    Independent undesirables.

    Dee Friday, 10 July 2015 05:55 PM

    He will get votes but not from his family. He has swindled them as well.

    Fassey Friday, 10 July 2015 12:26 PM

    Yes go ahead, yet there will be fools to support these corrupt politicians. At the election department will have some revenue through these deposit money.

    WHERE ELSE TO GO

    Desmond Jeromme Friday, 10 July 2015 09:30 AM

    He will only get his vote and his family votes.

    ayeshmantha Friday, 10 July 2015 12:31 PM

    why this is even in news? Providing free publicity what, DM ?

    Good way to spend the ill gotten wealth to save yourself. Sri lankan style. via DM Android App

    Vijith Pieterz Friday, 10 July 2015 09:33 AM

    May be MR would have told him to do so.

    Sonali Friday, 10 July 2015 12:37 PM

    If anyone votes for this crook/scum bag he is either mad, ignorant, or a bigger crook than this scum bag.

    antonius Friday, 10 July 2015 12:39 PM

    to avoid too many independant candidates, what is the minimum number of voters a candidate needs to be able to demand a seat in parliament

    Mevan Friday, 10 July 2015 12:42 PM

    The game plan is clear. All the crooks, rogues and corrupt fellows of MARA regime want to come to parliament and re-group. Let us hope sanity will prevail and theses crooks will be voted out on the 17th.

    Premalal Friday, 10 July 2015 03:25 PM

    Make MS your party leader he can be lead by anyone.

    Bala Friday, 10 July 2015 12:47 PM

    What hypocrisy - none of the four convicted but no nomination. But Mahindananda, Jonston, Wimal W charged and given nomination. Well actually if MR is nominated then anyone else should be nominated.

    kan Friday, 10 July 2015 12:48 PM

    Sajin, please do not waste your ill-gotten wealth, just keep it for your lawyers fees to fight court cases.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 10 July 2015 12:54 PM

    Well, never give up, because for uneducated rogues like this, politics is definitely a treasure trove.

    Fassey Friday, 10 July 2015 03:41 PM

    Party name" Independent Rogues Party " symbol is rat

    Coconut Republic Friday, 10 July 2015 03:48 PM

    Former monitoring MP to be monitored by us.

    prasantha60 Friday, 10 July 2015 10:04 AM

    People how vote for him, they must be out of there mind

    Lima Friday, 10 July 2015 10:09 AM

    WHAT LAW WE HAVE IN SRI LANKA , AN ACCUSED AND PRISIONER YOU GIVE NOMINATION TO CONTEST AGAIN. NOT IN HISTORY OF ANY GOVERNMENT OF ANY COUNTRY

    chux Friday, 10 July 2015 10:40 AM

    Galle district brave southners pls take your oppertunity

    Aquarius Friday, 10 July 2015 10:47 AM

    Just shows the mentality of these people. Leave the fact that they are still to be convicted of their well known crimes, but they know, in their conscience, what they did and still want to come forward to represent the people. What a joke!

    Dissanayaka R Friday, 10 July 2015 10:54 AM

    Simple advice to all Sri Lankan voters please you privilege of voting wisely and refrain from voting for any uneducated candidates. These candidates take up politics only when they dont possess any vocational trade skills or education to make a living.Be smart vote smart

    ANTON Friday, 10 July 2015 11:10 AM

    HE IS INDEPENDENT, BECAUSE NO ONE DEPENDS ON HIM ..........

    silva Friday, 10 July 2015 11:21 AM

    Pal horu should be locked up

    Raz Friday, 10 July 2015 04:50 PM

    You cant be serious. I am sure you are looking for publicity. via DM Android App

    Bippity Boppity Boo Friday, 10 July 2015 08:24 AM

    Try the UNP. You may get nominations from them.

    Mason Friday, 10 July 2015 11:32 AM

    You guys have no chance of winning a seat. May be you have too much wealth and make a show of it.

    Sri Lankan Friday, 10 July 2015 08:36 AM

    SLHK - Sri Lankan Horu Kattiya!!!

    Ralahami Friday, 10 July 2015 11:33 AM

    It seems that some people are such idiots that they do not understand how idiotic they are. What a pity!

    cheers Friday, 10 July 2015 11:37 AM

    Way to go Sajin when one door closes another one opens good thinking of a positive person ratherthan thinking negatively

    Andy Friday, 10 July 2015 05:09 PM

    Wait and See. Donkeys in Galle will empty few bottles supplied by him and vote for him although he is a criminal.

    Onlooker Friday, 10 July 2015 02:23 PM

    Gods drive them mad before destroying them.

    Madlin Friday, 10 July 2015 02:30 PM

    And support MR via DM Android App

    garawi Friday, 10 July 2015 11:56 AM

    Who are the others? Mervyn, Duminda, Sarana and others who were charged and suspected of corruption?

    Muhandiram Friday, 10 July 2015 02:42 PM

    Will he make a Declaration of his Assets? Will be quite interesting to see that.

    Olive Sunday, 12 July 2015 06:11 PM

    You have a great sense of humor, brother. I like the suggested party name and symbol. You nearly killed me with laughter !!

    Manel Friday, 10 July 2015 12:07 PM

    This is Sri Lanka. Any bloody rogue with ill-gotten money can enter parliament. A lot of us are born in the wrong country.

    Dilipa Friday, 10 July 2015 09:19 AM

    who are they representing?
