. People should not accept statements from 3rd parties, specially when their bona-fides are questionable!
