    This poll only represents the region/area from which most attendees came to the exhibition. Not representative of Sri Lanka as a whole.

    When things are not according to our thinking we fault the system. Any poll has drawbacks but when it is over 90% in one area it could be accepted the countrywide opinion could not differ by much.
