    This guy couldn't handle the railway union strike. There are new trains, but did he had a vision to uplift the public transport? What does he think that the country should be in 10 years from now and after 50 years from now?

    It was a well known fact that MR denied any crucial political positions either to Nimal or to Sirisena while he was tin power. It is proved that MR's calculations were very correct regrading Sirisena. Now the Siripala will prove that MR is right, again.

    In the ideal world, we need a leader with vision to take Country forward, with gentleman qualities, acts against corruption, respect others, listen to opposition. Unfortunately, they are all dead and gone and some are not yet born.

    In order to have political stability, all UPFA/SLFP/UNP /SLPP leaders should resign and those blamed for bribery or corruption until proved should also resign and a caretaker government should be in place until elections are due in 2019/2020.

    These morons think that all the people of the country (not even the majority) are idiots. The UNP has 106 seats and need only another 7 seats to obtain a majority in Parliament which, they will get from the TNA and SLMC. The TNA will never vote for the racist policies of the SLFP.

    the president lost the election badly thrown to a third place, he must resign first and make way for fresh president election that will be better for the stability of the country.

    One news item says that the unity government will continue, but they are already out for Ranil's blood, proposing that Siripala de Silva should be the new PM. Is this how the Unity Government starts functioning, post elections !
