    After everything he is trying to act like a saint.

    You have set fire to our country. Hope you rot in hell.

    malij Friday, 16 November 2018 04:06 PM

    Shame! Shame! Shame!!Sirisena go home!

    Dinesh Friday, 16 November 2018 08:22 PM

    This conflict is simple. RW is a high class person and MS is an agriculturist and does not belong to the Sri Lankan political elite. It is like oil and water they never mix. So one has to get rid of the other by any means necessary

    Even if you prorogue speaker won’t obey the rule of law as the jungle law supersedes the obligation

    bill Friday, 16 November 2018 04:03 PM

    You started all this. You unleashed the rabid dogs of JO

    public Friday, 16 November 2018 02:38 PM

    why is the fool still talking? Start impeachment proceedings!

    max Friday, 16 November 2018 02:38 PM

    We have a very biased Speaker. So, until the SC ruling finalized, better prorogue.

    Buddah Friday, 16 November 2018 03:27 PM

    So You Little Punk Posting a Comment Cause You know ENGLISH Typing ...You PUNK !

    MODA BURUWA Friday, 16 November 2018 03:27 PM

    The majority is with the UNP/UNF so what has the speaker got to do ? .

    ali Friday, 16 November 2018 04:05 PM

    You are supporting a set of bloody rabid dogs who does not even know how to behave let a lone ruling a country.

    Go to parliament and check your brain


    " He urged all Parliamentarians" - at least if you are capable of watching TV and understand what is happening you could well reign in (if you are not scared of not being in terra firma) your cahoots who are disrupting proceedings in parliament.

    Majority of heads in parliament with external elements vs the majority Sri Lanka's. Hold elections and get a fresh mandate without running away.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 16 November 2018 02:41 PM

    To avoid the Parliament getting Prorogued, you need to get prorogued. For that a majority vote needs to be for the UNF to stay on and Ranil needs to come back as PM, so that a buffoon like you will give ur resignation and leave. Thereafter, Ranil needs to elect Sajith as his predecessor in a few hours after you have vacated.

    Karu Friday, 16 November 2018 02:43 PM

    Sorry to say. Your good self sowed the seeds for this turmoil. Our Legislators have brought us shame and dishonour. May the triple gem save us from the current agony.

    Saradiel Friday, 16 November 2018 02:44 PM

    Learn from your mistakes and never repeat them.

    lvs Friday, 16 November 2018 02:44 PM

    Criminal Friday, 16 November 2018 02:45 PM

    Gamarala Friday, 16 November 2018 02:48 PM

    This shameless SOB is the greatest Tragedy this Country will ever come across. It is a fare Speculation to State This SOB will turn this Country Into another RWANDA-SYRIA. A Piece of Rural Sinhalese Human Garbage....Genocide in the name of Buddhism

    JK Hatton Friday, 16 November 2018 03:10 PM

    Dpad Friday, 16 November 2018 03:14 PM

    Moiez Friday, 16 November 2018 03:16 PM

    Why can't Mahinda and his gang behave like a human being, looks like all are mad dogs.I think the armed forces should step inside the parliament to go on the proceedings, otherwise you can't control of the unruly barbarians.

    MYN Friday, 16 November 2018 03:27 PM

    Please understand that you caused this mess. On behalf of the youth please let the past be. Fix this immediately and restore what was once a bright future for us.

    Gamalarala Friday, 16 November 2018 06:19 PM

    What can he fix, if he had that much brain, he wouldnt have done such a stupid thing in first place, now he can issue only empty statements like this sitting inside the house. Better he doesnt come out, people are damn angry for what he has done to this country.

    Rakki jeyavickrama Friday, 16 November 2018 03:37 PM

    Stupid President of 20th century, he has proved once again that he has the brain size of cashew nut. He got a luck to become president through UNP support. He is no.1 opportunist and a scumbag.
