President Maithripala Sirisena is to be nominated for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize, a government minister informed Parliament today.

Tourism and Christian Affairs Minister John Amaratunga who was speaking during the second reading debate in the House said many countries were currently discussing the nomination of President Sirisena for the Nobel Peace Prize for his initiative to form a joint government made up of two main political parties in the country.

"We can all go and witness President Sirisena accepting the Nobel Peace Prize if we work together for the betterment of the country," he told opposition MPs

The minister said opposition members should support the Budget if they want to secure their MPs posts. Citing reasons for it he said each MP will get Rs1.5 million from the decentralized Budget. (Yohan Perera)

    Mr. Minister, why not propose Prabakaran as he sacrificed all his carders for the sake of peace not only in Sri Lanka, but in the whole region...in that way he deserves it more that MS.

    Ranga Sunday, 29 November 2015 03:28 PM

    Great man. True

    CitizenPerera Saturday, 28 November 2015 06:41 PM

    If Obama was a recipient then why not "Marru Sirra" who embraced bandits, rapists and drug lords into government.

    vini Saturday, 28 November 2015 07:14 PM

    How many presidents in the world have won Nobel prizes for winning elections?(I do not think you will publish this comment)

    Jayasingha Saturday, 28 November 2015 09:59 PM

    What is the peace he has achieved? Is this the reward for subjecting this country to foreign domination and paving the way for Elam to satisfy western LTTE diaspora groups?

    Sapu Saturday, 28 November 2015 11:03 PM

    The only one that deserves this price is Sobhitha thero

    Sapu Sunday, 29 November 2015 07:56 PM

    Dumb MR supporters as always doesn;t even know the meaning of teh word "Diaspora"

    Sapu Sunday, 29 November 2015 07:57 PM

    What is the "sinhala forces"

    K.Senarathne Sunday, 29 November 2015 07:59 PM

    Are that dumb? MS stopped Pro-LTTE sentiments from rising back and brought back the non-alinged foriegn policy

    Ramola Sunday, 29 November 2015 08:35 PM

    What did he do to earn it except bow down low to the West?

    Ram Sunday, 29 November 2015 08:47 PM

    Hilarious!!! Yahapalanaya made the whole country a comedy...

    op Sunday, 29 November 2015 10:31 PM

    racist Sinhalese shout LTTE when a president rarely cares about minorityies

    Gayan Sunday, 29 November 2015 11:06 PM

    He deserves an autopsy before Nobel prize.

    Gayan Sunday, 29 November 2015 11:12 PM

    Our Friday deserves it.

    shan Sunday, 29 November 2015 06:39 AM

    what the hell is this?

    MR Tuesday, 01 December 2015 12:28 AM

    What about President Mahinda for defeating LTTE?

    Vik Sunday, 29 November 2015 08:47 AM

    Just realized I have the ability to laugh with my .......!

    Piyal Jayasingha Monday, 30 November 2015 12:59 AM

    This must be the deal MR has done with Americans to get all LTTE carders release from the prison. Should give medal to Chandrika for her 0% development and 100% talks she has done during her regime.

    marvin Saturday, 28 November 2015 06:34 AM

    What about Minister John Amaratunga for his achievements.?

    Perera Monday, 30 November 2015 04:05 AM

    Not MS for sure but late Ven Sobitha Thera who mustered the forces at a time when most quarters believed Change is not possible.

    Sene Saturday, 28 November 2015 06:45 AM

    He deserves it, also for appointing those rejected by the people at the election to the cabinet as ministers, first to do in the world.

    Sameen Jan Tuesday, 01 December 2015 05:54 AM

    Long John Amaratunge in Parliament said it was the NOBLE prize

    Lakshman Jayasinghe Monday, 30 November 2015 05:34 AM

    good idea. but do not work

    Ravindra Galhena Saturday, 28 November 2015 07:21 AM

    Excellent!! I predicted this via my article published in the Sunday Observer of 15/Feb this year :)

    lion Monday, 30 November 2015 06:14 AM

    What a joke, take it as the joke of the century.

    p nonis Monday, 30 November 2015 06:21 AM

    If Brutus of the Roman Empire was Living today.He Too would have won the Nobel Peace Price like Yasar Arafat.

    Rohana Monday, 30 November 2015 08:07 AM

    MS must be awarded the noble prize for the first to visit most number of countries within 10months period

    Andrew Pitugala Monday, 30 November 2015 08:10 AM

    Posthumous nomination of the late Sobitha Thero is most acceptable.

    anura Monday, 30 November 2015 08:22 AM

    What a ridiculous proposition. None of the srilankan politicians fit into the criterion to get this award.

    lkboy Saturday, 28 November 2015 05:25 PM

    Irrespective of politics, this will be a Great achievement for Sri Lanka.

    Ravindra Galhena Monday, 30 November 2015 08:35 AM

    Some people seem jealous about this!! A country like no other!!

    IVJ Saturday, 28 November 2015 05:29 PM

    “we all can go and witness”, is he expecting the entire jumbo cabinet to do a joy ride at our expense?

    Rathnasiri Sunday, 29 November 2015 02:29 PM

    Definitely west and tamils will support this move.Because he betrayed Sinhala forces and the country

    kuranage Saturday, 28 November 2015 05:50 PM

    you have to take brain wash....

    Gamini vithanachchi Sunday, 29 November 2015 02:34 PM

    Yasar Arfat also got this peace award. But still they are fighting. No peace in the horizen.Gamini vithanachchi

    Chathuranga Saturday, 28 November 2015 05:58 PM

    who care about Nobel Peace Prize..... No body..

    Dee Monday, 30 November 2015 09:03 AM

    If there was a prize for war and racial disharmony, we have a great person to nominate. He is now lacking international attention.
