While rejecting State Minister A. H. M. Fowzie’s statement that the SLFP would abstain from voting for the No-Confidence Motion, two other SLFP State Ministers said they would vote in favour of the motion.

State Minister Lakshman Yapa Abeywardana and State Minister Dilan Perera said the SLFP decided to vote in favor of the No-Confidence Motion at a meeting held at Minister Mahinda Amaraweera’s residence.

It was reported that State Minister Fowzie had not attended the meeting.

    You all are one big bunch of traitors to the nation. For money you guys will do anything but just don't care of the public.

    Real story is they could have abstained or voted against the motion for bond money.

    One thing is, Dilan is consistent !! His loyalty is up for grabs!! Generally for highest bidder!!! To deal with Dilan, one need a strong back!! Because his biggest trait is backstabbing!! Just ask CBK or MR !!!

    Big noice, ultimately nothing will happen. People have forgotten all other national issues because of this No-Confidence Mortion.

    So why waste the tax payer money for a debate. Looks like whatever debated is of no value because they have decided to vote their way whatever said in parliament today. Sad state of affairs.

    Today MS will realise SLFP members in his cabinet are with whom.

    These two notorious opportunists are again for serious business. After porttuwas victory now their stance is very clear. MR knows what they want.

    Did they show the same enthusiasm when MR was plundering the country with them?

    Our country is messed up on style

    Dilan and Lakshman were rejected by the people. Their voice is not the voice of the people. Fowzie of course came through the National List.

    Beginning of the end of political journey of two corrupt politkkas crept through back door of Parliament.

    These hypocrites are finished, they have n future. You can't vote for no confidence motion against the Prime Minister and remain in the government. It looks like they want to join Mahinda in the future.
