    One of the JHU condition is not to talk to LTTE until they lay down arms.

    Will that happen?

    We will get some more bombs in colombo and war will start again

    Apparently Mahinda has decided not to sign the pact with JHU after CBK attacked him for aligning with extremist forces. This is an interesting development.

    Mr. Rajapakse changes his policies at the same frequency as he changes his clothes! The way it is he has the biggest wardrobe!!

    MR may use JVP & JHU to attack AB & CBK but it would back fire within the strong party men but may be attractive for neutral voters.

    However Ranil may win with a margin of over 500,000 (52%)majority votes if Thonda decides support him.

    Sri Lanka Prime Minister Backs Down From Signing Election Deal With Buddhist Party

    COLOMBO, Sri Lanka--Sri Lanka`s prime minister will not sign an agreement with the country`s influential Buddhist monks that would secure him the party`s support for president in return for keeping Tamil Tiger rebels out of government, senior officials said Monday.

    Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapakse, the ruling party`s presidential candidate, was set to sign the pact Tuesday, pledging not to pursue any peace deal that allows the rebels power in the federal government.

    But the deal was now off, senior officials close to both Rajapakse and the monk-led National Heritage Party said on condition of anonymity, as they were not authorized to speak to the media.

    The officials said the decision was taken after President Chandrika Kumaratunga criticized Rajapakse for signing a similar agreement with the Marxist party.

    The National Heritage Party said last week that Rajapakse had given assurances that the government would rework the fundamentals of the peace process and retain control over Tiger-held areas. The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam have demanded greater autonomy in the areas in the north and east _ parts of which they control _ as a condition for resuming peace talks stalled since 2003.

    Rajapakse is the ruling party`s candidate in presidential elections due before Nov. 22. Kumaratunga has served two terms and is constitutionally barred from another.

    Kumaratunga has long been pushing a plan to share power with the Tigers in a bid to permanently end Sri Lanka`s two-decade civil war.

    So who is the hero now. It seems poor Ranil has been pushed out of the driving seat. I thought it was Ranil who wants to share power with tigers. Now it seems the Chandrika has stolen the agenda from him. Mahinda must first fight CBK to protect the SLFP policies from her before JVP. Otherwise he does not deserve to lead the country.

    Mahinda seems like yet another politician who vacilitates....sad, but this is the story of Sri Lanka.

    If this is the best JHU can do at present I salute their hard decision.

    Must have been unpalatable yet it sounds better to let RW come through the back do

    Talk of RW I still do not understand how anyone can even think of voting for RW

    If only they know the damage he caused to us the Sinhala in the eyes of the foreigner who know nothing about our politics in Sri Lanka?

    SLFPers should not allow CBK to put anyone to defeat MR. All SLFPers will be with MR, except GK-liberal Amunu and Atikehel from B-dulla.
