Yahapalana Marriage To Continue In Reduced Circumstances

The unity arrangement between the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and the United National Party (UNP) will be rebooted once President Maithripala Sirisena returns to the island upon the conclusion of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).

Minister of Finance and Media Mangala Samaraweera, who is currently in the UK speaking to a group of journalists at a private gathering in last 20th evening disclosed that the current impasse with respect to the reshuffling of the cabinet is likely to be resolved when the President returns.

Samaraweera, however, said that a few ministers who voted in favor of the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe earlier this month would probably join the ranks of the Opposition.

Earlier this week a committee made of SLFP ministers appointed by President Maithripala Sirisena in his capacity as the leader of that party announced that efforts are underway to patch up differences with the UNP and give the unity government a second chance.

Committee Chairman Sarath Amunugama said that it was decided to seek a fresh agreement with the UNP once the President returns to the island on Tuesday (24th). He added that a set of recommendations have been drawn up which, following perusal by the President will be submitted to the UNP. It is expected that eventually the General Secretaries of the two parties will sign an agreement paving the way for the cabinet reshuffle.

It was reported that a senior member of the UNP had echoed these views, stating that the party is awaiting these proposals. Once agreement is reached the unity government can continue, he had opined.

    Wimal Weerawansa must be hung in public in Galle Face green and hit his toes with poles and rods for the damage he and his family did to this country including introudicing immoral behaviour and plundering billions of public wealth.

      I couldn’t stop laughing at the absurdity of your comment. Seriously, this is one of the most vulnerable comments I have seen for a long time against Wimal. I am sure Wimal will also laugh if he reads this.

        Champa: Are you related to Wimal Weerawansha, getting money, salary or former girl friend. Most know what he did. but, the Sri lankan LAw enforcement is biased and favored towards politicians.So he may try his fortunes. Otherwise, Three teams of Palhoru.

          I am not related to him. How about you? Are you related to Buddhadasa or Anura Kumara? If you have forgotten Wimal is not a part of Yahapalanaya to have favours. He was already in the prison for 3 months. That was the longest period for any sitting MP so far. Stay here until 2020 Jimmy ok. I want you to see something.

    Sri Lanka was a debt free country 25 years ago. Now thanks to Mahinda Rajapakse it is the most debt ridden country in the world. Mahinda spent only half of the loans the rest he and his family kept for themselves. This Yamapalana Nade will never catch them but will protect them as they also do the same thing. The bond scam is one example.

      Well said! The good guys came to catch the rogues, but sadly the rogues caught the good guys.
      The village idiots will never ever learn as they are daily brainwashed by the two despicable TV channels namely Hiru and derana.
      Sirasa should be banned from broadcasting as they have time and again sided with the corrupt.

      Why Ranil’s debt and borrowing are discussed. IT is you americans and europenas who are responsible for making those. Mahinda Rajapakse sent lot of moey to your country too as investment and as for buying Senators and lobbying firms.

      25 years ago it was no a country, it was a war zone where people were blown up by bus loads. Best thing about those days were staying at Taj for $25 a night and G/F hotel for $28 per night.

    The politics has essentially become a non-topic for the media and more importantly, for the general public of Sri Lanka.

    Most of those politicians seen on media has been made ridicule of but they themselves have made themselves court jesters of the first kind with their media statements and actions.

    I for one, cannot really fathom how this comedian drama can be resurrected to the real life truth of things that you and I face. However the indications are that these “parliamentarian Baboons” will keep on making merry until the entire world collapses beneath them.

    when the two top guns of the cohabitation government are at loggerheads, the minute elements will always try to b do better, thus creating a spiraling effect. This the situation that the current government has gotten into now, i.e. going into a never ending spiral causing what is referred to as a “black hole” effect in astrophysics.

    In summary, The concept of the ” yahapalana” government to continue in reduced circumstances will ONLY be good for the UNP and a few SLFP politicians who’d agree to such a suicidal way-forward plan for the next eighteen months, and not have a future beyond that point.

    You do not need to be a soothsayer or anyone with astronomical forecasting powers to deduce the end result.

    Well, let all the astrologers make their predictions, and yet let us see how and what prevails, at the end.
