    The change expected by the people was possible because of the fearless attitude and honest work of Mr.Deshapriya. We owe our sincere gratitude. It would be a big favour if he can finish the general election and retire.

    You must have been under tremendous pressure during the last election. We know your hands were tied and your record of avoiding fraudulent acts of commission at the behest of those rascals in the discharge of your duties is indeed praiseworthy. We hope that this time round you can be more strict. Thank you

    You Sir! Deserve Our Utmost Respect! Kudos!

    Brave Officer. read every news from him. Sad , he is moving before general election. Should be appointed to constitution council by President

    Chryshan Friday, 26 June 2015 12:53 PM

    Its very important you being in this position until 19A is fully implemented and also until the general Elections are over. We need somebody trust worthy and who will not support a party for money. There will be lot of money thrown from all sides during this election and its really important to have an independent election commissioner.

    Bala Friday, 26 June 2015 12:54 PM

    A job well done - thank you. All the very wishes on your retirement - when the jokers decide to agree on the19A Commissions. What useless set of MPs to decide our future.

    ziyard Friday, 26 June 2015 01:03 PM

    good luck and thank you for conducting a free and fair election on the 8th january
