    Why UPFA could not comply with election rules. The person who finalized should take the responsibility. That person is so irresponsible, and should be dealt with.

    I fear those officials who rejected the nomination papers would become traitors or conspirators against the democratic rpublic of SL.

    I suspect this may be govt plane to tackle Douglas & Thondaman.

    Chandimani Thursday, 27 January 2011 11:49 AM

    No ! It is not OPPOSITION Sabotage. This is a Sabotaj done by the Rival people inside the government. At the correct time, they leave to their Mother-party. They wait till govt party dialuted !!!

    sltk2004 Thursday, 27 January 2011 11:49 AM

    May be this is a Western conspiracy?

    Chandimani Thursday, 27 January 2011 11:50 AM

    Possibility of cancelling ALL nominations submitted. (Law provides for this) and may call fresh nominations.... possible....

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 27 January 2011 12:35 PM

    Coming events cast their shadows: precursor for the UPFA to be rejected by the people this time.

    Tarzan Thursday, 27 January 2011 01:23 PM

    Sorry Pal, most of the members in the UNP and UPFA are uneducated.
