    If you were sincere about this, should have divulged this before the NCM. Sadly you have lost all credibility and cannot be trusted. You were given an amazing opportunity to perform, whilst you deserve some credit for a few good initiatives, overall you let down those that supported you and brought you into power. It’s time for you to go.

    Duminda Tuesday, 03 April 2018 07:06 PM

    This decision should have been taken bit earlier Mr PM. However late is better than never. Hopefully party gets a genuine outfit.

    Hari Mani Tuesday, 03 April 2018 07:20 PM

    Why April 30th? what about now? Buying time with your false promises and inaction?

    Oops Tuesday, 03 April 2018 07:57 PM

    Oops, this show that our dear and popular PM has lost confidence in the UNP backbenchers. The UNP members see this as a good opportunity to get rid of this dictator.

    Dhammika Tuesday, 03 April 2018 08:24 PM

    The general opinion among the masses is PM , RW is not a effective , honest leader . This opinion will never change and the ultimate looser will be the UNP at any election with RW as its leader . So for the betterment of the UNP and the country PLEASE resign and dont give promises and comments that you have already made as NONE has been delivered ! .

    After Tuesday, 03 April 2018 08:32 PM

    Final decision would be MS WOULD join with ŔWAnd Leave all s L f p s to MR SIDE

    Yet another desperate ploy to survive.

    Yahapala Tuesday, 03 April 2018 10:05 PM

    This power greedy man will never ever give up until UNP face the lanslide defete.

    UNP die-hard Tuesday, 03 April 2018 10:14 PM

    Another newspaper reported that RW had said today thatthe reforms in the Party including the leadership willtake place within the next few days!Credibility is all lost and now it appears that he is making these desperate statements to survive.

    Rasheed Wednesday, 04 April 2018 09:51 AM

    Whom is he cheating, he said that reform will be done very next day of the No Confidence Motion, but now end of April.

    Chandu Wednesday, 04 April 2018 09:58 AM

    Ohoma Yan!

    Eddie Ramanayake (Professor) Wednesday, 04 April 2018 10:22 AM

    I feel sorry for you putha. Why did you save and protect Mahinda and his family members, Weerawansa, Gamampilla, Mahinananda and Rohitha? Because of this now you are in the bad books. Don't be a slave to MR.

    Dev Wednesday, 04 April 2018 12:30 PM

    what do you mean protect? Rajapakshe family went through many hardships that even Prabakarans family didn't go through

    Lara Wednesday, 04 April 2018 12:32 PM

    You mean they brought a no confidence motion against their so called "protector"? Surely you don't have enough IQ level to be a Professor.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Wednesday, 04 April 2018 10:24 AM

    Ranil, the whole nation knows that you are very close to Rajapakshe family (close relation) hence you helped them to cover all the court cases and also still helping Mahendran your friend in Singapore. You should be thrown out today man.

    Peter Aponso Wednesday, 04 April 2018 10:28 AM

    As a PM you have not done ANYTHING for our country, but always making jolly trips all around the world out of public money. You have not given a single job for our younger generation, so what is the point of keeping you as our PM, please get out or we will have to march towards Temple trees soon.

    Bonda Ramasamy (Kottagalla) Wednesday, 04 April 2018 10:30 AM

    Sir, you promised to catch the thieves of former Mahinda Govt. ministers and deputy members. Nothing happened, you saved them and cheated us. Please get out now.

    Kanan Ganeshan M.R. (Hatton) Wednesday, 04 April 2018 10:32 AM

    Hereafter Tamils (Up-country) will never vote to UNP as they all rogues You are the one who ruined UNP.

    Geeth Shirantha Wednesday, 04 April 2018 12:31 PM

    Only effort to continue premier's power. Ultimately , he will delegate nominal powers to his youths.

    TROY Wednesday, 04 April 2018 12:43 PM

    It's time to hang your gloves and give an opportunity to a youngster to run the show.

    Huna Wednesday, 04 April 2018 01:30 PM

    Knowing him and his style of decision making ,we can expect more "Hora's" to get the crucial posts in the government
