Only Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka was given the portfolio based on a scientific method at the Cabinet reshuffle, MP Namal Rajapaksa said today.
He said that the same people who called Minister Fonseka “Kalawadda” (Common Palm Civet) had given him the Wildlife Ministry.
He also said that Vijith Vijayamuni Soysa had given the portfolio of fisheries and aquatic resources development whereas he doesn’t have any access to sea .
“The Government said that it will choose the Cabinet members on a scientific basis. A separate committee should be appointed to formulate a scientific criteria to appoint cabinet minsters.”
He also said both the President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in future will say that the Cabinet was appointed by a committee and a separate committee will have to be appointed to determine the scientific selection process.
He said this exercise was a mere time consuming process in order to remain in power for a period of one and half year and it doesn’t serve any purpose to the masses.
He said that it was wrong that if the Government is attempting to mislead the public by changing faces and portfolios of the cabinet ministers. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)
I really don't like Nadal but this time I guess he is right. President and the PM have lost their head.

Yes. Similar method to what formula was used by your dad to appoint defence Secretary. Totally 'irrelavant'!

You should criticize anything that failed.Definitely not GR in that sense.
Dee Wednesday, 02 May 2018 03:18 PM
@siribiris. You referring to the guy who even sold (not long lease) the land which held his office building ? Only one thing I like about him - he never gave two hoots about any law! at least in Sri Lanka.

Empty people making empty comments. These are the future politicians of this country.

Of course doing things this way is certainly more scientific than white van abductions, murdering journalists, murdering rugger players, plundering poor people's wealth and hanging cutouts of maharaja on every lamp post.

Do these buffoons even know what scientific methods means?

A school boy yesteryear now a dollar billionaire corrrupt whose computer helped him to get a black coat struts about like an intellectual. He entered the PIM for a DOCTORAL programme and stopped after the defeat. If they they were in power he would have had the prefix Dr in front in the way he got the black coat by now

And you were given access to the Krish Residency project commissions in a not so scientific way...

is there no one in the government to investigate how this fool sat for the law exam and obtained 100 person marks for the paper law of contract.

As a General he protected the villagers from Tigers. Now the villagers urgently need protection form wild elephants.We hope he will do that scientifically in an organized manner. Which is an urgent matter which should be tackled professionally.

Anything notable done so far having ministries?
Sathees Wednesday, 02 May 2018 07:19 AM
Scientific, how to, as there is no educated ministers in our Gov.
Reader Wednesday, 02 May 2018 07:19 AM
Portfolios on scientific basis refers to combination of subjects and not looking at persons because if latter applies we will not find many suitable persons.

Watch how he will perform his duties, he is a man of less talk and more works, sit back Mr Namal and watch ..?
Sally Wednesday, 02 May 2018 10:03 AM
Your absolutely right. Prez
Lalith Wednesday, 02 May 2018 02:01 PM
Namal is right. On the same token, he will get the Ministry of Womens’ Affairs if and when they come back to power

The most scientific way is to chase out all current politicos from all of the parties and ban them from entering politics ever again and outsource the government to a reliable, honest country who can genuinely develop our nation. If we want to keep the current government, President should be the minister of agriculture (nothing else).

The wolf is crying it seems because the goat is getting vet.Tender politicians better to be silent, and watch and learn tillthey mature rather than messing up

Rhetoric of RELIEF for not appointing SF as Minister of Justice just like his Appachchi saying animals were running away in panic at SF's new appointment!
Geeth shirantha Thursday, 03 May 2018 01:14 PM
The government is kidding people . At least if the government can prevent from using such technical terms like scientific, good goverence etc.., it will be a great help for us.
