    True its a waste of money. But this parliament cannot function without a strong Govt. Lets wisely vote and bring a strong Govt. to power.

    What ever happens in the previous presidential election has showed us what the people wanted. Now its a more significant and important elections than the presidential elections even ( in my own opinion) People have to decide who will do the best for everyone as a commuinity. People will have pocket meetings, give away many free items ( free milk, free rice etc ) people should not decide on who to vote by just considering this factor. They should think he would be there for them, and will help the people throught his lifetime in the parliment. Atleast this time lets hope all of sri lankans get a good knowledge and make sure that we vote for the right person..God bless us all :)
