    ranil Tuesday, 16 July 2013 04:47 AM

    we knew that from long, when he was in the bench he has indicated his political vision. in several occasions

    Vas Tuesday, 16 July 2013 04:39 AM

    Good comments guys, this shows how desperate the people of Sri Lanka are for good leadership. The crooks have hijacked the country, it is going to be a long hard struggle to get it back. TNA decision is on the right track. Lets hope for the best.

    Good for the ruling party to nomninate Sarath Silva while UNP can nominate Shirani bandaranayake.

    raviraj Tuesday, 16 July 2013 04:16 AM

    what about the real terrorist sitting with the government

    raviraj Tuesday, 16 July 2013 04:15 AM

    surely would be an ex-terrorist who can grab votes

    areef Tuesday, 16 July 2013 05:40 AM

    I hope SLFP will forward better CM candidates for Waymba and Madayma. We can't find match to Judge Wigneshwaren.

    S.Sriranjan Monday, 15 July 2013 01:37 PM

    Sam Monday, 15 July 2013 01:24 PM

    chamini Monday, 15 July 2013 12:55 PM

    No hope we have no hope on you...let everyone gets a fair chance. Let the people decides who they want as CM.

    ramesh Monday, 15 July 2013 12:46 PM

    yes and not Daya Master

    sss Monday, 15 July 2013 12:24 PM

    Yes South need to learn productive work habits of the North also

    saman kumara Monday, 15 July 2013 12:20 PM

    Am not a tamil and am not from the north, but feel like want to vote for this gentleman, really hope he wins.
    Good luck sir.

    sarath Tuesday, 16 July 2013 08:35 AM

    Justice Vigneshwaran was little controversial after retirement. We did not know that he will take such a U turn to do politics. TNA politics is always harder for a liberal minded man to digest what ever the race may be.

    Onion... Tuesday, 16 July 2013 08:36 AM

    educated people should come & take over this country....

    sobers Tuesday, 16 July 2013 08:23 AM

    Very True, a commendable comment.

    No Hope Tuesday, 16 July 2013 08:18 AM

    Mr.Wigneshvarans movement is a great step by Northern politicians as well as for its voters. but southern goons never ever understand the reality and they never send best people to the Parliament. They send Mervin, SB,Mangala, Dew, Duminda etc...LOL

    sri lakan system Tuesday, 16 July 2013 07:55 AM

    The first time we are going have a well educated CM.People of high caliber should come forward to take up high position.We have to clean up dirty politicians from our society.All communities should live with peace and harmony in this beautiful island.

    PRASANNAJIT Tuesday, 16 July 2013 07:13 AM

    Vas, the problem is politicians in the top do not read these comments.

    Boobamba Tuesday, 16 July 2013 07:02 AM

    Yes South did learn productive work habits of the North when Vartha Raja and Prabakaran were in power!

    Grace Tuesday, 16 July 2013 06:58 AM

    Even educated voters in the South's weakness is voting for uneducated.

    Javi Monday, 15 July 2013 12:13 PM

    High diplomatic move

    Kavi Tuesday, 16 July 2013 06:43 AM

    Government may nominate angajan for the candidate who was born in 1983 and no formal education and just parashuted up to SLFP Jaffna leadership just for the money mahina brothers get from him...

    ss Tuesday, 16 July 2013 06:33 AM

    mervin :-)

    Reza Quraish Tuesday, 16 July 2013 06:33 AM

    Fantastic move, But its a WARNING to the Government as LEGAL battles ahead on the PC powers. Very knowledgeble person on law aspiring for the job of CM. Good move by TNA and good example for the SLFP and UNP.

    sach Tuesday, 16 July 2013 06:07 AM

    surain lal Tuesday, 16 July 2013 06:01 AM

    Irrespective of cast creed races we all admire the decision country really need that calibre of gentlemen to take our country forward being a Sinhalese my grate wishes to TNA & Mr. Vigneshwaran for a success

    sobers Tuesday, 16 July 2013 05:51 AM

    Majority of the Srilankan public wants educated and gentleman as political leaders, unfortunatley the decision makers on selection of candidates prefer differently. No candidacy should be given to fraudsters,Muredrers and suspects,Rapist,Uneducated,wealthy individuals who have made money through corrupt means etc...

