UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe last evening said President Maithripala Sirisena should immediately resolve the present crisis based on the no confidence motion passed in Parliament yesterday.

Speaking to foreign journalists last evening he said, “One cannot wait for a day or two but should resolve it immediately as the country had already gone into a state of anarchy”.

Also he said his party and other allies are ready to prove its majority at any time and in every possible way. (Yohan Perera)

    Dear Ranil,We know you are from a privileged background where school was next day and University a few doors away. You would have never even seen the inside of a bus.Your career was easy due to Uncle Dickie Jayewardene who would ensured you fast tracked to Deputy Foreign Minister in your first entry to parliament.But we are ordinary citizens who go on the floor board of buses, drink plain tea and study under trees in the Colombo Public Library and eat the lunch our mother prepared at 4.30 AM. We are not jealous of you or envious of you as God has destined each one of us for a particular life style.But please ensure that you remove all the taxes on essential items for middle and poor class people and ensure a affordable living for us. Even if you are debt servicing is high, find innovative ways through long term loans and bonds and avoid taxing us to service the debts.Please also build MRT(mass rapid transit) so that we can travel easily to Colombo. Thanks, Sunil

    Well written. But is it correct to handover the reins to the person who has put the Nation in a debt trap. Billions was poured in Hambantota. We don't see much improvement in the quality of life in the people of that area.

    ConcernedCitizen Sunday, 18 November 2018 08:07 AM

    I see those comments came from bottom of your heart man. What you said is the truth and nothing but the truth.

    Truth Monday, 19 November 2018 08:58 AM

    Very true. RW has and his clan have failed to understand the suffering of ordinary people.

    podipuththa Saturday, 17 November 2018 07:12 PM

    No point of asking that culprit. he is the master minded person responsible to entire crisis.how can you expect he will solve it?he is playing double came and also he is thinking people will not realize it. that is the level of his knowledge.anyway country has to suffer for it's sin.

    concern Saturday, 17 November 2018 07:16 PM

    We all know. Say something that is more positive than beating around the bush.

    Manu Saturday, 17 November 2018 07:21 PM

    You made the mess by selling SL,not holding elections and not keeping the election promises. So prez was forced to take this step against you. You are responsible and you eave the place for some one else and the problems will be solved

    Don Saturday, 17 November 2018 07:30 PM

    How can he solve problems? He has not yet condemned the unruly thuggery behavior of his team of thugs.He could step down immediately without waiting another year.

    poor voter Saturday, 17 November 2018 07:37 PM

    Who ever incited these chain of issues were disgrace for the humanity at large.

    Ahmed Saturday, 17 November 2018 07:45 PM

    easy to say hard to do. just like what you have been doing in the past. you love to talk and boast without developing anything for this country. so many years wastes with useless talks

    johan Saturday, 17 November 2018 08:11 PM

    Yes he must temporarily occupy Speaker's Chair and solvethis problem because this was created by him with anulterior motive

    Hipo Saturday, 17 November 2018 08:21 PM

    Why dont you agree to a election and put the matter to rest sir?

    Sil Saturday, 17 November 2018 09:01 PM

    Prez announced that ,even new government would have to form, he is not going to appoint Ranil as its PM, why? he should specifically explain to public why he is not ready to select leader of main political party as the PM of country,

    nsathees Saturday, 17 November 2018 09:10 PM

    RW, MS don't want you as PM. Can you tell him how to solve this issue without you as PM. Or tell us . . .

    TYRREL IGNATIUS Saturday, 17 November 2018 10:24 PM

    GREETINGS ALL- AUBOWANHI I am from Sri-Lanka living in Canada. No POLITICS RE MY OPINION HERE.MY OWN OPINION CURRENT PRESIDENT SHOULD HAVE RESOLVED THE PARLIAMENT AND THEN CALL FOR A FRESH ELECTION. PRESIDENT DID THE WRONG THING BY REPLACING THE DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED PM TO FORCE AND RESIGN. HE ALSO MUST ACCEPT THE NO CONFIDENCE MOTION. THEN CALL FOR ELECTIONS. This will bring end the the POLITICAL UNWANTED DRAMA, WHICH IN TURN COUNTIES ECONOMIC PROGRESS SLOW. AND COUNTRIES REPUTATION IS TARNISHi would like to see a PEACEFUL SRI-LANKA AND FOR POLITICIANS TO GROW UP AND SHOW SOME MATURITY AND PROFESSIONALISM BOTH. .GOD BLESS SRI-LANKA AND HIS PEOPLE Amen.

