    Although the President has the right to call for a presidential election after 4 years, when he can stay for 6 years, it is his paramount duty to explain to the country why it is absolutely necessary for such an early election, spending such a large sum of our money collected from the people. If not we have to take it as an act done purely for selfish reasons and not for the benefit of the country.

    Is there any need of a election commissioner or a department of elections? This is why all Sri Lankan voters to open their eyes. Where are we heading to? Police, Finance, Military, Elections everything is him. Very soon remove all the buddha statues from the place of worship and replace his. Dhammika Perera

    Who decides on the dates of the Election? President of the country or the Election Commissioner?

    Observer Tuesday, 11 November 2014 05:25 AM

    Seriously......the date of the elections should be already set in the constitution. Not decide dates according to the astrologers or convenience to the President (any President). Sri Lanka has a long way to go still......
