    Along with the commision maje a new amendment in to the constitution Those who are under investigation on criminal account and individulals having been or in prision to be prohibited from engaging directly or infirectly in any form of active politics and prohibitted from holding ministerial or deputy or in accordance thereof. This will ensure good clean gourvanance. via DM Android App

    Sometimes you think what we read at the time of the election is yet to happen or being delayed. And maybe what we read now will be delayed again in the future too. In other words everyone is playing with words and statements and no one is taking actions. action speak louder than words.

    After all, these are all politicians. No body is interested in punishing the wrong doers as these will boomerang on them when they are in the opposition. So this is simply to buy time and get the maximum votes at the next general election. After the elections nothing will happen to these rogues. Finally the losers are the general public.

    this is funny. It sounds not right as he is still a part of the previous regime. Ideally this should have been appointed by the UNP. which again seems to have lost its focus.

    ANTON Monday, 09 February 2015 09:48 PM

    THEN THERE WILL BE NO OPPOSITION FOR THIS GENERAL ELECTION.

    ANTON Monday, 09 February 2015 09:49 PM

    SOON THE PRISON HOSPITAL WILL BE FULL WITH POLITICIANS AND THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS

    ANTON Monday, 09 February 2015 09:52 PM

    DOES HE NEED AN AUSPICIOUS TIME TO SELECT THIS COMMITTEE.
