“This is the first election related incident in which a fire arm was used.

      Don,

      This bugger MR first used a goon squad called ‘Wambottas’ to kill all his opponents. After he became President he got the Forces with Gota’s help to liquidate all the Wambottas. Mervyn Silva knows the inside story. It is a matter of time before these buggers are liquidated.

    Knowing the situation VERY well, why should we spend tax payers funds for these unfair elections ?

    a)They abuse all state media for their favor
    b)They use illegal manners and banners to propaganda
    c)They even attack dissdents broad daylight – not respecting any rights of values to show their forms of power

    Reminds me of the Beliatte by election of 1989 when the Medamulane murderer with some of his party supporters were involved in the killing of a person who belonged to another party. They were all acquitted due to conflicting statements made by witnesses. Hm- history is being repeated here. SAD
