Anura KumaraThe Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has appointed parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake as the new party leader.

The appointment was approved at the party convention held today and he replaces Somawansa Amarasinghe as the party leader.

    What if the Democratic Party and the JVP become the majority and main opposition leaving the SLFP and the UNP in the dust? Oh, that would be sweet. Hey, this is just a couple of provinces, not the whole government, right? It will be a good way to find out how the two minor parties will handle power.

    At least, we’re still free to dream…
