    Let not our greed over take the power of ballot.
    We SRI LANKANs must learn to practice true democracy (not verbal democracy) with true to our own conscienceness.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:54 AM

    Opposition should be alert againt poll rigging in North and East by pro-grovernment. MR led government is trying to make all people fool..Be alert always..dont beleive government false promises..Pray God help SL and her people by changing regime and protect demo...

    Now government is trying to get a good name, saying peaceful Poll. You must say it to your own.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:00 PM

    MR is really good in this kind of statements. Credibility is a something you have to earn. MR has lost our credibility he had in 2005. We need a change now. Law and order in this country not statements.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:03 PM

    Before General come to the PE, all the other elections conducted under UPFA government were very peaceful except VAYAMBA election under CBK. Pls. recall there weren't any curfew after elections on this government. But remember in UNP era curfew is a must after election.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:09 PM

    LOL .Reminds us of the days when the LTTE used to declare a ceasefire!!!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:14 PM

    In favour of SF one click gets 2-3 points and for favour of government comments + points goes as - what a joke !!!!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:15 PM

    Oh...Government has called for a peaceful election tomorrow?" I can't believe"...anyway I feel sorry for the people live in Sri Lanaka....day by day country is going to hell...

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:16 PM

    correct or as usual the hoodwinking the people

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:16 PM

    Mr Rajapakse, It is just too late for any redemption. You had all the time to put this process right and you were more worried about your image and the family. We have now decided to give you a fantastic farewell !!!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:17 PM

    u r a bigger joker my dear friend, where did u learn???

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:18 PM

    we can't expect peaceful election from the government. They'll do whatever they want to win this election.!!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:32 PM

    Jayawewa General Sarath Fonseka, please bring peace to the country.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:33 PM

    Hahahahah................ seriously.............???????? now u come up with that...........????????

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:33 PM

    Absolutely truth

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:39 PM

    government breaks all laws and call for peaceful elections.

    what a joke??

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:45 PM

    Joke of the year

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:45 PM

    The only thing they are totally committed to is ensuring that they stay put...in power.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:46 PM

    Free and Democratic election? heh!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 12:57 PM

    What peaceful election when you have hundreds of MR’s rouges in the streets...

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:03 PM

    Most of the guys in this blog are planning to celebrate defeat of a great Political leader. If your dream does not come true please do not claim that it was rigged in favour of MR. You have to recognize that all governments before MR were "FAILED GOVERNMENTS". Those leaders of failed governments have OUTSOURCED the presidency to a GENERAL. Wrong choice and a wrong strategy. We all have to wait to see the final verdict by the people of Sri Lanka on the 26th. So put a clamp on your expectations for now.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:04 PM

    finally the govt says this.....

    doesnt this make the govt more suspicious on their plans for tomorrow...

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:12 PM

    last time they paid the LTTE and won the elections this time the boxes are stuffed coz nobody was willing to be bought by them
    but wish our true srilankans will vote in numbers and give us a change

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:15 PM

    We as the citizens of Sri Lanak request for peaceful election from the government

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:26 PM

    See, who is talking about peaceful election, when this government is actually doing the opposite.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:26 PM

    Preach peace in Public and Preach violence in Private. I am sad for Sri Lanka because it has given the liberty of vote even for the gullibles. The people who wants good governance will have to wait for a long time until then we will be ruled by the "Best of the Cunning".

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:36 PM

    My my - the short memories that Sri Lankan's have!!. Ingrates!!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:36 PM

    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:43 PM

    Gentleman and soldier against a seasoned Political Heavyweight, Problem is that one of the both gentleman has the Stars shining in his path. He was born in the Chinese Lunar year of the Tiger 1950. This is the golden year of the Tiger, Tigers are Honest and Valiant !!!! Master Mahinda, had his golden years, Year of the Rooster, Kukula is nice and fat its time to eat the Rooster or simply disappear into the jungle as a Walikukula, as for his thugs, time to parade them in the high streets for about 2 weeks with a poster on their heads.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:38 PM

    Your words, do not reflect your actions!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:53 PM

    Wara were you sleeping in 2001 when 10 muslim youths lost their lives???????

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:54 PM

    Free and fair elections!!!!!!
    Seems to be an April fools joke!!!!!
    Probably joke of the yr!!!!!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 02:05 PM

    Monday, 25 January 2010 02:17 PM

    When government says something they do the right opposite therefore tomorrow you will see lot of malpractices at the presidentail election.

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 01:06 AM

    Ane da kiyanne...

    Monday, 25 January 2010 03:47 PM

    Very peaceful election is a good prove to a real democracy.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:22 AM

    i would have an easier time believing in the tooth fairy than this!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:28 AM

    My foot. Now we are more worried cos Gov will do exacly the opposite. God save ths country for another 48 hours. SF will bring peace, justice and prosperity to this wonderful land or ours.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:31 AM

    but unp & jvp know better how to loot the votes of innocent people by intimidating and using false propaganda.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:47 AM

    While being misleading the country...... "Now government has opened eyes for a peaceful election"......Announcing for peace also their side and creating panics & pressure also their side...... Who will belive this? My self and my family ,relation are strong SLFP and have been supporting years and years. But this time we have changed our mind because of all of this. We think that its a very wrong decsion in supporting MR again. . So Good Bye SLFP forever..... We NEED CHANGE...... ENough is Enough....

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:49 AM

    i'm sure there wont be any violence coz already the ballot boxese are stuffed and they already know the results thats why they are so sure that they can have a peacefull election coz already the needs have been attended to.
