The ruling UPFA is leading the 2010 General Elections with a total of 117 seats in parliament so far while the UNP has 46 seats, the TNA 12 and the DNA of General Sarath Fonseka securing five seats.  Meanwhile the results of the Kandy and Trincomalee Districts are yet to be released owing to some malpractices.

    Well planned distribution. UPFA has 2/3 what they aimed for. Congradulation and have a good strong backbond to develop country. They Sri Lanka will be proud in world and have joyful life. But need to control drugs, corruption, fighting and stealing and all bad stuff by establishing real law to same for everyone.

    hmmm they can come very close to 2/3 rd...considering the national list also.........

    There may be buying and selling of MP seat which occurs last time/ so defnitely MR gets 4/5

    Friday, 09 April 2010 01:55 PM

    Mr. Ranil your good at building the country not building the party We require you as a valued member but not as a leader of UNP

    This government won election not because they are clever, but weak UNP leader

    Fool's paradise = Sri Lanka!

    Yes, at the moment, it appears that they will be short by around 10 heads, to obtain the 2/3rds majority. But, do not forget as to how MR built-up his majority, last time. All possibilities are there that he will repeat his tactics and secure 10 heads of the UNF, to crossover. Wait and see!

    Ruin the country for the next 6 years ...

    Well, with both hetti-'village' and 'vermin' in parliament, we can figure-out who the REAL 'gon harakas' are.

    Friday, 09 April 2010 11:31 PM

    Two Thirds? Not until you increase the present number ... with bribes?

    But look. we have to await Kandy district and Trinco seats. Plus the national list seat. im sure it will come to close to the 2/3 majority.
