    WK Costa, Do not count it in the same way as that of MR. SF also got 4.2M. But that is Presidential election and at National level. This is parliamentary polls and at present at district level if the election laws not changes. As such MR will becomes an MP but his unpopular goons will lose as votes will splits between, UNP, SLFP and MR faction.

    naween Tuesday, 28 April 2015 01:33 PM
