A tense situation erupted in Parliament a short while ago resulting in the suspension of the sitting for 15 minutes.
Government and opposition MPs caused uproar when Government MP Susil Premajayantha once again brought up the issue of a statement given by UNP Deputy Leader Karu Jayasuriya to a weekend newspaper. (KB/YP)

is this a sign of destroying democracy by silencing the opposition? Govt. should not forget the utter humiliation brought on to our country by WW's antics when he exceeded his right of free speech.

They say Sri Lanka has functional democracy. Isn’t it still at infancy stage, although it has passed a good number of calendar years? Grow up you bunch of idxxxs!!!

The always prevails in the parliament and nowhere else. Therefore parliament is the battle ground. In other words parliamentarians are restless they need counseling and should go through psychiatric treatment. Especially for the ruling party MPs.

These folk need severe psycho-therapy. Instead of governing the country they need their heads examined.

There are many important pending issues to be addressed. Parliament sessions are wasting money and time.

All these appear to be to obtain a better Ministry from the President
gUL FERNANDO Wednesday, 08 December 2010 07:11 AM
But they should take better example from previous UNP regims

Judging by the recent events,sweetheart, freedom of speech does not seem to exist even in (not so Great) Britain, the so called mecca of democracy!

Blind fools fighting each other in parliament while one family gets more powerful each day. Who in that house can justify where the increased budget for defence is really for?
jayawickrama Wednesday, 08 December 2010 07:28 AM
The government os trying to cover their mistakes by focussing our attention elsewhere.. It is disgraceful the way the ministers behave.. There needs to be an overhaul in democracy.. Read Karu's statement- it is an apt and sound statement with NO mention on war crimes... How things are twisted.. It is a shame we live in a country of autocratic rule.. Karu hope you stand up to this nonsence..

Probably they have nothing else creative to be done. What with almost all Govt MP's being Minister, Deputy Minister or Senior Minister to ensure they remain in that post and to create "value" they should do something. The problem is also the oppostion is not properly explaining their position to the public and those troublesome opposition Ministers or MP's.
wahoo Wednesday, 08 December 2010 07:37 AM
Lets forget about any other country in this instance and focus on democracy in Lanka... I guess the big ego's are hurt after the oxford fiasco...
suwantha Wednesday, 08 December 2010 07:51 AM
