News From 2025 Presidential Election

By Ramanee Goonewardene

Polling started at midnight. 

The first vote was cast by the President at the polling station next to his ancestral home in the newly consecrated capital city of our great motherland.

The President arrived at the polling station at the auspicious time of 11.11 pm. On his arrival, he was greeted by the members of the National Election Commission, the National Astrological Commission, the National Collective of Professionals in Divine Arts, the commanders of the tri-forces and the inspector-general of the police. Religious leaders of all faiths also graced the occasion. Saffron robes and red hats mixed with god-men in skull necklaces and officials in ties. 

A group of students representing all communities sang the new national anthem, Hail Our Hero who labours for the Motherland.

A simple ceremony to invoke blessings on the President and our motherland followed. The ceremony was symbolic of the President’s 2019 promise to marry tradition with technology. Piety and excitement filled the air as religious leaders chanted and prayed and practitioners of Divine Arts invoked charms against the enemies of our motherland. Holographic technology was used to beam it to every corner of the island, every polling station and home. 

The ceremony ended at 11.54 pm. 

The Chairman of the National Astrologers Commission presented a lotus bud handcrafted in gold to the President at 11.56 pm.

The chairman of the National Election Commission presented the ballot paper to the President at 11.58 pm.

The President cast his vote at midnight.

**

The National Astrological Commission had proclaimed 50 to be the optimum number of candidates for the 2025 President Election. 53 candidates indicated their intention of entering the fray by paying deposits. 

Two candidates were arrested on charges of aiding terrorism as they emerged from the Election Commission Office after paying their deposits. One died in a road accident the same night. 

Fifty candidates handed over nominations.

Forty nine candidates issued a public appeal begging the President to allow them to use their candidacy to strengthen his hands.

The President gave his contest with his usual graciousness.

The President introduced several novel methods of campaigning. In the 2019 election, he had invited voters to have tea with him. During this campaign, he took the concept further. The new practices included At Home with the President, Sing-along with the President, and An evening elephants, sharks and a Swiss dog. Lucky participants were picked via lotteries. 

No incidents of violence or violations were reported during the campaign. 

**

All observers agreed that the 2025 Presidential election was the most peaceful in the history of our resplendent isle, which is also the wonder of the world. A carnival atmosphere prevailed throughout the polling hours which ended at 10.23 am the following day. The times were set by the National Election Commission as per the decrees of the National Astrological Commission. 

People waited in patient lines outside polling stations across the country until voting commenced. Members of the Gods-Men Brigades, and undergraduate students of the National University of Divine Arts attended to the physical and spiritual needs of the voters, providing them with comfort foods and warm beverages, amulets, talismans, and fortune-telling, all free.  

In accordance with the President’s commitment to transparency, voting was done in the open. “Voting is the greatest democratic right and patriotic duty of a citizen,” the President has declared after he added the Democracy dies in darkness clause to the Constitution which mandated open and compulsory voting. “It is not an act of shame to be done in secret, hidden from all eyes but those of the voter. It should be performed with pride and openness.” 

In 2024, the parliament unanimously approved a law that added voting to the Patriotic Credit System introduced by the President in 2022. The law decreed that those who failed to cast their votes be declared as non-citizens and denied the right to higher education, government employment, public transportation, home ownership, bank loans, as well as the use of social media. 

The expanded National Security Council (which now includes the Astrologer National and Exorcist National) had ensured that all polling stations were provided with face-identification technology. Members of the Gods-Men Brigade paid courtesy calls on all homes and encouraged voters to perform their patriotic and democratic duty on the day of the election.

The Election proved the popularity of the new voting method. Voter after voter held up marked polling cards to the cameras with pride. Many voters had to be politely discouraged from reciting poems and making speeches in praise of the President.

Soon after the polling closed at the auspicious hour, the Election Commission announced that every single registered voter had voted.

The first result was announced two hours after the polls closed. The final result came six hours later. 16,951,045 had cast their votes. Of that 17,189,250 had voted for the president. There were no spoilt votes. 

Members of the National Election Commission presented the results to the President as he was about to name the elliptical highway circling our island nation after his elder brother, the late Universal Leader. Participating in this solemn ceremony were religious leaders, the members of the Astrological Commission, members of the Collective of Divine Arts Professionals, members of the upper judiciary, tri-forces commanders and the IGP, heads of all media institutions, heads of all professional associations and other dignitaries.

The President celebrated his victory by laying wreaths at the gold-and-marble tombs of his three brothers and his three nephews. He also granted a full amnesty to all those imprisoned on charges of terrorism in the aftermath of the evil uprising jointly conducted by red terrorists, blue terrorists, green terrorists, religious terrorists, racist terrorists, military terrorists, bureaucratic terrorists, judicial terrorists, media terrorists, student terrorists, slum-dwelling terrorists and others. 

The released prisoners were brought to meet the president at their own request in 15,201 buses. After a meal consisting of traditional sweetmeats and tea, he advised them to forget the past, and ask the future. 

They hailed this sage advice in one voice, before proceeding to take the Oath of Loyalty to the President of our Democratic Socialist Republic.

      “The President celebrated his victory by laying wreaths at the gold-and-marble tombs of his three brothers and his three nephews. “

      Thanks for the essay. Can’t we place wreaths for the president as well now? After all they all are going to die of old age, and will go nowhere, no Heaven, Nirvana, Nibbana or even the Hell.

