    I wonder why the hell MR wants to come back to politics. Does he thinks he is the the only one who knows how to run the country. Shame on him. He ruined our coun try for the past 10 years.

    Sirisena has more to select from the SLFP bank.

    Nadi Karunaratne Friday, 29 May 2015 09:00 PM

    Is that the Hemal Gunasekera that got into that dispute with the cop when apprehended for speeding and the cops car was subsequently torched?Good governance no? These politicians are laughing at the people.

    All impending loosers of parliamentary seats next time.

    de silva Friday, 29 May 2015 02:28 PM

    I have no problem of appointing new ministers,but don;t we have good looking educated people in the party rather than some of these.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 29 May 2015 02:17 PM

    So, somebody is going characterise them too as "Gandabbayas"

    This is ludicrous in the face of the impending dissolution of Parliament. The President appears to be confused in the face of the impending impeachment.

    Chaminda Friday, 29 May 2015 01:45 PM

    Game plan starts, look and realize!

    Wellwisher Friday, 29 May 2015 01:43 PM

    They need the votes for 20A and after that president should dissolve it immediately.

    Giabao Friday, 29 May 2015 01:29 PM

    LOL, but why ? arent we all expect parliament to be dissolved. What a joke this has become

    Bala Friday, 29 May 2015 01:25 PM
