    There is much talk to say that aid being received are stored in local politicos' houses and being 'mishandled.' WW must be afraid the votes will go the other way in the aftermath of this situation.

    Why fear.

    Commonsense Sunday, 06 February 2011 03:43 PM

    If it is its good move..
    Actually I think most of people don't need any election any stage.These elections are needed just for ministers of government and opposition to improve their shares.

    JD Sunday, 06 February 2011 04:20 PM

    Provide basic facilities to flood victims............. before requesting election commissioner to postpone election........

    Anemagekata Sunday, 06 February 2011 05:20 PM

    Flood terrorism!

    suwantha Sunday, 06 February 2011 06:53 PM

    you are quite right becourse people are waiting for you .you like people should take full blame for electing such incapable government.

    Anton Sunday, 06 February 2011 07:11 PM

    Who is this man? Is he the President/Prime Minister/Senior Minister? Shouldn't he go through the proper channels for such a request. Isn't he doing things beyond his mandate!

    lanka hamaruru Sunday, 06 February 2011 07:43 PM
