    Great appointment and majority sri lankan peoples number one choice is Gota. All people know he will be a no nonsense man and a man of action which he proved diminishing 30 years of terror whcih no one thought it was a possibility. He proved many wrong.

    I have listened to many presidential candidates speeches since 1977. But this is the best we ever had .Great speech . A man with a mission. Good Luck.

    No..they are the saviors to avoid further carnage to a bleeding nation

    Simon Monday, 12 August 2019 10:06 AM

    MR is the power source of the party. If he was unable to do it in 2015 with all guns blazing, all the forces backing, all the money, all government assets, Judiciary and means of thuggery how on earth he is going to win by appointing his brother as a candidate? Family rule that's what people rejected.

    Janaka Monday, 12 August 2019 10:23 AM

    I am afraid Gota is the only hope, only man with a backbone, we are in a such a mess with a bleeding country in all areas...Sooner he comes to power the better it is for all Sri Lankans, many will agree and disagree but this is the truth....
