    Obvious reason being that the public has lost faith in the system after the controversial presidential elections.

    Naturally people are so disgusted with the present administration and its elections rigging , violence and manipulation. What has become of Sri Lanka??? Our forefathers must be turning in their graves.

    Experts in Governement will change this by end of the day by their expert rigging as they did for presidential election.

    Also, people don't want to send the same bunch of crooks to Parliament again.

    Good. It's high time that Sri Lankans show their displeasure on politics and elections.

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 06:29 PM

    Why can't Sri Lanka computerize the casting of votes via a central election office. This will avoid mishandling and looting of other's votes. When we witness the visuals of a Sri Lankan election, it reminds us of a war-zone, with so many security personnel and weapons ...

    very good i think the people understand what is happening here in sri lanka..No use of using the VOte nothing will happens...No use...We have to take care of our selves...
