    Wow. What a landslide to pohottuwa. Looks like a brand new party by an MP defeated two major old parties headed by President and Prime Minusters.

    Election results still shows MR will still lose if he stands in Presidential election against a common candidates. Nothing has changed since he lost in 2015. It means nearly 50% of peopleagainsthe become resident than 45% want him to be. That is the BIG REALITY

    People wants a change, hope related authorities will take measures to reduce cost of living and improve the standard of living of our people. Also I wish there shall not be any racism in the country again. I of course I really hate discrimination as everyone does, it shall be understood, we all live a little time here so why wasting our time to fight and make war, united we stand divided we fall, yes we can! yes we can unite! god bless you all! god bless Sri lanka! :)

    I do not feel sorry for the people who live in the 222 SLPP LG Bodies because they've elected those criminals who will exploit and oppress them now. Good luck for me that I am living in a Municipal Council where intelligent voters are living.

    Me too Lord. We are lucky. Soon thugs like the Uva moron will roam around these 222 councils. Very sad.

    Votes were cast on communal line.

    Time for RW to handover the party to SP and go home - to "End"ia. Eight official trips in the last 3 years to pay obeisance to the Brahmins. Damm shame.
