    Nominations to MR is not guaranteed by MS as of yet, BUT IF he gives him nominations SL would be in turmoil…. the great Betrayal by MS will go down history… After MS stating that, had MR won the elections he would be 6 feet under and now to consider giving MR nominations is like killing ones self…

    Arjuna,Hirunika and a lot of SLFP politicos would end up contesting under the UNP… MR can have all the Wattakas n Patholas on his side…

    WE the voters who sent MR home ONCE can send him home AGAIN AND FOREVER… WAKE UP PEOPLE…

      We took a small step in the right direction on 8th January. Events now prove our work is far from completion. We have a long way to go.

      Even at this last moment, against all odds, I hope MY3 has not betrayed us. I hope he has a hidden card up his sleeve. That he will to the delight of hopeful Sri Lankans. I hope he will check-mate the defeated, desperate ex-dictator for good.

      Failing which January 8th revolution must rise again to rid our political system of corrupt, untrustworthy clowns. Be they from UPFA, SLFP or UNP.

      Cheers!

        Well said Ben, however the writing is on the wall. The re-emergence of the dark forces lokks inevitable. The weak Yahapalanaya is ever so meek at the moment to give into the demands of the dark forces. The knives are being sharpened again by the dark angels of MARA.

        If anyone has any mettle in them or any kind of morality left, they must abondon this putrified and cancerous UPFA. Unfortunately UNP is only marginally better but would be so much better if only Ranil would go. I hope Arjuna, Hirunika, Duminda Dissanayake and M.K.D.S.Gunawardena will leave the UPFA along with anyone who has any kind of self-worth still left in them.

      Yes, you are right that MS has not confirmed or denied the statement of UPFA Secretary of giving nomination MR to contest on SLFP ticket. Also he commented that on 8th January people defeated autocratic and corrupt MR and his cohorts. He made it clear that he would not give a back door entry to familial rule and corrupt defeated leader.

          Sumanasekera,

          Rajapakse is another one of those typically crooked
          Sri Lankan politicos. Fair minded people
          have suffered for decades under them, waiting
          hopelessly for a change.it may take a while yet,
          but we won’t let the likes of you drag us further
          into the abyss. So you, who refuses to accept
          the righteous path, are an enemy of the people.

    The people who wanted a change from Mahinda (SLFP *anti_Mahinda gp), UNP, JVP, TNA, Musim Parties, JHU, UP country Tamil parties etc.) remain as before. They have not voted for a person Maithiri but to remove Mahinda. When Mahinda was President, he used maximum force, govt resources, violence, threat, money, vote rigging etc. But he couldn’t win. Though none of the criminals, drug dealers, corruptors are not brought under justice within past six months, people are aware that Mahinda & Co are criminals and thugs. Maithiri may change but people cannot be fooled.

    I want Mahinda back. Put aside your personal anger and think about common good for the nation.

    Without Mahinda the country will be doomed.

      The common of nation is not synonymous with handling over the country, its people and assets to a rogue and roguish family. WE have replaced Prabhakaran with Prabhakaran II from the South. At least the No: I had some principles and a vision for his people despite his evil ways. The only vision of No 2 is ego, his family and filling his personal treasury with national assets: Hell with the people that he claimed that he was fighting for. We saw it in the feudal system that ran for 4-years. Even GODs rejected him as they saw his true nature.

    Who knows BEST of the doings of Mr. MR other than the present President Mr. MS? He acted on the call of his HEART and abandoned Mr. MR for what he knew for a long long period of time. Mr. MS by winning the Presidency was able to win the hearts and minds of the majority (6.2 million) against all the odds he faced along with the groups who laboriously worked, 24/7, towards his triumph over evil. That 6.2 millions knew very well what Mr.MR, his family and the cronies did after winning the war in 2009 and that is the very reason such a majority of voters went against him even forgetting certain development works that were going on. That “Winning” of the Presidential election goes to prove, the 6.2 million who voted against Mr. MR knew, in their HEARTS and MINDS, to what extent the previous regime was corrupt in all respects. That “CONVICTION” and “AWARENESS” were more RELEVANT and IMPORTANT than any “PROOF” in a Court of Law. So, if Mr.MS agrees to nominate such a person to contest the elections, I would say, he is a WILLING PARTNER in setting OFF THE HOOK of a “Corrupted Leader” who should be brought before the peoples” court” to answer for all the corruptions, mismanagement and swindling of the county’s national resources.

    This man who has “signed” that public announcement as regards the “agreement” to nominate Mr. MR is also a “MOST WANTED” among a whole lot of others in his camp. These. “alleged” criminals will not “REST” a moment and will work at break neck speed to get out of the public wrath. Will MR. MS who “answered” his call of heart and mind and stood with the 6.2 million “BETRAY” the trust and confidence placed on him on that historic day – 8th January 2015? My call is: JUST DON’T GIVE IN. STAND BY YOUR CONVICTIONS. SHOW YOUR STRENGTH BY THE PEOPLE. DON’T ALLOW ROOM FOR THEM TO CALL YOU “MARU SIRA”. INSTEAD LET THEM CALL YOU “SIRA MARU” (meaning “Sira – fine man”). To ALL OTHERS who show frustration: HAVE COURAGE OF CONVICTION AND FIGHT FOR A GOOD CAUSE. IT IS WORTH THE FIGHT FOR THE “RIGHT” (SMMA in BUDDHIST terms) AND LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE FOR THAT IS “RIGHT”.

