Former UNP member S.B. Dissanayaka, who crossed over to the SLFP prior to the Presidential elections, has been appointed as the chief SLFP organizer for Udunuwara and will contest the upcoming General elections from the Kandy district.

Speaking to Daily Mirror online Mr. Dissanayaka said that his latest appointment came in the wake of a full presidential pardon.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa had granted a full pardon to the UNP dissident, who was earlier sentenced to jail on contempt of court charges by the Supreme Court.

S.B. Dissanayake a minister in the then United National Front government was found guilty of having insulted the Supreme Court at a cultivation ceremony in Habaraduwa.

He was released on a presidential order before completing his jail sentence.

    Loser Politicians

    Friday, 05 February 2010 09:31 AM

    Talk sense , Dont be stupid

    Friday, 05 February 2010 09:37 AM

    Who knows, he might take the UPFA votes, get into the parliament and pole vault back into UNP. Think twice when you are casting you preference vote for him.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 09:38 AM

    SB, your ambition is now full-filled. God bless you. Few weeks ago you were a traitor, now you are a patriotic.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 01:36 PM

    This is the class and callibre of our politicians..The released, the pardoned and the pardoner.Sorry state of affairs for Sri Lanka Politics

    Friday, 05 February 2010 05:15 AM

    not a trust guy ..

    Friday, 05 February 2010 05:26 AM

    Udunuwara UPFA votes would be 80%

    Friday, 05 February 2010 05:34 AM

    S.B. Welcome to real patriot party.... Never go with our traitors and Western money

    Friday, 05 February 2010 06:08 AM

    Nothing to be surprised of. There are enough opportunists like SB in our political scene. Ultimately, it is the voters who are being taken for a ride by these turn-coats who change sides for personal gains. He was always in line for a Presidential pardon after he accomplished his mission to destabilise the UNP.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 10:20 AM

    Good decision, we need to destroye the UNP bala Kottu

    Friday, 05 February 2010 06:20 AM

    Rolling stones gather no moss (credibility)!

    If "jumping" is bad then "jumper_accepting" is equally wrong irrespective of the party! Wonder which party has more jumpers now after the latest jumping session.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 06:20 AM

    Go S.B.! Despite your criminal record I still think you can get things done! You have better chances than being with this tight -a bunch of UNPers!

    Friday, 05 February 2010 10:29 AM

    If people are so clever they should reject opportunists and pole-vaulters but alas that won't happen in this country!

    Friday, 05 February 2010 03:22 PM

    HIS GAMBLE HAS BEEN WELL REWARDED.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 06:52 AM

    We are in a dilemma, as to whether laugh or cry. It is high time that the voters take a firm stand and kick out these who keep jumping for their personal gains and benefits.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 10:42 AM

    Get lost

    Friday, 05 February 2010 10:43 AM

    SB....Olympic Gold-Medallist in the Long-jump.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 07:12 AM

    Another Kattussek -..........

    Monday, 08 February 2010 12:44 AM

    WHAT A JOKER.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:00 AM

    What is the guarantee, SB will not have a Hop & Jump before the General Election.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:01 AM

    If Ranil throw a big bone, than MR offered, won't you come back Dissa Putha..

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:04 AM

    Always these rottern guys comes to power contesting on UNP ticket and Jump over to UPFA for the sake of their own benefits & pockets. SB is not exceptional ...well lets see his progress.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:05 AM

    You will badly lose mann. Get back to your seat and contest on UNP ticket, that is the right way.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:07 AM

    SB my best wishes for your extreeme bad defeat in Kandy this time.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 03:49 PM

    who is stupid?? Election monitors (both EU and Asian) have ruled out rigging. Ranil ruled out rigging. Election commissioner ruled out rigging. UN's BAn Ki Moon ruled out the same... what else is there to talk about. stop living in your dream world you COLOMBIANS!!

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:09 AM

    No. 1 joker of the present day politicians.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 03:51 PM

    Jail sentence was given by the Supreme Court, by Sarath N Silva under Chandrika's presidency!!! FOR YOUR INFORMATION!

    Friday, 05 February 2010 07:47 AM

    Hey...Mr...Who is the Man Of The Match Now...?.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 03:51 PM

    Why? SB have u not been able to be the president of SL from UNP? Try from UPFA and if fail then jump again into UNP. Shame!!

    Monday, 08 February 2010 03:01 AM

    They say a person's mouth would start to smell if that person lie etc. Wonder how smelly this mouth is

    Friday, 05 February 2010 07:48 AM

    It's very sad that MR give the opportunity to contest people who served jail sentence from his party.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 03:52 PM

    SO jayantha.. when SB was in YOUR party, UNP, wasnt he a crook? dint you say nice words about him when he won the highest number of preferential votes in the 2009 Central province elections??!!!!

    Friday, 05 February 2010 07:49 AM

    This time he will learn something.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 07:50 AM

    Congratulations! You have finally selected the correct side. God bless you!!!!

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:18 AM

    Join with the Man Of the Match and get out from the losing side.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:20 AM

    He is a crook by his name. So, he may do some crooked things before the elections. No one can trust him as he is a liar.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 07:53 AM

    SB why not "Hanguranketha"? Do you want to mislead the Kandy people this time? I don't think it will happen - shame on you man!!

    Friday, 05 February 2010 07:56 AM

    Another useless politician.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:02 AM

    Why does this man keep jumping?
    Or is he being given enough rope to hang himself politically this time?

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:03 AM

    Ahhh so thats why he crossed over...sky is a bit more clear now..

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:30 AM

    Sri Lankan politics will be full of scoundrels.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 04:17 PM

    Hey JUMPER, As a human, I'm very shame of you!!!!!
    In the long jump u got Gold-Medal, Hizbullah got Silver and Aarumukam got Bronze.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:10 AM

    A naked man.....

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:37 AM

    Now, you are with the right man who is as cunning as you are or master of all the 'cunnings'. Poor Ranil was too good and too weak that helped you to do all the sabotage before fleeing for ransom.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:37 AM

    Thank god the Slimy Banda will no more harm the UNP.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:13 AM

    Democracy is a form of Govt. of the Fools, for the Fools and by the Fools. SB you are my hero,make use of the system. You are a smart cookie.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 11:46 AM

    SLFPers better be careful. He may betray you by taking your vote and changing allegiance to another party. This man has a history jumping from side to side for post or position.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:26 AM

    Jayawewa mathitumani..obata suba anagathyak wewa !

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:28 AM

    Will it apply to Karu Jayasooriya as well ????

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:30 AM

    Yes we all know how patriotic your party is. It stole the mandate of the nation. What else can we expect?????

    First refer the dictionary to see the meaning of patriotic. Dont just use the word because your big bosses use it!!!!!

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:33 AM

    Oh God feel sorry for the people coming under udunuwar area

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:44 AM

    We have to wait and see which party to vote b'cos about the election time no one will know to which party you will be belonging to. Acc
    ordingly we shall vote for you.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:50 AM

    I hope the voters teach pole vaulters like you a good lesson.

    You were disloyal to CBK then u were disloyal to Ranil.

    Had Mahinda lost the election I am sure u would have had a lot of uncomplimentary things to say about him.

    You are a typical frog.

    Friday, 05 February 2010 08:55 AM

    So, there won't be helicopters filming house again!

    Friday, 05 February 2010 12:22 PM

    Seeni Bola, you are not welcome. This will be your last in politics. You can go to australia and live off your ill gotten wealth, and BTW don't forget to pay the lunch money you owe the driver from MARGA
