President Maithripala Sirisena promised me the post of Ambassador to Qatar, Businessman and Sri Lankan Labour Party Leader A.S.P Liyanage said today.

"The President first wanted to appoint me as a provincial governor but because there were no vacancies, he said he would appoint me as an Ambassador and that he would submit the proposal to the Parliamentary High Posts Committee for approval before confirming the appointment. The President even wished me for the New Year,” Mr. Liyanage said.

The post has remained vacant since Dr. W.M. Karunadasa resigned as Ambassador to Qatar.

Mr. Liyanage, a Rajapaksa stalwart, was a former High Commissioner to Nigeria. Mr. Liyanage had even promised the former president his luxury ‘peacock mansion’ in Rajagiriya but later withdrew his offer.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    What are his diplomatic qualifications?

    Perumal Wednesday, 04 January 2017 09:43 AM

    Aiyo, he is just an ASP. At least he must be a DIG to qualify for Ambassador.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 03 January 2017 03:57 PM

    This fellow is one of the 40 thieves belonging to the Ali Baba clan. If what he says is true, then Yahapalanaya is also scourged with those crooks.

    MR Tuesday, 03 January 2017 04:54 PM

    I wonder why he got this post. Is there no any qualified professional in Sri Lanka? This is a good example why educated qualified people leave this country.

    Selvyn Tuesday, 03 January 2017 05:21 PM

    Do we have a vacancy for the post of Ambassador in Hell?

    surasena Tuesday, 03 January 2017 08:50 PM

    What education??? It is reveal that over 75% of parliamentarians do not posses even O/L qualifications. This is an attempt to up-lift the Foreign service to the same level.

    sam silva Tuesday, 03 January 2017 09:33 PM

    He is the leader of the LIBERAL PartyCan he win ONE SEAT?What qualification does this joker have to be an ambassador?of course Under MR he was appointed the Ambassador in Nigeria

    VJ Tuesday, 03 January 2017 10:38 PM

    An ambassador is supposed to represent the people of a country. I think he is the right choice to represent Sri Lanka.
