    Will never happen. They will have the same portfolios under different names. (State Ministers, Senior Ministers, Distrcit ministers etc.etc)

    The term `The size of the cabinet` is misleading when we have a countless number of deputies and non-cabinet bandits lining their pockets from public money. The only, only reliable/acceptable indicator is how many of these thugs are leeching the public purse, including all types of cabinet, non-cabinet and deputy vermin.

    `Pruning the cabinet` means nothing at all. Tell me I am wrong on this.

    It`s wonderful to go to the Pre-1977 cabinet size but then we also have to go to the pre-1977 election system (first past the post, British system).

    It is impossible to Reduce the cabinet size while hanging on to the JR-Traitor Ranil Propotional Representation system of elections.

    Only Prabhakaran and Traitor Ranil will benefit by such a move.

    Govt. is nuts if they think they can reduce the cabinet size while hanging on to the PR system.

    Hope this is an April Fool`s joke.
