‘Dual Irresponsibility’ And Worse

By N Sathiya Moorthy In a self-destructive mission, the ruling coalition leadership(s) is continually proving that there are two governments in Sri Lanka, not just one.

Sirisena too shoots himself in the foot

By N Sathiya Moorthy   Independent of the ‘determination’ that the Supreme Court sends to President Maithiripala Sirisena on his constitutional query regarding the operation of the 19-A provision on the duration of his term, there can be no denying or going back on the fact that he has already shot himself in the foot, [...]
