    Why is Mercantile not a Holiday !!! ... I'm voting for SF :(

    Monday, 25 January 2010 09:38 AM

    Mercantile sector is expected to celebrate the victory of SF at their respective work places. So no holiday for them!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:18 PM

    This is to party with Gen. SF with his victory....!!!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:40 AM

    I hope those SF supporters will wake up on this day 27th Jan and help Mahindra Rajapakse HE to build country. SF is just an illusion created by opposition.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 09:44 AM

    What about us? Private workers.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 09:48 AM

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:31 PM

    Yahh after some time, if MR elected you, me, we evrybody will be in a state to equal to Somalia pang.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:33 PM

    Go to work so that the country will be developped

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:33 PM

    What about the Private Sector? Others are granted a holiday and the private/mercantile sector is discriminated again.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:45 AM

    Let people celebrate the victory of SF reverse your decision

    celebrations will be viaolent free we want peace.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:34 PM

    In most developed countries Election day or the day after is NOT a holiday.
    Why do we need yet another holiday? in the land of Lotus eaters!!!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:35 PM

    Menaka, Do not Imagin, let him come to power to see how bad it is compaired MR regim

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:51 AM

    ane.. ethakota api???

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:00 AM

    25 years ago when the opposition politicians were showing a loaf of bread to the public from a election plat form the argument was a poor person will not be able to afford this loaf of bread in the future the way the govt was going on at that time.

    Today low income eats one a day where as the middle income people eats twice a day

    Meals for three times a day have become a luxury in our country

    If the country goes like this 20% population will die due to starvation and malnutrition another 40% will be able barely afford only a meal a daily after meeting all the bills

    Country is going to a disaster unless corruption is stopped

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:00 AM

    Its as if the private sector doesnt exist.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:14 AM

    Suren, you are dreaming within a dream. I think it is you who should wake up :D

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:16 AM

    Well of course there will be a change if SF comes. The question is how bad it is going to be :P

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:17 AM

    SF will definitely be in the President's Office on this day. This hoilday is not applicable to him.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:04 AM

    Holiday for SF winning celebration... hurray!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 02:22 PM

    Mr. Lakshitha; thanks a lot in trying to enlightning me according to your thinking; whilst respecting your right of belief please allow me to forge forward in my own way of reasoning. But please note that I do not condone each and everything of the present regime. Only I have serious doubts on the consequent "Change". At the end of the day we all have to win; cause we never depend on politicians for any favours. All the best to you.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:11 AM

    MR's victory celebration with more fun fares.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:13 AM

    why don't get holiday mercantile....................? api otuwoda..........? we have over 5 millions here in Sri Lanka.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:34 AM

    I agree with Steve's comment on starvation

    who an afford the basic food items in this country except the guyes who lives in pure bribes and basic gov salery

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:43 AM

    The big hype created by SF "exhaust fans" will come to zero with the results on 27th. We'll celebrate the victory for mother lanka and defeat for foreign funded "hate & revange" brigade.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:21 AM

    Grrrr..... So how about mercantile ???

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:47 AM

    SRI LANKA HAS BROKEN HIGHEST NUMBER OF HOILIDAYS IN THE WORLD.WHY CANT THEY HAVE ELECTION ON A SATURDAY OR SUNDAY.LIKE PREVIOUS ONE. THIS MAKE PEOPLE MORE LAZY.

    Tuesday, 26 January 2010 12:48 AM

    noticed that a lot more people are worried about a holiday on Wednesday rather that the future of the country, its this very approach that's seem to have in this mess in the first place, settling for mediocrity.Lets hope there's an end to violence and lawlessness first, I feel corruption may take a little longer.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:26 AM

    dear hen, stop clucking please. what has HE done since LTTE were crushed? His clan has robbed this country and the only hope of some justice for the people is to dot the rot on 26th. Be careful with your chewing gum. Perhaps you could switch to Betel leaves after the 26th for free. cheers!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:57 AM

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:42 AM

    MR is loosing his victory day by day becos his unwanted acts. PEople eyes are not closed, they obsever the movement of MR, Marvin & Duminda de Silva

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:45 AM

    hi steve, are you from Somalia?

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:47 AM

    Wake up Hen Ling. UNP vote base is larger than that of SLFP and allies historically. They are not extremists either; thats why they supported who ever they thought would do good; even to MR. Now with a proper alternative, and with the obvious disillusionment, Wednesday would see the real overwhelming majority of Sri Lankan party base in favor of UNP.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:37 AM

    Good, because after the trustworthy change inauguration we all need the day off....

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:47 AM

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:42 AM

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:43 AM

    Nice try! You can sleep early on 26th night as the first five results are issued.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 04:28 PM