    Great news, at least a few struck to their guns. Arjuna always speaks his mind, and he with this young politicians can steer the ship to the shore, when the captain was in a delusion, playing into pirates hands.

    There were three lots in action since MR lost in Jan 8: Premajayantha, Yapa, etc. and Co were sent to work from within acting like real Party faithful while Babithira and co to do a gimmick as a confused lot sitting on the wall, and the other like Weejeweera, Sajiin, etc. as MR loyal from the day one. But all three have one object in mind that is to scuttle MS’s leadership and replace MR by any means. The issue for them, not people, not party but safeguarding each and every one from their illegal and corrupt deals they did abundantly thinking MR would not be unseated for a life time. Pity, all had happened in a blink of a time and now only thing they were able to cash in to come to power is LTTE and minorities.

    Those who support MR have no problem with corruption or crimes as long as they were able to enjoy some spoils out of these mega deals. Are we going to go back to see the Chief Justice and President travelling to Vatican like a king and slave selling citizen judicial right completely to political thugs that have no human values.

    Whether win or loose, young folks fight for what you believe right. Just because some ones with vested interest backs MR, don’t get perturbed by that, they have some hidden cynical reasons to support MR, you have many sound and valid reason to oppose MR,… and even MS if he has derailed in the name of party….a good leader looks first for the best interest of the people and country, not the interest of a mafia gang.

    What a waste of people’s money to elect Maitripala Sirisena the betrayer , the people were suffering under the Rajapakse so they threw him out ,and elected My3 ,and now he is giving back the power to RAjapassa .
    Has My3 been blackmailed?
    Is My3 scared of being exposed with Rajapasa s files on him ?
    Why is My3 giving into the RAjapassa group ,first denying and then bowing to his demands ?
    There is something fishy in this ,if My3 is a clean man he should come out and tell the people who elected him and pushed him up to the top post.

    Even though RAjapassa lost he has always been acting as if he is the President.

    NIRMALAn says “Put aside your personal anger and think about common good for the nation. Without Mahinda the country will be doomed.”

    I want to ask MIRMALAn, are you raving mad to say that Rajapaksa had “the common good” in mind. The whole world knows that MR stole national wealth, misused national resources, brought disgrace to the country internationally, and acted as if the country was his fiefdom. Why should there not be “personal anger” at a thief who stole the meagre meal of the poor? How will this country be “doomed” when it is liberated from the clutches of this uncivilized man?

    CBK wants to destroy the Sinhala-majority monopoly.

    Ranil wickramasinghe and Mangala Are in the same camp.

    Because of that UNP-CBK group should not be voted by Sinhala People.

      Now there is a clear division of politics – on one side a coalition of politicians (MS+Ranil+CBK+Mangi) who will be robbing the country and sell it to any body — on the other side a coalition of politicians (MR+SLFP++++) who also will rob the country but at the same time develop it also without selling it internationally – It is up to the voters to make a choice.

      Please do not go by the Rumors that will be circulated freely – think and vote

        It’s up to the people to not allow either
        scenario to happen. Politicians won’t have
        limitless powers if the people aren’t passive
        or stupid

      So, it is all about monopoly…and… it will have no limit until SL turned into a Sinhala Buddhist monolithic Country. That is not SL which I know of, only a few fools would dream about it.

    Isn’t the bloke in the photo, who unleashed his Security guards to bash up the St Johns Secondary School boys , because they hit their Tennis Ball in to Ranatunga Walauwa?..

    Got a bit side tracked.

    The latest news in the Wellala Gardens and the surrounds is Rantunga , has organized even Bodhi Sira to join his grand coalition of Ranil, Whisky Madam, Mangalan and Ranatunga himself.

    And it was arranged on the weekend, under the guise of toasting Whisky Madam for good health and longevity on her 70 th..

    It was at Mangalan’s Kurunduwatta pad.

    But Sira didn’t turn up.

    When Mangalan called Sira’s direct line, the aide said Sira was in bed with stomach pains..May he didn’t want to drink Champers with Mangalan and Ranil.

    And the Field Marshall is still doing the due diligence.

    TNA doesn’t get a mention though.

    May be TNA is busy fending off the LTTE cadres who want nominations to the North as well as the East.

    And Suren Surendran and the Reverend wouldn’t like it..Or would they?…

      “May be TNA is busy fending off the LTTE cadres who want nominations to the North as well as the East. “

      A few moons ago you wrote there was no dividing line between LTTE and TNA. Why have changed your mind?

        Dear Native,

        You are right , mate…

        That was before the LTTE Big Honchos in London ( Corporate LTTE )joined Vellala Sambandan and Apprentice Abraham officially in front of Solheim.

        Now you know what I mean.

        It is the same like us,, man.

        It ultimately has come down to Vellala Vs Dalits on your side too…Officially this time and in the open…..
