    Constitutions are there to safe guard the people and people are not there to safeguard constitutions.

    I think we all Sri Lankan deserved this punishment for unfaithful, and gratitude we showed to our heroes???

    damia Tuesday, 07 September 2010 07:43 AM

    this is not people talking.These are comments by desperate UNP supporters. People did talk in the General Election. check the results.

    These fellows proved that the politics is a game, they are the players & public will cheer them up. Poor Sri Lanka.

    Appuhamy Tuesday, 07 September 2010 07:05 AM

    Does this Country belong to one family?

    Kanniah Tuesday, 07 September 2010 06:56 AM

    Can MR make one more amendment? Limitless eternal life like a limitless presidential term?

    nimal Tuesday, 07 September 2010 06:46 AM

    This is like stock market trading.

    Hassen Tuesday, 07 September 2010 06:01 AM

    All these selfish jokers are not worried about the nation, but only their pockets. This is also a kind of a treason.....

    Dinesh Tuesday, 07 September 2010 06:42 AM

    You cannot be a Sri Lankan

    Waruna Tuesday, 07 September 2010 06:30 AM

    Do you expect them to keep their words?

    Anver Tuesday, 07 September 2010 06:29 AM

    Is there any means to bring these fellows to courts for betraying their voters?

    Positive Thinker Tuesday, 07 September 2010 06:20 AM

    An opportunistic businessman, betraying the people who voted.

    asanka Tuesday, 07 September 2010 06:19 AM

    If so, the people who voted for the UNP are also selfish jokers. As these MP are representing them.

    steve Tuesday, 07 September 2010 06:16 AM

    What democracy for cavemen???
    Sri Lankans are not educate enough to understand the values and merits of democracy. Even Mahinde regime will regret this amendment some day just as the UNP now are regretting introducing the executive presidency to Sri Lanka.
    In Sri Lanka, incumbent president can never be defeated in an election. He goes to election with all machinery and the powers and it is just one horse race.
    May God bless the King and Sri Lanka!

    Hi Ryan,
    Dont you see all five comments above you are opposite to yours. This is the people talking.

    Ryan Hudson Tuesday, 07 September 2010 06:09 AM

    Sir, Your name will be written in gold as a beloved son of mother Sri Lanka in the 1000s of years to come. Thanks for supporting our hero President Mahinda rajapksha at this crucial hour. As citizens of Sri Lanka we invite all MPs to join hands in the rpocess of democratisation of the country by corporating with the constitutional amendments.
