President Maithripala Sirisena is reported to have decided to retain the Law and Order ministry under the defense ministry, Government sources said.
There was a separate ministry for Law and Order and Home Affairs but Home Affairs has been assigned to the ministry of Internal, Provincial Councils and Local Government this time.
It is reported that the portfolio of Law and Order would be gazetted under the defense ministry. (Ajantha Kumara Agalakada)

Please don't blame me. Law and order should be given to a person who has very clear mentally. I think the President is not proper for that one.

What is the use of swearing in same old people who do not want to face an election?
Sri lankan Thursday, 20 December 2018 02:20 PM
This is illegal under the 19th Amendment of the constitution. Go back to supreme courts ...
JK Hatton Thursday, 20 December 2018 02:22 PM
OK let's see whether you are fulfilling your promise of 2015.
Gamaya Thursday, 20 December 2018 02:26 PM
OK Mr Sirisena, now let's see how the court cases start moving. If they do not the people can know who the stumbling block is

Courts are under Minister of Justice Thalatha Atukorale.

This is called conflict of interest. He cannot hold this portfolio. Time time again he proofed he is protecting the culprit from the beginning. He must be forced to resign.
Sri Wickrema Thursday, 20 December 2018 02:32 PM
Is he going to continue his interference with investigations against corrupt politicians ?
Nadia Thursday, 20 December 2018 02:43 PM
Sure, let's appoint the person who acted illegally against the constitution to run the ministry of Law and Order!
Citizen Perera Thursday, 20 December 2018 03:12 PM
This important ministry should go to a person with a clear mind..
Preme Thursday, 20 December 2018 04:03 PM
If president can appoint a ministerial post to wimal weersvansa who rediculed him so much why he is refusing to appoint S. F because he has criticised him.
Wise Donkey Thursday, 20 December 2018 04:04 PM
This should go to one who has studied law. This person is one who has flouted the law!
Disawe Thursday, 20 December 2018 05:00 PM
Law and order will be like aapa and lunumiris

The President is a agricultural farm officer, with some basic knowledge of the farming. Therefore he has to learn ‘Law and Order’ before he does any professional work at the Government Level. After all the mess created by him, he should now study all the rules and basic regulations, before doing something for the country.

He is thinking about previously famous worses "I KNOW THE LAW PUTHA" or "උලත් එකයි පිලත් එකයි අපි හැමදා ජොලියේ ඉන්නවා"

Another constitutional violation. Hope someone will sue him in supreme court again!

The darama's our country face during the past decades was due to lapses in law and order sector. No difference at present. Are we going to continue to the future? This post must be held by a person without any conflict of interest?
Fedi Friday, 21 December 2018 06:54 AM
Please keep Law and Order unless your orders reversed by the court.
Pradeep Friday, 21 December 2018 07:27 AM
President is the head of the cabinet and ministers are answerable to President. But when he takes charge of a Ministry, he does not hold that position any more. He becomes another minister under Prime Minister and answerable to Prime minister.Is this correct?

Mr. President, law and order in Sri Lanka is at its lowest ebb. It takes a person with true grit to tackle law and order in any Country but you, Sir, does not have that qualification and further more, how can you have a grip on law and order when you are globe trotting half of the year. Give the job to a man with balls, will you. It goes without mentioning the one man who can uphold law and order in his own way.

Yes we have to punish even if a dog is killed
