The govt goons will be in action. Election Commissioner will again declare that he wants to retire as he cannot control the situation. But come Monday, he will be back in office and more revitalised.

Good luck for the patriotic Lankans, for such a lot of holidays.
More holidays than the working days, how companies afford to pay wages. These are all politician's blunders.

Another holiday added to many other holidays. Sri Lanka is known for the highest number of ministers in a government, and now, the highest number of holidays. What a paradise!

Let us be realistic. Large numbers of public servants deployed on election duty, in locations far away from their normal stations, will be travelling back home only on Thursday. Quite a number of them would still be in transit, during the course of Friday. Thus, in the circumstances, it is only a fraction of the workforce who might be in a position to report to work on Friday. Looked at from this perspective, doesn't the decision to declare Friday, a public holiday, make sense?
