    Sajith Premadasa should be appointed as our PM, no sooner Ranil quits. Even SLFP will render the fullest support for this move.

    I do not agree Sajith should be the PM. What

    Send him off or chase him, but after that form up a parliament with only 30 Ministers and appoint Mahinda as PM.

    This is the last chance to remove Ranil, boys tie your boots and fight until he resigns or other-wise, throw him out.

    First Ranil, then next - Sirisena, come on guys.... we don't want both.

    The UNP is cleverly forcing the SLFP into a trap and earning the public sympathy.

    Rukshan Tuesday, 03 April 2018 01:52 PM

    The UNP knows that with its anti-Sri Lanka policies it cannot return to power easily. So it is crying, weeping and wallowing.

    What happened to the empty bravado of big mouth Rajitha?

    Mudali Tuesday, 03 April 2018 01:57 PM

    The SLFP-UNP union should continue without Ranil, Mangala, Rajitha, Chandrika and Malik.

    lalith Tuesday, 03 April 2018 03:14 PM

    It is the ministers of SLFP and president who should resign..Ranil should lead the country with a stick.

    Rasheed Tuesday, 03 April 2018 04:12 PM

    Well said, it is the President who did not approve SF for Law and Order Ministry.

    What a joke... the SLFP couldn't even beat the JVP this time and they are demanding. They should resign with Mr clean!
