    No he only stole around 10 billion. He is an innocent baby no.

    Cobra Wednesday, 29 June 2016 07:43 PM

    How about Bandula? Kill two birds with one stone and all that, eh?

    Mr Facts Wednesday, 29 June 2016 09:06 PM

    Many hours have been passed since your announcement President. Where's the appointment? I guess PM won the battle today!

    Darm Wednesday, 29 June 2016 10:11 PM

    Ohhh man, I just woke up and realized that we need a new CB governor! Sorry for the mess.

    ranmala Thursday, 30 June 2016 01:29 AM

    Why all this fuss. Like earlier as in other sectors appoint senior most person from the institution to the post. This political appointment was started by Mahinda. Do not follow it

    Rosy Wednesday, 29 June 2016 12:09 PM

    Who will win the battle between President and PM?

    Neil Thursday, 30 June 2016 01:42 AM

    Are you the real professional?

    shanthapriya Wednesday, 29 June 2016 12:21 PM

    hats off to JVP

    KOLA KOTIYA Wednesday, 29 June 2016 12:24 PM

    WE NEED CABRAL

    Ranjith Wednesday, 29 June 2016 12:35 PM

    Yes of course!A suitable man who is not a political agent of Mahendran and Ranil, who can come out of the mess Cabral and Mahendran created and redeem the lost prestige of the Institution and rebuilt confidence of local as well as foreign investors.Ranjith

    Ramsay Wednesday, 29 June 2016 12:49 PM

    It looks like MY3 / Ranil honeymoon is over

    Jesus Thursday, 30 June 2016 02:07 AM

    Please appoint Ganenseara Thera he knows lot about the economy and discriminating other faiths

    kk Wednesday, 29 June 2016 12:49 PM

    who will pay the loss sir via DM Android App

    Hibshim Wednesday, 29 June 2016 12:54 PM

    Yes need a non political figure to be the Govenor and uplift the Institution out of its mess

    wtf Thursday, 30 June 2016 04:23 AM

    Yea well he also said the cabinet will have only 25 ministers, that he will not increase VAT if it was a burden to the public, and many many more things!!! Now he is acting like a hero, because the decision on this has already be made : D

    Aquarius Wednesday, 29 June 2016 01:05 PM

    The President is trying to do what is right and has to move away from political influence to appoint someone professional and cable to restore the image of the SL Central Bank. Lot of cleaning up to be done. There are also second tier professionals who have made loads of deals and continue to manipulate the system.

    wtf Thursday, 30 June 2016 04:25 AM

    maybe a brother or a son :p

    ANTON Wednesday, 29 June 2016 01:06 PM

    WE ARE GEARING UP TO APPOINT A NEW PRESIDENT TOO.

    Chandra Thursday, 30 June 2016 04:27 AM

    This is just a show. Arjun Mahendran will remain. He was called by COPE on 7th July. And will be cleared his possition by JVP lead COPE.

    sarakarthi Wednesday, 29 June 2016 01:08 PM

    Well done President. It means good governance.

    7Stars Wednesday, 29 June 2016 01:21 PM

    pls consider about Mr Arjuns brother via DM Android App

    Ramsay Wednesday, 29 June 2016 01:39 PM

    Why? For meeting Ranil in private to save Mahendran

    ananda Wednesday, 29 June 2016 01:43 PM

    Eran Wickramaratne is a good replacement as a banker. via DM Android App

    Sri Lankans Thursday, 30 June 2016 07:24 AM

    If there is a battle, they obviously know how to battle without trading insults!!

    Sanjaya Wednesday, 29 June 2016 01:57 PM

    Ah why replace him so soon? You should have waited for many more years to take this decision. I mean he has a an absolutely clean record so far and no allegations what so ever. Did anyone hear anything bad about poor Mahendran?

    CitizenPerera Wednesday, 29 June 2016 02:27 PM

    We need a new governor and a Royalist who can govern and be loyal to the 'Royal' mafia.

    Niran Wednesday, 29 June 2016 02:30 PM

    How about for once, you advertise globally and appoint a highly qualified, experienced, sri lankan candidate instead of a typical political appointment. For example, not like appointing your brother as Chairman of Sri Lanka Telecom!

    Hector Wednesday, 29 June 2016 02:33 PM

    Can you remove the PM also

    mohandev Wednesday, 29 June 2016 02:38 PM

    Hats off to JO who exposed RW-AR hora deal from day 1, not JVP until few days ago just to cover their shame

    Rushdi Wednesday, 29 June 2016 02:48 PM

    Ramsay: Your wishful thinking will not realise any day.

    shanthapriya Wednesday, 29 June 2016 03:15 PM

    FOR SURE YOU MAY HAVE HAD HOPPERS LAST NIGHT WITH SOMEONE

    Manel Wednesday, 29 June 2016 03:23 PM

    Well done Mr. President. If you can consolidate SLFP position in Govt. and keep all good UNPers and throw the crooks out.

    kk Wednesday, 29 June 2016 04:04 PM

    can you sir via DM Android App

    Nihal Gunatilake Wednesday, 29 June 2016 04:24 PM

    Hello - I wish Mahindananada Alutgamage to be the next Chief of the Bank. Just a Royalist-he has a pass in O/L-He is from up country (tea estates side) No interest in other peoples assets-He is bit hot tempered- CB is air conditioned in the lobby too.Ideal man who cares nobody. Try him - give him a chance. He is like James BOND.bye Nihal Gunatilake

    Rohan Wednesday, 29 June 2016 04:31 PM

    Who ever you chose he/she must be an excellent economist with a strong personality to be able to take pressure.

    Rohan Wednesday, 29 June 2016 04:34 PM

    Please dont bring a political pawn who is less educated than you so you can control him.

    Uvindu Wednesday, 29 June 2016 05:01 PM

    That's like saying someone is good personal finances because he is a cashier at a bank. Or that someone must be good in bed because he has 7-8 kids.

    RD Thursday, 30 June 2016 04:42 PM

    Huh within hours?? But still no one has been appointed.

    Ramya Wednesday, 29 June 2016 05:09 PM

    Yes, we can throw a few other names into the hat as well. How about Wimal Weerawansa (Mr. Lemon Puffs), Bandula Gunwardene (Tuition Master), Udaya Gammanpila (Snake)???

    OnlyKata Wednesday, 29 June 2016 05:12 PM

    You have all forgotten Mr. Bandula Gunawardena the miracle economist. We can make merry with Rs.2500/- also have a balance to develop the country.

    MP for Kandy North Wednesday, 29 June 2016 05:54 PM

    A Deputy Governor should be appointed Governor...this is the practice in normal countries...

    Piyumi Fernando Wednesday, 29 June 2016 06:21 PM

    Why not appoint Sajin Vaas?

    Lanka Wednesday, 29 June 2016 06:27 PM

    Not so fast.....promises, promises!!

    Lanka Wednesday, 29 June 2016 06:30 PM

    Can't wait to see who the next "economic" is....

    Aquarius Wednesday, 29 June 2016 06:45 PM

    Being a Sri Lankan, it is common knowledge that accusing someone is a very popular game. Sometimes we have people with no knowledge of the subject who suddenly become expert professionals with advise galore. Lets leave the real professionals to clear this madness please.

    Henry Wednesday, 29 June 2016 07:01 PM

    At last he had realized an honest CB Governor to a country is vital as the Kidney to a person.

    Sharon Wednesday, 29 June 2016 07:08 PM

    Hats off to JO. By the way did you use a helicopter to go back and forth between Colombo (Polonnaruwa) and Badulla. via DM iOS App
