    Tamil Politicians leave the parliament at once as your lives may be in danger, it is a fight among the Sinhalese so let them sort out by the methods known to them best.

    Raj Thursday, 15 November 2018 11:32 AM

    Krish Thursday, 15 November 2018 02:14 PM

    Such a cheap and foolish Comment.. Definitely this is not from a Sri Lankan.. Get a life u A@

    Sri Lankan - Thamizh Thursday, 15 November 2018 03:56 PM

    People like you are the fundamental reason for the separation among the peaceful society of Sri Lankans. We recognize ourselves as Sri Lankan first and call us Sinhalese or Tamil, just to identify the language that we understand. If you cannot be a fellow Sri Lankan, please get out of the country and don't comment on our country issues!

    Tamil Lawyer! Tongue can create a firestorm without fuel and an igniting source. Guard your tongue .

    Sil Thursday, 15 November 2018 06:50 PM

    when there no such situation,this bloody lawyer brings in racism

    Dr Bala Thursday, 15 November 2018 10:25 PM

    Tamil Lawyer makes the absolute sense. Just imagine if any of the Tamil MPs had opened their mouth today in the Parliament,they would have been smashed up.

    max Thursday, 15 November 2018 11:01 AM

    A disgrace situation. Specially the UNP lawmakers' behaviors should be condemned vehemently.

    Sri lankan Thursday, 15 November 2018 11:50 AM

    So which decent SLFP/SLPP member threw the wastepaper basket at the Hon Speaker

    Citizen Thursday, 15 November 2018 12:35 PM

    Bayya talks...

    Mr. Observer Thursday, 15 November 2018 01:24 PM

    I see, your bayiyaness has reached it's max.

    MODA BURUWA Thursday, 15 November 2018 06:52 PM

    MAX is MAD to the MAX.

    Hon. Gonson Thursday, 15 November 2018 11:02 AM

    And this is the behaviour of our honourable people! We voters are bloody fools to believe that these honourable mutts would do any good to us... hahaha!!! Oh gosh. God save Sri Lanka.

    mazu Thursday, 15 November 2018 11:03 AM

    what is happening in parliment. nonsense democratic

    Chutti Thursday, 15 November 2018 11:06 AM

    Glad the speaker was wearing that helmet like wig. What goes around comes around.

    Voldy Thursday, 15 November 2018 11:31 AM

    That look of determination in the speakers face

    Jude Thursday, 15 November 2018 11:33 AM

    MS this is what you want!!?? You created mockery of the Constitution!! Now Chaos !!! County going backwards!!! "Behishanaya" in the horizon!!??

    Unchikun Thursday, 15 November 2018 11:51 AM

    The UNP, more specifically Ranil has to take the blame for this disgraceful event in Sri Lanka history. We had to vote for this president as the UNP leader was not confident of winning any election. It is time he quit politics and bring sanity to the nation.

    Siripala Thursday, 15 November 2018 12:29 PM

    Just arrived from outer space with wisdom

    Shan Thursday, 15 November 2018 11:51 AM

    Sirisena is responsible for this anarchic situation.

    Rafiq Thursday, 15 November 2018 01:03 PM

    Why leave out medamulana thug. Remember they both planned this.

    Marikkar Thursday, 15 November 2018 12:22 PM

    Sirisena proved that he is most suited to serve as a Grama Sevaka Niladaari... Mahinda proved that he is the mightiest stupid in terms of power hunger... Ranil proved that he is the best cunning fox, waiting for his portion to be freely served ..

