    Not only PS budgets, even the 2014 budget could have been defeated. But, members of parliament understand the fate of their future with MR.

    I fully agree with you. From what I have heard, this happened also during the Premadasa rule but it seems much worse now,.The people should vote for the educated and the honest/straightforward, and the rulers should give prefernce to them..

    Although the stars are unfavorable to UPFA, during elections they will turn favorable.

    As for the wattegama urban council, the ruling side has not done anything praiseworthy. It is better they are sent home!