    BUSHEL Sunday, 18 November 2018 07:16 AM

    NOT ONLY HE ALL WILL ACCEPT NCM. BUT HAS THE SPEAKER DONE IT IN LINE WITH CONSTITUTION.? PRESIDENT DISSOLVED AND GAVE DATES FOR ERECTIONS.. BUT THAT IS NOW IN COURTS. GOOD UCK TO UB

    Patriot Saturday, 17 November 2018 10:52 PM

    Ask your heart Mr. Ranil, did you guys follow the procedure? NOT AT ALL. Follow the procedure....the handing of the NCM to the Speaker, deciding on the date of the debate and vote should have been done in accordance with parliamentary Standing Orders and traditions.....No short cut on NCM please.

    Ukkuwa Saturday, 17 November 2018 11:28 PM

    Ranil himself has no mandate to push through his agenda when he was only one of the constituents in the government. It is famous for UNP members talk about the mandate Sirisena got but work on their own agenda discarding everybody else. Without Sirisena and SLFP there would not have been a government for RW to become the prime minister. If they are suggesting all powerful prime minister there should be term limits to that too.

    GH Saturday, 17 November 2018 11:34 PM

    The people's power is very important than Parliamentary power. so, everyone should agree to hold the election in a non-impartial manner.

    raj Saturday, 17 November 2018 11:52 PM

    Mr.Ranil has chosen the wrong person as a common candidate in the last election. As a result, now he is facing difficulties and Sri Lanka is facing crisis created by the so called common candidate.

    raj Saturday, 17 November 2018 11:55 PM

    MS was endorsed by TNA because TNA told Tamils that they vote for him, he will find justice to those victims of crimes against humanity. Unfortunately, MS has shown his true color. MS and other politicians in the South are using race card to win the election rather than focusing on important issues for ordinary citizens. Not only Tamils get fooled by these politicians but also Sinhalese too. Using race card is an easy way to win elections in the South.

    Keeraipidi Sunday, 18 November 2018 04:33 AM

    That was the time SL had a choice between either MR or anything. And you know the result, now.

    Nihal Sunday, 18 November 2018 04:07 AM

    MS ONCE YOU GOT THE PM POSITION YOU FORGOT ALL YOUR PAST FIRST YOU PROMOTE YOUR GAJAMITUROSANGAMAYA TO HIGHEST POSITIONS ROBBED THE CBSL TWICE ST BROAD DAY LIGHT AND AT LAST YOU WERE DIRECTLY IMMEDIATELY SACKED THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE REAPED WE ALL WERE BETRAYED BY YOU AND MS

    Cheers Sunday, 18 November 2018 06:16 AM

    Bobby Sydney Sunday, 18 November 2018 06:56 AM

    Hi Ranil, All because of you, you did not take action against MR and minsters for corruption, bribery and kiilings. You protected them, learn from Malaysian Prime Minster.You have to honest to the country not MR family.You absorbed all SLFP minsters so people did not see any difference before MR or at your times.You must look at the poor general public and improve their Stannard of living. When JR came to power after Srima, you know what he did, he had a economic plan and remove her civic rights.Have you ever condemned MR or his minsters or government officer or advice them what to do at this time.You are still occupying Temple trees so act like a prime minster . No favours other wise resign and go

    Jack Sunday, 18 November 2018 06:59 AM

    He is the mastermind and main culprit who created this crisis. Instead of developing country and economy, you all develop yours. Very soon, country will be bankrupt

    doc Sunday, 18 November 2018 07:57 AM

    Why did ranil need a common candidate???because he knows he cannot win but too greedy to give up leadership of the UNP...serves him right...UNP should find someone who has the guts to stand the election alone without foreign help...enough of this nonsense

    Lanka Sunday, 18 November 2018 08:19 AM

    What about the bond scam? You are protecting your robber friends not the country. This should be the sole reason to step down.