    Zub Thursday, 15 November 2018 12:23 PM

    What has happened to democracy which MS promised? He's trying to be a Hitler of Polonnaruwa

    smartgent2001 Thursday, 15 November 2018 12:34 PM

    MS should take the blamed for the chaos in the parliament. This is what happens when a person with farmers' background is elected as the president. He doesn't know the laws of the country and the constitution which made him to create a havoc in the country. People are lost as to what is happening in the parliament and who is to lead the country.We are a mockery in the eyes of the world, and MS should tender his resignation immediately and go home and the parliament should elect an individual by vote as a caretaker President and immediately call for a Presidential election.

    nal Thursday, 15 November 2018 01:17 PM

    disagree with the wording of "farmers back ground" i think any person can became a president if they have qualification first paper plus experience. in this case MS have only experience i guess, this is why all these probs

    Kugan Thursday, 15 November 2018 01:40 PM

    Buddha's teaching and democracy is in wrong hands which ever you look at it it's being hi Jack

    Rajkumar Thursday, 15 November 2018 12:34 PM

    we need immediate end this crisis. Stop all your differences and think abut the future of our country.

    cheers Thursday, 15 November 2018 12:45 PM

    UNP why did not you invited US Embassy and your European to show what you guys are for real

    Ajith Thursday, 15 November 2018 12:53 PM

    Hey Pals, just be cool. No point in losing our temper. Let's watch this as a drama. Hopes for our country have been lost since 1948.

    Paul Thursday, 15 November 2018 01:16 PM

    I feel that in future speaker in Parliament should have sit in a cubical room made with iron rods so that he could do his job properly without any interruptions from unruly parliamentarians unlike today. I wish to ask from the government parliamentarians why they fear to go voice recording vote. Vote is a vote they be held in the parliament or out side because they like only vote in the general election. It is very unfair.

    ravi Thursday, 15 November 2018 01:51 PM

    Speaker was bias. This is the whole story.

    Ramu Thursday, 15 November 2018 01:53 PM

    These children of prostitutes behaving third grade, which is shame for all , they work just for their stomach only before come to power give thousand and one promises,after come to power squeeze people by increase tax, increasing price of oil,and necessary food items, steal banks, airline, commission on all projects but for them,pension,tax free vehicles,many more all these stop for them

    shanthapriya Thursday, 15 November 2018 01:57 PM

    Speaker acts the way he wantspresidents act the way he wantsPresent PM act the way he wantsFormer PM acts the way he wantsPeople act the way they wantin our country in sri lanka

    Grace Thursday, 15 November 2018 02:02 PM

    This is what happen when people elect country bumpkins as president who lacks proper education.

    Rasheed Thursday, 15 November 2018 02:05 PM

    In future they should appoint one from the underworld or Thugs as speaker.

    alice Thursday, 15 November 2018 02:23 PM

    God save the Speaker! It's a miracle he didn't suffer a heart attack!

    Ktsuda Thursday, 15 November 2018 02:23 PM

    First things first. Get rid of the Executive Presidency .Bring forth Anti defection laws

    Man from Sri Lanka Thursday, 15 November 2018 02:30 PM

    Law and Order should prevail in all walk of life that includes Parliament, State or Home. Constitution should be respected or SriLanka soon turn into banana republic and Kangaroo court will take over.M3

    Thursday, 15 November 2018 02:47 PM

    What things?

    Sotheby's Thursday, 15 November 2018 03:20 PM

    Need to get the paper basket. It's a treasure for an auction, guys.

    thiru Thursday, 15 November 2018 03:52 PM

    The Tamils accounting to the constitution of Sri Lanka, have never received at positive movements by any of these gouvernments, be in UNP, SLFP or any other parties. Tamils were used as voting machines by all parties. Today they are fighting among them and these has nothing to do for Tamils. When Tamils are recognised as a Nation on thier historical backgrounds as also the sinhalese people. Then we can think on a true democratical process. The Tamil politicians be it TNA or all other Tamil parties like Thandaman and Mano Ganesan.so let the sinhala people what they want, it is not rascism.

    Rasheed Thursday, 15 November 2018 04:21 PM

    These unruly MPs should be suspended from attending the Parliament.

    elmi Thursday, 15 November 2018 05:13 PM

    The IUSF was attacked verbally by the higher education minister as vagrants and hooligans. I wonder what he as a legislator thinks about his fellow legislators now? careful minister in what you say

    Vajira Thursday, 15 November 2018 06:50 PM

    Let SC decide the way forward. Decemebr 7th is not that far.
