    My argument was not of his profession but of the foolishness of our politicos who don't even learn from the past.What a stupid move !

    Once it happened in Colombo and a Threewheel driver became the Mayer.Our politicians are so foolish that they never learn a lesson.

    Ramazan Wednesday, 21 February 2018 09:19 AM

    HOW FOOLISH ARE MAHARAGAMA VOTERS TO VOTE FOR AN INDEPENDENT PARTY WHILE THERE ARE SO MANY ALTERNATIVE PARTIES. POLITIC SLAVES.

    AV Wednesday, 21 February 2018 12:18 PM

    Totally Agreed.As a voter of Maharagama I feel a shame of my co-voters.

    Terry Wednesday, 21 February 2018 01:06 PM

    The voters of Maharagama have dug up their own grave by voting for an unknown independent group. The caliber and their incapability is there to be seen and I can already imagine the fate of Maharagama town with these type of people running the council

    These guys look better and innocent than the thugs and roughs elected under pohottu party in other places. Maharagama people are not so stupid, they must have elected these innocent people after proper evaluation and knowing they can serve better.

    The guy who is wearing a tie must be there driver or the assistant who is carrying the files.

    DailyMirror, Dont be Evil.. Publishing these pictures with their full names, resident addresses and NID numbers along with their signatures seems pretty illegal. At least censor some parts. You should only report news, you are not allowed to violate privacy of the citizens.

    People should have the freedom and elections should be recalled.
