President Mahinda Rajapaksa told journalists that no presidential election would be held till 2016 at a meeting at D. A.Rajapaksa Maha Vidyalaya, Medamulana on March29.

He said so after he and Mrs. Shiranthi Rajapaksa, and MP Namal Rajapaksa had cast their votes (at the polling centre at D.A Rajapaksa Maha Vidyalaya) at the Southern Provincial Council election.

The president said that the people were taking intelligent decisions and, as a result, the UPFA would gain landslide victories at the Western and Southern Provincial Council elections. He said the people of this country respected democracy and would not betray the motherland.

When asked about the Geneva resolution, he said the government would hold elections democratically and the people would vote intelligently.
The President had a friendly chat with the people who had come to vote.  (Sanath Gamage)

    A good Machiavellian move to put the opposition off guard. The Kola Aliya will go to sleep taking the words of Lokka as Gospel Truth. Occasionally waking up to tighten his grip on the party and to find scape goats for the defeat to keep him amused. Deiyo Sakki. via DM iPad app

    Sri Lanka has a high literacy rate. IQ is questionable going by these election results.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 31 March 2014 03:20 AM

    Dear President do not waste money for election as far as possible. March forward with your good work for this country locally and internationally. At the same time if there any weakness your will be able to correct it as well.

    Getting cold feet?

    Abu Jaheel Monday, 31 March 2014 03:50 AM

    Now who holds the ladle to serve the biryani to the family, extended family and artificial family?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 31 March 2014 04:11 AM

    Be careful Hirunika also could be backed by Chandrika and may be sometimes, you may have to pack up soon before 2016.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 31 March 2014 04:13 AM

    Mr. President you threw out Bandaranayake Family completely and inherited the chair. Just think for a while, same thing could happen to you as the Iron Lady Hirunika is in-house now.
