    So, discovery of false ballet papers from a toilet, attacking a high ranking elections officer are not serious incidents? Jolly Good. Next time we can expect nil serious incidents!!

    This is the time computer gilmart coming to the scene (From closing of poling to announcing of results).

    When compared to previous elections voter turnout is low. Mainly because people are fed up of these "Politicians" in Srl Lanka.
