    It would be better to have polling centres in Bars than in temples. Cheers!

    naturally, would expect nothing less from this disgraceful community of hopeless monks. SHAMELESS

    there are less than 20% of the monks in sri lanka are with the rajapakse rogues.60-70% do not get involved in politics and follow the true path of the Lord Buddha.but those bad apples give a stinky name not only to other monks but also to buddhism as a whole

    This is called firing all your guns.

    Election Commissioner - Now that this is happening - please in future DO NOT HAVE POLLING STATIONS IN PLACES OF WORSHIP.
