    At least some democracy is there

    Speaker is from UNP, he is again wrong

    Of course, anything from the UNP is wrong, anything from the god-king is right.

    Why not just have a referendum on whether the people want to be ruled by the Rajapakse family forever ,no government no representation ,no parliament just the wisdom of the great man then the great family ..for some of you fools out there ,that seems to be all you want .To be slaves of these people forever .What is wrong with you .Why do you hate democracy so much ?

    So with speakers vote and JVP and TNA vote majority goes to UNP.

    Saradiel Friday, 23 November 2018 03:19 PM

    Which is fair. A minority government cannot have a majority in the PSC.

    Gayan Friday, 23 November 2018 11:08 AM

    Excellent democratic move by Speaker. Hat off to this great man.

    Santha Friday, 23 November 2018 11:19 AM

    A very reasonable allocation for the 12 posts

    Yahiya Friday, 23 November 2018 11:33 AM

    HE IS THE BEST SPEAKER.

    Pradeepan Friday, 23 November 2018 11:38 AM

    They should accept based on the composition of the parliament. If the composition of the parliament changes at the next election, they can expect the same favour from the opposition. The best thing to do would be to accept this allocation.

    Speaker again created another problem...UNP, TNA, JVP are one gang...how the UPFA to function???

    Keeraipidi Friday, 23 November 2018 09:29 PM

    Dysfunctions and malfunctions do belong to the Set of Funtions - have not proved this yet, but looking at SL I definitely will succeed

    Even when Mahinda group cannot prove majority, and not attending the Parliament, the Speaker was honorable in allocating 5 members equal to UNF. This is fair and the Speaker has acted very wisely.

    Charlie brown Saturday, 24 November 2018 01:32 PM

    I feel that those that really don't understand the workings of a democratic parliament,all these political solutions baffle them ...they just want to be Rajapakse slaves
