    Very good, all the MPs will be present in the Parliament, they will never take leave.

    keerthi Friday, 20 December 2013 05:08 AM

    MirakRajBanda Thursday, 19 December 2013 11:14 AM

    Goofy Thursday, 19 December 2013 11:14 AM

    Getting ready for the jump?

    Devanand Friday, 20 December 2013 05:23 AM

    I thought UNP would have lernt a lesson from Paba & Manusha. Shame less UNP wants again. But its nice we can see how many baffolos are there in Southern Province.

    Pradeep Thursday, 19 December 2013 11:19 AM

    '... and expect to cross over after the election.

    Rata Haraka Friday, 20 December 2013 05:38 AM

    Sri Lankan politics is anyway a major drama, so another actress joining the scene is no big deal. Now we have Hollywood, Bollywood, Kollywood and Tollywood, soon Sri Lanka will be Sorrywood.

    ANTON Thursday, 19 December 2013 11:22 AM

    UNITED NADEESHA PARTY

    suneth Thursday, 19 December 2013 11:23 AM

    More and more popular figures not intellects coming into politics and get elected proves how stupid our voters are.......

    Surendran Thursday, 19 December 2013 11:25 AM

    SL needs some fresh looking faces in politics.

    prasanna Thursday, 19 December 2013 11:32 AM

    God Bless Sri Lanka, what a country! Not that far away from the the future, the entire parliament will be a Tele Drama. There is only one in US Arnold Schwarzenegger, in Sri Lanka you can find hundreds! I DO NOT KNOW how people vote in Sri Lanka, probably people are in the opinion of popularity contest instead of elections!

    LankanFellow Friday, 20 December 2013 06:13 AM

    Once bitten twice shy... But UNP was bitten many time still they don't learn... No wonder the party is in utter sambles

    Fayad Friday, 20 December 2013 06:20 AM

    With your name & fame win the election and do a good job specially for the poor

    FACT Friday, 20 December 2013 06:39 AM

    The North getting all the intellectuals elected to rule and the South??? never mind...

    Ken Friday, 20 December 2013 06:40 AM

    George Murphy, Shirley Temple Black, John Davis Lodge, Jesse Ventura, Fred Gandy, Sonny Bono, Fred Thompson, Al Franken, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ronald Reagan. This is just a few US actors and I'm sure you recognize the last name.

    raza Friday, 20 December 2013 06:56 AM

    Has UNP no policies. Another Prabha, who will cross over for the highest Bidder.

    sobers Friday, 20 December 2013 07:08 AM

    Let the artists become politicians and let the Politicians become artistes! A taste of Paradise turning into parasites.

    Saman Friday, 20 December 2013 01:09 AM

    Better if she comes with a decent dress and draw the attention of all. I think she could win the election with a good majority.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 20 December 2013 11:07 AM

    She sounded more mature and better than Paba who displayed her total ignorance of politics in her first interview. It is only hoped that Nadeesha will not follow the footsteps of Paba and betray the party which helped to get the votes.

    Maha_sudu_sinhalaya Friday, 20 December 2013 02:46 AM

    Haiyoooooo UNP ekath thawa ewarai

    Punny Pellow Friday, 20 December 2013 02:50 AM

    Sinhalaya modaya........has always been an accurate prediction!!

    Ashok Friday, 20 December 2013 02:55 AM

    WOW wait and see whats happening bull shit talks cross overs all possible ........

    Be Fair Friday, 20 December 2013 02:56 AM

    Ya, fresh looking faces is all we need, and this is fresh as what fresh can be......

    Ravi Friday, 20 December 2013 03:24 AM

    UNP is again doing a another mistake, because of her character and the beauty our people will vote. Purely our people select the candidate's on beauty not for her brains. Finally she will win and join the kings party and get all the benefits.

    nihal Friday, 20 December 2013 03:34 AM

    dear suneth, i completely agree with you. Unfortunately we have a population with very low political wisdom. Just think about the people in the north. How they have selected the highly educated intellectuals to represent them. This is a very good lesson for the southern people..

    Machan Friday, 20 December 2013 03:44 AM

    To compete with Anarkalee Akarsha...

    Deen Friday, 20 December 2013 04:09 AM

    We thought only Tamil Nadu is a Paradise for jokers.

    Bhagya Friday, 20 December 2013 04:25 AM

    I don't know why educated people don't enter to politics. For instance, in Australia, person must have a degree to select as a candidate from a main political party. But in SL shit......

    Samitha Silva Friday, 20 December 2013 04:33 AM

    What she knows about politics ? Creating another PABA .
