    How could the Elections Commissioner have declared anyone a 'winner,' when the 'misdeeds' he mentioned had, in fact, occurred?

    if there was nothing unfair about the election and no violence etc to report, then why was the elections commissioner held under house arrest and not allowed to speak to the public except to make the pre-recorded statement? you lankans are a bunch of fools.
