    Yes, to recommence the oligarchic rule in Sri Lanka where the "citizens" of this country will be come their "subjects". What feudalistic ideas you have. Pathetic!

    Glad to see the new Prez in his own attire reflecting he is a non political man of action and not of pretense.

    Great Man.Great Day for Sri Lanka.Basil Rajapaksa is the back bone for tremendous election victory.I have to thank Ali Sabry as well. What a impressive gentleman.He Doesn't menace his words,a straight shooter brilliant lawyer excellent orator.He defended Gota all the way through for his innocence.

    Mr.Ranil successfully handled Mr.Premadasa, who wanted to be the leader of the party. Now Ranil can stay as UNP leader without worrying. UNF lost the election because it failed to deliver its promises that include in punishing those who violated local and international laws before 2015

    Speech was not very unifying.. Tough and corruption and buddhist values?? I hope His Excellency will keep his pledge and has turned a new leaf.
