    Good. Vote in favour. Whether its MR or RW, Sri Lanka needs strong government. Who ever who wins should get read of losers.

    JVP is a clueless Party and shameless bunch of Jokers are in it.

    This not anything new...They have been always against the UNP and will never allow a UNP government to govern this country for long..Support, support and help bring back the abductors, the killers and those responsible for thousands of disappearances back to power....I am in no way saying the PM or the UNP is perfect....You will always be a losing party if you don't know what to support, when to support ..

    JVP knows that the no confidence motion cannot win time due to most of small party today decided to oppose it. so now it is fully clear that no confident motion definitely will be defeated. By knowing that they decided to vote in favor of it to get vote in next election. if it is going to be defeated , they definitely vote against to it.

    As in many countries, there should be a 5% hurdle for parties in elections.

    First withdraw all cases filed against joint opposition leaders.

    Hiran Wednesday, 04 April 2018 03:10 PM

    So JVP is going to vote for the No confidence motion put forward by the very same people whom the JVP has accused of corruption?

    abc Wednesday, 04 April 2018 04:10 PM

    Whichever party or cause the JVP votes for, they won't get more than 7 or 8 seats in parliament ever again. The JVP era is over.

    Sincere Wednesday, 04 April 2018 06:29 PM

    JVP has never been on a winning side.

    Ceylon Wednesday, 04 April 2018 08:02 PM

    This bankrupt party aĺways look for stupid outcome.

    JVP - The story of their life. Good analysis but ultimately wrong decision.
