UPFA MP and former Deputy Minister Sudarshini Fernandopulle is to be nominated to the Deputy Speaker’s post, sources close to the MP said today.

Informed sources said many in the UPFA had welcomed this move.

Former Deputy Speaker Tilanga Sumathiapla earlier claimed that President Maithripala Sirisena had wanted him to take over the post once again while there was also a report which said UPFA MP Angajan Ramanathan will be nominated to the post.

Ms. Fernandopulle would be the first women Deputy Speaker in the Parliamentary history of Sri Lanka in the event she is appointed to the post. (Yohan Perera)

    Good choice by UPFA because a doctor is much better for this post than a business man.

    Sunil Monday, 04 June 2018 05:41 AM

    Also, first Tamil to be appointed to the post

    She is a Sinhalese, married a Colombo Chetty

    She should have practiced medicine instead of coming to the parliament to enjoy power and privileges.

    Cobra Monday, 04 June 2018 10:09 AM

    Yes, but then she'd be a part of the GMOA!!!

    So the President wants Sumathipala to continue as the deputy speaker. He always talks about a clean government but the rotten, stinking smell of his appointees could be felt from several miles. Almost all are corrupted to the core and are well known swindlers, bribe takers, thieves

    There is always a first time. All vacant posts in any department should be filled up without undue delays. 50% of the time it's right choice. Unfortunately 50% of the time it could be the wrong choice. That's fate.

    Ex-Voter Monday, 04 June 2018 06:59 AM

    She can doctor the spoken words.

    Sunil Monday, 04 June 2018 07:24 AM

    A good decision by the SLFP.

    Does she make money from cricket?

    S.P.RAMKUMAR Monday, 04 June 2018 08:10 AM

    GOOD CHOICE, SHE ALWAYS GIVE HER VOICE FOR CHILDREN AND WOMEN.

    Joseph Monday, 04 June 2018 09:15 AM

    She voted for the No confidence motion . Thus she will not be neutral person to hold the post

    Cobra Monday, 04 June 2018 10:07 AM

    Yeah, she's been a bit outspoken lately!!!!!

    K. C. John Monday, 04 June 2018 01:17 PM

    Remember the collapse of Golden Key and the thousands who were driven to desperation and some even to their deaths? Don't forget why that happened!

    R.Anthony Monday, 04 June 2018 05:42 PM

    Eka malle poll.!!!!!!!!.Very poor choice

    dhanapala Tuesday, 05 June 2018 07:36 AM

    Forget political affiliation she is good choice. MPs should be wise in their voting.
