Parliamentarian Daina Gamage today proposed that a motion should be passed with a two-thirds majority in Parliament to extend the term of the President by two more years claiming that the President had lost two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

She told Parliament that the term of the Parliament should also be extended by two years.

Speaking during the adjournment debate on the President's policy statement, she said Expressway network in the country could have been completed unless the two years were wasted due to the pandemic.

She said the world has been affected due to this global pandemic adding that queues for food and fuel were reported in Australia and the USA and that cost of food had also gone up in those countries.

The MP said the President should be supported by everyone to face this global pandemic and added that he could not do it alone. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    good idea, return the tax collected from us as well

    Samantha Friday, 21 January 2022 06:12 PM

    Thats why we said we shouldn't allow cows in the parliament. Now they start eating papers, seats, books? Constitution and everything.There is no grass, you know!

    mp Friday, 21 January 2022 06:14 PM

    Is it to make people more miserable? You idiot.

    Richard Vonhagt Friday, 21 January 2022 06:18 PM

    These type of statements should not surprise us any longer. People always, always, get the rulers and policy makers they deserve. God bless, Ceylon. Oh wait, God abandoned Ceylon on the 4th of February, 1948, along with the Brits.

    joshua Friday, 21 January 2022 06:21 PM

    so if he does well we should reduce 2 years? We can see that your hands are well oiled by SLPP. But we general public has no interest in this useless story of yours. Nobody cares

    Soothsayer Friday, 21 January 2022 06:28 PM

    Nonsense. In that case the rest of the world also extend the heads in their countries by two more years.This woman has gone bonkers to curry favour with the president

    Mohan Friday, 21 January 2022 06:32 PM

    Let's have elections and let the people decide.

    Matt Chris Friday, 21 January 2022 06:37 PM

    We will send you home soon. We don't need a fools like you people.

    Lal Weerasekara Friday, 21 January 2022 06:43 PM

    Yeah right. How much did he pay you to say this?

    Mother Fucker Friday, 21 January 2022 06:47 PM

    She wants to be screwed by the Prez!

    Arnold Friday, 21 January 2022 07:08 PM

    Kps Friday, 21 January 2022 07:11 PM

    Diana, you need to open your eyes that there are no queues in USA to by anything. Except to watch a concert. Looks like you are getting ready with your landing strip for President.

    sunil Friday, 21 January 2022 07:20 PM

    Christopher Seneviratne Friday, 21 January 2022 07:56 PM

    This woman is insane. She should be sent to an insane asylum.

    kumar Friday, 21 January 2022 08:27 PM

    What an Intelligence for a parliamentarian ? Does she know the basics of the constitution?

    jimbo Friday, 21 January 2022 08:31 PM

    Diana, you are good for nothing. So keep your big mouth shut.

    Another two years are not enough to make him ORGANIC !!!

    Ranaweera Friday, 21 January 2022 08:37 PM

    The argument is incorrect and not provided in legislation. This type of people are actually being sent to the Parliament by our stupid voters. They are waiting to replace the current government with another bunch of thieves.

    Is pandemic over?

    Ramesh Friday, 21 January 2022 08:56 PM

    The speaker said other day only 133 books borrowed from the parliament library past year. I am pretty much sure you don't even know where the library is located in the parliament. Your statement proves that.

    Karalasingam Sivalingam Saturday, 22 January 2022 09:09 AM

    Current parliament lack intelligent parliamentarians even to contribute to bring viable criticism. How can these goons change the constitution to their whims and fancies. Democracy should thive similar to India.

    Premalal Perera Saturday, 22 January 2022 09:26 AM

    This cow has been standing for long in the grass queue.

    Jinapala Fernando Saturday, 22 January 2022 04:45 PM

    A milking cow is shouting and awaiting to give milk.

    Ralaharamy Saturday, 22 January 2022 04:58 PM

    Thanks to Sajith Premadasa, for accommodating her in his SBJ list. When she opens her mouth, she displaya her level of any(?) intelligence.

    Bandul Saturday, 22 January 2022 05:13 PM

    Who is this MP? What does she know about democracy or is she trying to please someone for her own benefit?

    Roger Fernando Saturday, 22 January 2022 05:53 PM

    This is what happens when you send stupid cows to parliament. They only know to 'moo'. What a waste of space these women are..

    Big Mouth Sunday, 23 January 2022 07:03 AM

    Some women say the stupidest things and Diana says it it with gusto!!!

    june macapagal Sunday, 23 January 2022 07:27 PM

    She is really gone mad and should be sent to a mental hospital and not to the parliament.
