    Next step join SLPP? This is the game in Sri Lanka for the past 71 years. Time for a fresh new crowd with youth and intelligence. All these current parties are the same side of the coin. They take turns to rob the country. First step is to make the Judiciary, Legislative and Executive FULLY INDEPENDENT. If this is not done they will keep resorting to this ugly game. If these changes are enacted the country can be developed in REAL terms within 10 years as Sri Lanka has most of the natural resources. Once the trade surpluses are made existing debt can be wiped out as a result of elimination of corruption by the politicians. No politician should be allowed to contest more than twice UNLESS UNDER EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES. In other words no job for life in parliament.
