European Union Heads of Mission in Colombo expressed the importance of Sri Lanka’s Presidential election process being peaceful, credible and transparent.


“Heads of Mission recall the EU’s longstanding conviction that a peaceful environment is essential for credible elections. Sri Lankan citizens must be free to choose their leaders without violence or fear. All parties have a role in upholding Sri Lanka’s strong democratic tradition," the EU statement said.

    Yes all Sri lankans should vote peacefully and have the right to vote for their leader. However remember the definition of rights and interest are two different things. Singhalese. Tamils. Muslims of Sri lanka has the right to be Sri lankan no matter what but if they have different interest such as Tamil Eelam (TNA) and Muslims wanting the east sorry all Sri lankans should vote against all these evil forces as the right and the interest cannot get mixed up
