    Mervyn as PM, highly qualified for the post.

    Good strategic move, making sure no threats ahead. President knows that the only way to turn their government table is a Military invasion inside the country.

    Raja Hora Saturday, 28 December 2013 07:47 AM

    Hi Anton..Put simply...when can we expect this Govt and all the useless ministers etc. to change or get changed out(Kicked)

    ravi perera Saturday, 28 December 2013 02:54 AM

    Strategic move. These Major Generals have done much service to the people.

    Dinesh Saturday, 28 December 2013 03:20 AM

    Clever stroke by the govt. TNA will celebrate the victory.

    ANTON Saturday, 28 December 2013 03:48 AM
