    With your so called progressive orders, first put your own house in order, so that your voters will not throw slippers at your leaders.

    That's what Sri Lankans want. We want a strong leader to lead the country. We witnessed what happened during the Ranil - Sirisena government. We want a government that can take the responsibility of everything rather than giving excuses for the failures. We need a strong leader and stable government.

    Agree. We can throw out in 5 years if not happy.

    Don't worry Sumane, that is what the people wanted so let the people taste it. Feel sorry for those who did not want it
