Despite not being among the first four in UNP preferential list, Nadeesha Hemamali said the 11,000 votes she obtained could be considered a real victory being a new entrant to politics and to Matara.

“I achieved a real victory with 11,000 preferential votes though I wasn’t able to secure a slot in the Southern Provincial Council. This is my first time in politics. I was new to Matara having come all the way from Colombo. This had also affected my campaign,” she said.

Ms. Hemamali said her only objective was to serve the people and not earn from politics unlike most of the others.

“I won’t stop my political career and I will continue to engage with the people,” she said.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Very stale statement " Serving the people". People are fed up with these boring talks.

    Yes. You showed the true cinnamon power of the cinnamon brigade of the UNP.

    Nadeesha, Anarkali, and Geetha are not suitable for politics. unfortunately Geetha had it but no use other than quarrels.

    Nadeesha did a great job as a novice getting 11,000 votes beating experienced Anarkali.
    Nadeesha has to keep engagng with People to plan for next election.Stick with Matara electroate.

    COMING FROM COLOMBO, YOU CANT DO ANY WORK IN MATARA. BETTER SELECT COLOMBO OR ANOTHER PROVINCE CLOSER TO COLOMBO

    gayan Monday, 31 March 2014 05:54 PM

    11,000?, a familiar number for Nadeesha, specially at the beginning...

    “I won’t stop my political career and I will continue to engage with the people,” she said
