    Please ask the Union leaders not to make any strike and also ask the media institution as well to play fair role at least for a one year addressing the nation after you take oath.

    MS must resign now for the good of the country. Investors would never come here again as long as there is an unsteady, unsound President at the helm.

    Sid Friday, 14 December 2018 09:27 PM

    This is like musical chairs

    Before impeachment takes place.....

    Dperera Friday, 14 December 2018 09:47 PM

    Now the question to ask; how President MS work with PM Ranil? President said over and over again he is not going to appoint RW as the PM. I am very concern about President's next step....

    Keeraipidi Saturday, 15 December 2018 09:03 AM

    No need to worry about the president anymore. As per the 19A AND with the respected judiciary - hats off - nothing there to be troubled by. I was expecting the worst 50 days ago and see how cool SL mastered this.

    Mas Karthini Saturday, 15 December 2018 09:22 AM

    Next is the MS to resign as he said he will not hold even an hour!

    lion Saturday, 15 December 2018 09:27 AM

    Our support in this issue was to uphold democracy and please keep in mind that we know very well what you have done to this country with your friends who are A grade rouges. At least at this stage be aware of your friends who applied raw shit in your name they turned your Mr clean name in to a stinking mess. Don’t rely on RK whose name is greatly tarnished beyond recovery after the bond scam. Never give him the finance ministry post allow Mangala to continue in that

    Ranil, At least one year, can you do something to undo harm done to the country during last 3 years:- GDP down- Tourism down- Cricket from top to bottom- No Subway/Light Rail- No new developments

    Jude Saturday, 15 December 2018 10:29 AM

    RW going back to work!! Yeah, Calling the Shots !! Hmmm!!

    Angoda Bakka Saturday, 15 December 2018 10:49 AM

    Sirisena is a DISGRACE to the Presidency. How many times he said, "I will not appoint Ranil as PM". If he has any self-respect or dignity, he must resign. But the truth is he has neither of the two.

    Jude Saturday, 15 December 2018 11:17 AM

    Self-respect or Dignity!!?? Huh, 'That Shipped has Sailed' !!!

    Muhannad Saturday, 15 December 2018 11:31 AM

    Angola. Angola. What is self respect. We are from polannaruwa not from respect family. We enjoy this. MR. and crowd

    Kamala Saturday, 15 December 2018 11:23 AM

    Best wishes to Hon. Ranil W. Implement unprecedented progress for welfare of the country, wipe off corruption from state funds and social harmony in the country. United UNP was a matter to admire.

    Samitha Saturday, 15 December 2018 12:02 PM

    Congratulations! Please act fast and fulfill the promises .

    janaka Saturday, 15 December 2018 12:29 PM

    MS Should resign immediately , But he wont he has got the taste and looking forward to visit round the world before he quits , Shameless Id oat from a Village called Polonnaruwa he has no self respect , He should be lucky that he got a chance to be the President because of Ranil. He was Not recognized when he was with MR , Now both can sit and have Hopper party every day.

    dickie bird Saturday, 15 December 2018 12:42 PM

    Look to the skies and spit.... That is what the UNP'ers or there supporters are doing with their inputs.It is RW who will have to work with the Prez. He is a UNP President.

    demos Saturday, 15 December 2018 01:14 PM

    This is a victory for democracy. This is Not a victory for RW or the UNP.RW as the PM has no time to waste. He needs to appoint a credible group of people as the new cabinet.People, especially UNPers do NOT want him to reappoint politicians who were involved in the bond scam.He should NOT be sorrounded by his usual gang of friends.

    AS Saturday, 15 December 2018 01:15 PM

    God bless Sri Lanka

    Raj Sathis Saturday, 15 December 2018 01:16 PM

    Highly motivated political Drama.
