The United National Front (UNF) parliamentary group today decided to continue the unity government with some changes of portfolios and strategies, UNP General Secretary Kabir Hashim said today.

He told media personnel that the unity government would continue but focus on a new set of goals and objectives.

“We decided to change the composition of the government while being headed by President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

    We can now what's going to happen in the next two years now itself. Think its better all of including MR get together and finish this (country) off once and for all because none of you did anything for us other than looting our money and made your lives better.

    I think it's the right decision under the circumstances. We need political stability in order to complete the projects start ed and to attract the much required FDI's.

    Due to the bond scam EFP lost 26 billion on the bond scam. I don't care who rules I want my money back. It is the hard earned money of the private sector employees that you are looted. Need an answer for that first then decide who is going to rule.

    After SLPP won local election, Rupees became weak and we got more exchange rate. Thanks to SLPP for weakening the Rupees again. Now lets see how we can reduce the cost of living with weak Rupees.

    one more suggestion stop the doctors and railway strikes. These too contributed for your loss. Introduce a very effective mechanism . Shelve self pride and arrogance. If you loos Mara will be back with flying colors and that is the end of right thinking people of this country.

    "Unity government will focus on a new set of goals and objectives" to fool the people again for the next 2 years. Yes you said it but not all the people are fools or not all the time you can fool people Mr Kabir. (Kabir means BIG in Urdu and Arabic) So he is big for BULLSHIT.