    M.O.A. Careem Tuesday, 16 July 2013 05:44 AM

    kick or self start ?

    Sunil P Monday, 15 July 2013 07:46 AM

    Glad to see a honorable candidate

    Ravi Monday, 15 July 2013 09:35 AM

    Let's see MR's choice....

    Yehiya Monday, 15 July 2013 09:04 AM

    This is the weakness & difference of north & south politics.

    XXXX Monday, 15 July 2013 08:59 AM

    Good example to UNP & SLFP. This can follow by all parties.Professional need for the correct Job.Welcome Justice.

    CROW Monday, 15 July 2013 08:57 AM


    Hettiarachchi Monday, 15 July 2013 08:06 AM

    This is a good example for the other parties tp follow.

    Mohamed Monday, 15 July 2013 08:08 AM

    The TNA, with Judge Vigneshwaran as the CM in the NPC, could set a good example for good governance. Wish them the best.

    PRASANNAJIT Monday, 15 July 2013 08:06 AM

    We need learned people from all communities. Not thugs and criminals.

    thaya Monday, 15 July 2013 08:00 AM

    TreeHouse Monday, 15 July 2013 07:42 AM

    Very good selection. I salute TNA for selecting educated leaders.

    Sri Lankan Monday, 15 July 2013 07:36 AM

    Happy to hear that professionals like Justice C.V Wigneswaran getting to politics.

    HK Monday, 15 July 2013 07:30 AM

    Harry Monday, 15 July 2013 07:32 AM

    I think it is a very good decision by TNA. Educated people should lead in Politics to resolve all our problems.

    Fayad Monday, 15 July 2013 07:26 AM

    janak Monday, 15 July 2013 07:28 AM


    No Hope Monday, 15 July 2013 10:56 AM

    That's what we say Any body backed by LTTE or support directly or indirectly or appear for LTTE's ambitions; that is LTTE/ Terrorist.
    Who could say it is isn't.

    GC Monday, 15 July 2013 11:53 AM

    It is uneducated atttitudes like yours (No Hope's) that prevent this country be in peace and develop genuinely (instead of with mega projects).

    Athula Monday, 15 July 2013 11:45 AM

    Hope the Rajapakses will play a masterstroke to checkmate him.

    Wijesinghe Monday, 15 July 2013 11:40 AM

    patta pata pata !!!

    radish.S Monday, 15 July 2013 11:26 AM

    Great . Just compare him with former, and present EPC Chief Ministers, like Mount Everest and marshy lands.

    ravisandu Monday, 15 July 2013 11:21 AM

    undoubtedly he is a man of principles, surely an endangered species in this debacle of Asia....All the best Sir!!!

    Dalu Banda Monday, 15 July 2013 11:11 AM

    my best wishes to all the Tamil friends.

    Tharma Monday, 15 July 2013 10:54 AM

    Its seems he is the CM already, no need election and waste of money and time.

    krish Monday, 15 July 2013 07:27 AM

    No Hope Monday, 15 July 2013 10:53 AM

    That's what we say Any body backed by LTTE or support directly or indirectly or appear for LTTE's ambitions; that is LTTE/ Terrorist.
    Who could say it is isn't.

    Yogi Monday, 15 July 2013 10:49 AM

    It is a good choice but can he stand up against repeal of 13 plus?

    Kirupa Monday, 15 July 2013 10:37 AM

    very good decision of TNA. Respected Judge Vigneshwaran is the best candidate for right time.

    raaj Monday, 15 July 2013 10:32 AM
