    You make a good point. All this strange behaviour is due to panic and paranoia. 100% insecurity.

    citizen1 Friday, 08 October 2010 06:16 PM

    Ofcourse they should, but that will happen in our dreams unfortunately! 'People' have become an inconvenience to the current bunch.

    Nandimithra Saturday, 09 October 2010 03:21 PM

    Election Comm only does things for MR & Govt. Not what he should do constitutionally. He is a puppet.

    Sena Saturday, 09 October 2010 04:09 PM

    He is in Prison and the hero is gone!!!

    Sepali Saturday, 09 October 2010 04:10 PM

    Hero is on the exercise bike in Prison... Let him stay for what he did - people forget what he did and doesn't want to know!! Cheer up guys

    Ara Friday, 08 October 2010 09:39 PM

    Democracy- Are you joking? Are you talking about Sri Lanka?

    JAMES Friday, 08 October 2010 10:44 PM

    HOW ABOUT BOGGOLAS who lost the election, to confuse the government

    Smart Aleck Friday, 08 October 2010 11:08 PM

    Does the Court Martial decision disqualify The General from sitting in Parliament? What is the real legal position?

    shovini Friday, 08 October 2010 10:13 AM

    Unacceptable. General Sarath Fonseka should be released immediately. He was elected by the people of this country.

    indika Friday, 08 October 2010 10:15 AM

    JVP won at last !!

    zzz Friday, 08 October 2010 10:15 AM

    He will resign allowing AF in ..so on and so forth.

    Nalin Pradeep Friday, 08 October 2010 10:16 AM

    All government offiicials are rush to remove General from the Parliament. Now these professionals converted to puppets. Don't you realy feel shy to wear ties ?????Because real gentlemen only should wear ties..

    Roshan DW Saturday, 09 October 2010 02:55 AM

    Thats a great idea.

    sf Friday, 08 October 2010 10:23 AM

    We need the General... We need our hero...

    Roshan Friday, 08 October 2010 10:27 AM

    The only mistake SF did was that he contested the presidential Election. The actual result of the elction has made the Govt to panic.

    indika Friday, 08 October 2010 10:31 AM

    What SF, now JVP wont bother about him. Now they have their own MP thanks to SF.

    Saradial Friday, 08 October 2010 10:33 AM

    Can we trust this guy? won't he jump to Government?

    malkanthi Friday, 08 October 2010 10:40 AM

    Why are you guys talking ill about JVP, they have not desertered SF or his party?? unlike the UNPers!

    jaya Friday, 08 October 2010 10:41 AM

    i think you are having soe brain problem jump in to BERA LAKE and have a nice bath you will be ok hero will come after 3 years if he is lucky more cases are on going

    lishan Friday, 08 October 2010 10:42 AM

    This is like a "Surangana Katha"

    We need only our hero...

    Lokka Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:51 AM

    Time to say bye bye SF

    bowl head Friday, 08 October 2010 10:42 AM

    no fasting protests because 'lemon puff' is made of wheat flour.

    KANDAUDARATA NILAME Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:52 AM

    TO JAYA- WILL THE PRESENT GOVT & MR SURVIVE FOR 03 YEARS ?

    Concerned Friday, 08 October 2010 10:47 AM

    Must it not be the duty of the DNA to suggest Nipuna's name first, rather than the Elections Commissioner?

    Bu Friday, 08 October 2010 11:04 AM

    KP should be appointed......

    suran Friday, 08 October 2010 11:07 AM

    It is MR's speciality use people and cast them off.

    Hafiz Friday, 08 October 2010 11:09 AM

    I doubt Lakshman or any others who follow will take oaths despite Election Chief has done his routine constitutional duties.

    Shabdeen Friday, 08 October 2010 11:34 AM

    Yes they even left the country fearing in case jilmart did not work.

    wickrama Friday, 08 October 2010 12:09 PM

    JVP should not accept the vacant MP post to mark their protest for removing SF.

    bernard Friday, 08 October 2010 04:30 PM

    They should hold a by-election and let the people decide on whom they want. That is the democratic way.

    Ryan Sunday, 10 October 2010 06:09 AM

    prisoner fonseka is not hero he is a political baby

    Ryan Sunday, 10 October 2010 06:10 AM
