    Shehan Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:18 PM

    MR should be face court for his miss use of public funds during his fake prime minister post.

    Jude Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:01 PM

    Oh, this man very hard to get rid of!!??

    Scooby Doo Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:13 PM

    If he continue to dance in this speed he will loose even parliament membership.

    Dallas Tuesday, 18 December 2018 03:23 PM

    Sharon Tuesday, 18 December 2018 08:25 PM

    Jude Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:04 PM

    So the colleague's gesture with PAYBACK !!??

    Tragedy Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:05 PM

    A former President, and a nearly two months illegal PM and now aiming to be opposition Leader. It is a tragedy down the ladder.

    Fedi Wednesday, 19 December 2018 11:58 AM

    He shouldn't be taking that. MR is the most experienced man in the parliament. Why does he goes behind law positions ? He should only be a adviser to opposition and next PM candidate.

    Selvam Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:10 PM

    This is action against minorities.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:13 PM

    Doesn't this fellow have a morsel of shame? It is unbelievable whether these fellows know what is dignity in any job, even the dustbin collector has better principles than these shameless rascals.

    ANTON Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:16 PM

    WILL THIS RANK ALSO CHANGE TO " FORMER OPPOSITION LEADER"

    Further achievement Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:17 PM

    Another achievement for recording into the Guniss Book

    Jude Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:17 PM

    Why not make him the Mace-bearer !!??

    Analysts Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:20 PM

    Oh DAILY MIRROR WHY U ARE WRITING FORMER PRESIDENT PLS WRITE AS A KURUNAGALA MP AND FORMER ( LAST) PRIME MINISTER. And Opp. Leader NEXT ELECTION HE WILL BECAME H. M. (Home Minister) Jayawewa

    Ratnasena Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:22 PM

    As agreed with Mr. Wickramasinghe, this is the return for his resignation from the controversial prime minister position!

    mimslanka1@yahoo.com Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:23 PM

    Seems there is no alternative to the Opposition. They have to be on MR bandwagon for their future aspirations. Amazing there is no other leader to take this position out of all the stalwarts. Perhaps, survival of all others depends on him.

    Confused Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:26 PM

    The man who said the PM post isn't important to him now wants to be opposition leader! But what happened to his SLPP membership?

    Saradiel Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:26 PM

    He handed over the application to join SLPP. Then he was nominated as the party leader. Now his brother Basil says that non of the applications from the SLFP has been accepted so far! Why the people of this country understand that this Rajapaksa family manipulate everything to their advantage? They will do everything to get some power. To serve the people? Joke of the century.

    M O Daya Tuesday, 18 December 2018 05:39 PM

    Saradiel, you are spot on. The reality is that by obtaining membership of another political party, they automatically lose membership of the SLFP. Under the recent Constitutional amendments, they thus lose their seat. The mastrs of manipulation have done it again and the poor fools are the voters.

    bandulaliyanage Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:29 PM

    You have been rejected many time and different ways.Why do you still want to hang around and get your good name tarnish further and further.Stay out of this and allow others to continue.

    raj Tuesday, 18 December 2018 03:29 PM

    Good Name!! Ha Ha

    Don Tuesday, 18 December 2018 12:32 PM

    But MR is a member of SLPP. We all saw him taking the membership from JL P and thereafter MR was giving the membership to few others. As far as I know SLPP has no agreement with UPFA/SLFP nor SLPP has any seats in the parliament

    ram Tuesday, 18 December 2018 04:17 PM

    This post is for how many days. I think MR will loose his MP once challenged by someone for not having elected party membership.

    kukula Tuesday, 18 December 2018 04:27 PM

    What party does this man represent? UPFA/SLPP.

    seneka Tuesday, 18 December 2018 06:39 PM

    This man is shameless, no self-respect, He has been humiliated many times, But still hanging like a leach. He and his family have become mega-rich, He is still hungry for money. The whole family should be in jail.

    Percy Tuesday, 18 December 2018 07:01 PM

    God save Sri Lanka again for the MR to be opposition leader and MS the President. It will be musical chairs again.The Supreme Court should have got rid of MS for his crimes since 26the Oct and cost the economy about 200 billion rupes during the conspiracy of toppling the govt.
