The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members of the Unity Government would continue to remain in it, backing SLFP Chairman and President Maithripala Sirisena, Minister S.B. Dissanayake today said.

However, he said they would continue to push for drastic changes in the government including changes in portfolios.

“Our objective of appointing one of our SLFP members as the Prime Minister remains the same. These changes should neither be delayed nor hurried,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    SB (Silly Boy) if you want to have a PM, you need to have a majority! Elementary Motson

    SB we know that its all along a drama. You were given the job to release the pressure of the Pohottuwa win and you manged things superbly. Dilan and Susil fell into the trap yet people like Daya and Soyza had some sense not to be commit themselves. RW will govern and it is time MS to be independent and set examples for good governance. GOOD LUCK

    We knew that. Without minister privileges how can you live

    Good decision. Let those who want to join JO like Susil & Dilan may do so. Implement all pledges given by MS to round up the fraudsters & criminals with the appointment of SF. Maintain the cohabitation between the 2 parties with check & balances to avoid a repetition of the likes of the bond scandal & high way robberies and other frauds. Good luck. via DM Android App

    SB should have been jailed for bribery if not for the Netticumaras sticking their neck for him.he is an out right looser and a back door entrant to parliament. He will carry anyoned sh*t buckets to remain where he is.he is an outright looser. Even during the concluded elections on the 10th.His constituents does not want him at all.
