    is there any other country in the world, which keeps changing, tinkering with the cabinet, ministers other than Sri Lanka so frequently????? if anyone out there knows please share.... we are soo busy doing these work, except the development of the country!!!

    It seems to me that our President is frequently talking about cabinet reshuffles (although he failed to carry out his own part) to be popular again following the trashing he had at the local government elections. Everyone needs to look at the big picture, of developing the country and energising and motivating people for that, instead of always talking about cabinet changes, fences and other little things.

    When a marriage of convenience turns bitter, this kind of incidents are very common. What these people fail to understand is that the ultimate losers are the masses voted for him. 70 years of independence has give us nothing but utter frustration. Once gain let us live in hopes.

    The independece became bad for SL, better get back to UK rule and live peace and with much better hopes...

    This man uttered 30 years instead of 70 years on the independence day. So he's 40 years back a "MOVING BACKWARDS".

    The Govt should run similar to a company and should penalize or fire based on performance. No matter how many times they reshuffle the cabinet... it still has underperforming MPs in it.

    GC Sunday, 29 April 2018 04:51 PM

    How is the President performing?

    No one in this country is interested in what the monks want, but that this country is ruled by young, honorable and qualified ministers.

    My Lord W, Your wish will be fulfilled. RK Will be back in the Cabinet!

    This President has lost all credibility.No one take him seriously. PM is fighting for his survival .The next 18 month will go rudderously . This is our fate.

    Bon Bon Sunday, 29 April 2018 02:44 PM

    SL is forever stuck in hopelessness, till this generation of politicians are gone...

    Sunil Sunday, 29 April 2018 03:28 PM

    No doubt it will be the same old jokers with probably new titles and a bank robber thrown in for good measure. They have not heeded the message given on Feb 10 th. But the next message(s) will be far more severe.

    Dils Sunday, 29 April 2018 04:14 PM

    No faith in this leadership no matter who comes

    Sils Sunday, 29 April 2018 04:58 PM

    So it will be from frying pan into the fire.

    GH Monday, 30 April 2018 12:08 AM

    Mr. President, it is high time to reshuffle the regime, not the cabinet that has been repeatedly reshuffled sans any effect.

    Dr. Thomas Monday, 30 April 2018 12:31 AM

    There are 3 solutions to anyone problem.1. Accept it 2. Change it or 3. Leave it.If u can't Accept it, Change it.If u can't Change it, Leave it.

    Saraa Goyya Monday, 30 April 2018 02:45 AM

    Ayyio! Mr. President, you chose a religious ceremony at a TEMPLE ground to make a Political Statement ??? You follow MR who does the same quite often. You Sir, are "Out of Place, Out of Words, and soon .... Out of Power"

    Tinkiriya Monday, 30 April 2018 03:10 AM

    Our cabinet is unique like a card pack. All cards are jokers and no matter a re-shuffle, they're all worthless to the country.

    surath Monday, 30 April 2018 03:26 AM

    Don't insult Venerable Theras by marketing them for your mean survival Sir.

    no hope Monday, 30 April 2018 03:44 AM

    why are all these politicos running to temples? are the monks in charge of the country?? first we need to get rid of monks stepping into politics, and then wait for all the politicians of this generation fade away and be replaced by young educated talented leaders

    Appu Monday, 30 April 2018 06:28 AM

    Any one interested in these time/mobey wastine act? It is time to re-shuffle whole govenment. If common man need a job, they have to have qualification and experience except for lawmakers even a donkey also could be appointed.

    Sara Monday, 30 April 2018 07:45 AM

    What has to be discussed at the Cabinet or with his inner cabinet if he has one and put into practice, Our Prez announces at Walagamba Maha Pirivena Viharaya in Dambulla about a new cabinet and no action thereafter and become an idiot once again.

    Dear Kim Jong-un, Please take over Sri Lanka.
