    This will be the results all over the country. The people are simply fed up of the crooked UNP.

    Jason Saturday, 12 October 2019 09:34 AM

    Funny thing is SLPP and UNP both are full of crooked members

    Slaves we Srilankan never ever can't ahead All the main two party voters are Slaves!!! Sad news 20 th Century Slaves.

    Bakaladasa Friday, 11 October 2019 11:43 PM

    Comprehensively? Where’s the “comprehesivity” ? They got only 56% vs UNPs’ 24%,, I turned propohottu recently - but disappointed !

    Jehan Saturday, 12 October 2019 12:04 AM

    Now elpitiya people are going to be labeled as corrupt, slaves, cows, etc. On 17th all sri lankans will be labeled as corrupt, slavish and idiotic. That is how disconnected UNP is.

    SRIKIT GUNAWARDANA Saturday, 12 October 2019 12:05 AM

    Not a loss for UNP. 50,000 voter strength? one rep per 1,000 persons? It is a loss for JVP though.

    Andrew Silva Saturday, 12 October 2019 06:23 AM

    It's up to the people to save them selfs or end up in hell. Good luck Sri Lanka.

    Venom Saturday, 12 October 2019 06:39 AM

    But then Elpitiya was always always a Buffalo area like someone above mentioned- buffaloes with five horns!!!

    Dee Saturday, 12 October 2019 06:56 AM

    Congratulations for winning the elections in the 'Democratic socialist Republic of Elpitiya'.

    Manu Saturday, 12 October 2019 07:24 AM

    RW shut your boasting mouth now at least. People are going to send the UNPers on retirement soon. Get ready for it. Rob some more money and bank.

    CLEAR INDICATION OF THE VICTORY OF GOTA

    Sammy Saturday, 12 October 2019 07:36 AM

    Mr Observer, Mahindas 59% was SLPP SLFP. Now SLPP SLFP is almost 70% there. UNP was 40% in that election. Now they are down to 24%. You didnt observe that?

    Sumi Saturday, 12 October 2019 08:27 AM

    @ Bakaladasa. Comprehensiveness is when UNP is now down to 24% in Elpitiya from their 40% in last presidential election, and SLPP SLFP is now almost 70% from last time 59% what MR got. Congratulations for being on the the right side now.
