    Hope we do not get a stooge like the former commissioner Dayanada Dissanayake who cannot be traced now. He disappeared for 2 to 2 hours when the 2010 polling count was in progress.

    Even I have not meet/or talk to you, I heard lot about you even before you talk the A/L exams about your abilities as well as straight forward behaviour. You have done a fabulous job. I wish you all the best.

    An impartial, serving Government Official should be appointed to this position as a secondment. Deshapriya attended many government and private functions and uttered many things that are not related to his job. He acted more like a politician than a Chairman of an independent commission.
