    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 12:32 PM

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 12:32 PM

    SHAME HOW THIS REGIME STOPPED TAMILS FROM VOTING AND CREATED SO MUCH TO STOP SF WINNING
    GOD WILL PUNISH THEM DONT WORRY

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 12:38 PM

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 12:41 PM

    Guys lets say GOODBYEEEE to EX PRESIDENT MR

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 12:42 PM

    The opposition's "outsourced" the presidency to a wrong agent instead of handling it by themselves. The people will reject the "OUTSOURCED" option with vigour and enthusiasm never seen in the previous elections.

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 12:44 PM

    In your dreams!!

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 12:58 PM

    Taurus, since your reference is to Chnadrika may I remind you she was in the SLFP.... last time I checked so was MR.... baila kiyawanna epa

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 01:01 PM

    # MR will remain same

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 01:04 PM

    if even by accident if SF wins , that is the end of the country
    but it could nit happen

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 01:04 PM

    oh really? then I wonder why was the diaspora trying so hard to protect the LTTE and even go to the extent of burning models of MR in the streets of Europe! Do your research properly before you comment like you are Mr. KnowAll

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 01:06 PM

    Congradulations SF!!!

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 01:06 PM

    Then forget about voting forever :D
    This is not about finding the man in SL. You need to go for the local maximum. Else you are not helping the system at all.

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 01:22 PM

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 11:51 AM

    may the best man win!

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 02:18 PM

    I knew quite a few weeks ago about my eligibility to vote.So was all citizens of Sri Lanka. But why wait till 3.30 pm on the polling day to reveal it. There was enough and more time to check registers and get the names included, even through the Courts, and get the right to vote. Everything seems so fishy.

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 02:21 PM

    SF is gng to remove corruption from the country from tmrw on wards....

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 02:21 PM

    Who ever comes to power it is people's choice and we should respect that and go on with life. We have wasted enough time throwing garbage at each other. Let's start new regardless who gets elected.

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 12:12 PM

    You are right. Wait till the results come in. Then they will have to hide their faces where the sun does not shine.
