    If there is a donkey in the fray then people would have a good choice.

    weha - When total votes cast nor who they were for won't matter a dime and results which beggars belief, are the order of the day , is it any wonder apathy sets in?

    Now the political crooks might say that people do not vote and therefore we do not need elections. Half of the blame should go to the jackass who is leading the opposition.

    Wait for the results to know the real turnout....

    Voter turn out does not matter, the boxes are already stuffed and as in previous Elections the ruling party in the corrupt, lawless Banana Republic win. This is no surprise as we all have seen how they violated all the Election Laws. God save former democratic Sri Lanka.

    weha Saturday, 08 September 2012 08:04 AM

    May be people don't care may be people are fedup. but what they don't understand is that their vote is the only thing that can send the message.abstinence isn't going to improve anything.

    Silva Saturday, 08 September 2012 08:42 AM
