The United National Front (UNF) and the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) will unveil their new manifestos for the upcoming General Election in mid March, party members said.
UNF General Secretary Tissa Attanayaka told Daily Mirror Online that their manifesto will include improving the living standards of the people, improving the economy and eliminating corruption. “The manifesto was drawn up by a group of professionals and has all the members consent,” Mr. Attanayaka said.
The DNA will also launch its manifesto in the coming 10 days, party member Tiran Alles said. (JN)
Let us all be honest and admit that no Politician in Sri Lanka, whatever his or her party, will ever eliminate or even truthfully agree to eliminate corruption in Sri Lanka!

Hope these promises will not be limited to their manifestos because generally politicians are very good at promises but they are very poor in fullfilling them. This is a known secret to Sri Lankan voters. We still remember what late Dr.N.M.Perera promised to people when he was in the opposition and what he did when he became Finance Minister in the Sirimavo Bandaranayke government. Therefore,what is important for our voters today is not what they are going to get but how and when they are going to get it.

I wish people genuinely saw that. Most are just entrenched in partisan, personality-based politics. So much talk, little to no positive action. All visions are for personal ego and profit.

People hope that new manifestos would come out with specific project proposals, for each district.
