I have no issues talking with President Maithripala Sirisena and I can discuss any matter with him because we have mutual understanding, Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said.

He said so responding to Parliamentarian Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe during Parliament sessions to day.

    Dear Speaker,We understand that you have no issue in speaking to President and resolving the issue, which is already done many times though..But what agreement could we reach by talking to a mentally disturbed person. Shouldn't we bring in a monition to check the mental condition of President Sirisena and get a ruling that he is fit to be a president of a country.

    CBK sacked RW in 2004. Is she was also wrong

    Mandy Thursday, 29 November 2018 05:48 PM

    Surely you should know that CBK sacked RW before 19A which changed Prez status. Completely two different scenarios.

    Since when did speaker start taking instructions from a junior parliamentarian ? Let's not lower yourself to the bottom of the pit ... it is well below the recovery as it is.

    Mandy Thursday, 29 November 2018 01:08 PM

    You do not understand. This is at the request of My3 since he has to compromise and as Prez he is using an Agent/Confidante. and the Speaker knows it. This how complex negotiations start through a Broker.

    Then leave your ego aside and talk to him. After all, he is still the executive president of sri lanka.

    Dutugamuni Thursday, 29 November 2018 01:27 PM

    Who has the ego... The one who thinks he's a king just because he was born in Polonnaruwa or the Speaker who does what is absolutely right as per the sovereignty of this country

    You Can't talk scense to a Monkey !?? Huh!!

    sandy123 Thursday, 29 November 2018 12:36 PM

    Yes sir but president is guilty so he does not like to talk to you either

    BE CAREFUL - knowing what the fellow is - he could very well write a book about you - the third in the series (TRILOGY)

    Rajan Thursday, 29 November 2018 12:46 PM

    You can mutual respect, but don't trust him

    Better do something and conclude this matter but do not trust MS.

    upali Thursday, 29 November 2018 02:20 PM

    It seems that the speaker of the parliament if the executive ruler of this country.

    RATHER CONFUSING Thursday, 29 November 2018 03:56 PM

    " responding to Parliamentarian Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe during Parliament sessions to day." How come Wijeyadasa came into the picture. - we thought Wijedasa's group boycotted the sessions.

    Mandy Thursday, 29 November 2018 05:52 PM

    He is the messenger sent by MR MS faction to request Speaker to mett Prez so that MR MS can save face and not eat humble pie.

    Samson Thursday, 29 November 2018 04:08 PM

    Are you waiting for an auspicious time?

    M.O.A.Careem Thursday, 29 November 2018 06:29 PM
