While expecting a strong representation in parliament, National Peoples’ Power (NPP) said today it would be the main force to stand with the people against harmful and destructive moves which are set to unfold after the August 5 general election.
NPP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayaka told media after casting his vote in Colombo, that a certain faction was attempting to create a single-family democracy in the country and that people should defeat such moves with their franchise.
“Things that are detrimental and harmful to people are set to take place after the general election. We expect a strong representation in parliament to defeat such moves,” he said.
He said even though the election was considerably free and fair, the use of state property, state media and state power were reported as usual in this election as well.
Mr. Dissanayake said political atmosphere in the country would reach the peak after the election as the government would face the current economic crisis by burdening the people and depriving of their rights.
“This government will face the economic debacle by burdening the people and depriving of their rights. They will suppress people’s struggles and violation of their rights. NPP will become the main force to stand against political developments after August 5,” he said. (Ajith Siriwardana)

This one may be under delusion. If he gets at least 3 seats in the parliament, it will be a miracle and a blessing for the nation.

you may be right. we will wait and see what the results. Likewise, many Tamils hope that Mr.Sampanthan and Mr.Sumanthiran will be defeated in the next election for their dishonesty and selfishness.
