    Thank you President! We want a dictator and a family to follow. We don't want 225 MPs. We don't want judiciary or commissions. We want a dynasty! We don't want freedom. Please destroy all of us!

    Samayawardena Tuesday, 22 September 2020 12:29 PM

    Yes we had the freedom at the end of the rule in April 2019.

    Critical Tuesday, 22 September 2020 12:16 PM

    First JR now MR. These two are for absoloute power only. People have no choice we have dance according to their music.

    Zaki Ashraf Tuesday, 22 September 2020 01:44 PM

    The 20A is the mandate of the President, not the Prime Minister, shows how little you SJB fanatics know about politics

    Lucifer Tuesday, 22 September 2020 05:50 PM

    @Critical. MR himself will ask his supporters to oppose twenty knowing he and MARA lineage will end in cremation!

    God only can save Sri Lanka from total anarchy.

    Sadly, Samayawardena doesn't know the difference between terrorism what nourished by Mahinda (paid the salaries of Saharans' and Hisbulla's campus) and freedom when wearing maroon sun glasses

    Muthutantri Fernando Tuesday, 22 September 2020 02:56 PM

    after 70 yrs, we are still struggling for a constitution. what a political system we have? Some are praising 20A, without knowing what it has.

    Ram Tuesday, 22 September 2020 03:36 PM

    harhR Tuesday, 22 September 2020 03:45 PM

    Only way is to persuade the SLFP mps to vote against it.

    Tr ur h Tuesday, 22 September 2020 05:36 PM

    Dual citizenship is utter bullshit. If you have dual citizenship why coming to our parliament? Wasi pathata goiyas

    Nuwan Tuesday, 22 September 2020 05:38 PM

    It's a system that is oscillating

    Shehan Tuesday, 22 September 2020 05:48 PM