        Emil, I survived the UNP’s 17 year JR dictatorship and Premadasa’s murder of tens of thousands in the Eighties. I’m sure you did too. Murder, thuggery and white vans are not causes for hilarity, but neither is CT’s disgraceful bias for a supposedly impartial website.

    No need to dream Miss Ramaanee…Dr Ranil will be the PM on the17th, with Keselwatta Kid as his Boss President only by name…

    After listening to Dr Ranil in Manipai, addressing the throng of jubilant TNA supporters, I thought Nandsena has run his race.

    Dr Ranil not only promised to bring his Federal Constitution to give Homelands soon after the Election ,
    Dr Ranil also promised that there will be a new Senate to go with it..

    And not even passing reference to the UNP Candidate’s Big Ass promises like free Menstrual Pads , free Meals to School Kids , and more Samurdhi Enrollments..

    The poise and the confidence in Dr Ranil broke my heart, thinking this is the end of the 2500 year old Lankawe as we know it..

    Never seen such confidence in an existing PM going to an Election..
    May be Ramaanee is not up to speed with Dr Ranil’s UNP Manifesto, and his private Polling to waste time dreaming of a President in Lankawe in 2025.

    Wonder whether this Manipai is an Elite. Anglican and Vellala Electorate?..

      “Dr Ranil not only promised to bring his Federal Constitution to give Homelands soon after the Election ,
      Dr Ranil also promised that there will be a new Senate to go with it..”

      Please let us have some straight answers:

      What is a federal constitution?
      Why (we are not informed of its form or shape) do the Sinhala/Buddhists fascists opposed to such constitution?
      Forget the rest tell us exactly why do you oppose it?

      Are you looking at the world from HLD M’s bum?

      Could we have some direct truthful answers.

      Here is something from Buddha’s teaching:
      Suffering exists;
      It has a cause;
      It has an end;
      It has a cause to bring about its end.

      You should find out the meaning of the Four Noble Truths from a Good Buddhists not from fake saffron clad thugs.

        Dear Native,-
        I don’t know what is in Dr Ranil’s Federal Constitution now.
        But the previous one made by his ex Commie mate had fully Independent Homelands with Full Police Powers .
        And total control of Lands in the North to the TNA and its Boss Sampathar.

        That gun PC Ali Sabry has made a startling revelation.
        The “new” Constitution which Keselwatta Kid is waving to the UNP Dalits in the South apparently is the same as Dr Ranil’s .

        And the the Sivajilinhgam and Sampathar’s new 13 Demands were formulated according to that draft which Dr Ranil has given Keselwatta Kid.
        And Ali Sabry says he has the copies of those documents..

        For your information Native, I am cool with Federal as long as it does not mean 1500 Tamils or Muslims to one Sq Kilometer and our great majority who are the Sinhala Buddhists to be crammed in to 5000 per one Sq Kilometer..
        Simple as that..

        BTW ,I don’t think your UNP or TNA mates would want to take Ali to the SC, to ask let alone get compensation?…

          “I don’t know what is in Dr Ranil’s Federal Constitution now.”

          Why don’t you shut up and sit tight until the draft is published. Whatever the form and content of the constitution the final draft has to be approved by the Hindians. Remember it won’t be the little islander’s little parliament which is going to decide on the final constitution.

          “For your information Native, I am cool with Federal as long as it does not mean 1500 Tamils or Muslims to one Sq Kilometer and our great majority who are the Sinhala Buddhists to be crammed in to 5000 per one Sq Kilometer..”

          There is a solution to it why don’t you stop the Sinhala/Buddhist breeding, by castration, compulsory chastity belts for Sinhala/Buddhist women folks, Channa Jayasumana’s discovery of sterilization, preventing saffron clad casanovas living near houses, ……………..

    The dystopic Orwellian dream continues. For the men who caused the disappearance of over 2 lakhs of innocent Tamil civilian men, women and children – with brutal impunity – a repeat of the performance a few more times is all but natural. After all tricky Dicky cold bloodedly said, smiling, making the Tamil people suffer will bring immense joy to the Sinhalese. Green or Blue, the Sinhala Buddhist leaders care tuppence for Tamil lives or their future. Promises, as Lenin said, are like biscuits – they are made to be broken. Sinhala leaders – now with the army as partners – will not forget that.

    The case of the alleged 6 million Jews in the aftermath of WW2 remains un-accounted for in the main – irrespective of Nuremberg. Tamils in large numbers have died in previous wars in history. They will, in the future, as well. So why bother too much?

    But the best laid plans can flounder – as they have many times in history. VP and his barefoot soldiers overran the better equipped, larger manned Elephant House Camp.
    Taking the Tamils lightly and callously can be costly. The 75:25 equation is a temporary phenomena, Remember Ho ChiMin proved the experts wrong in the fields of Vietnam.

    “ The first result was announced two hours after the polls closed. The final result came six hours later. 16,951,045 had cast their votes. Of that 17,189,250 had voted for the president. There were no spoilt votes.
    Very good accounting, it is. But how did that happened? Did Sinhala_Man campaign with Arrack and Biryani requesting the voters to vote their 2nd and 3Rd preferences also to president? That is really a very Smart Idea! (Anyway, this time too, when they count the 2nd and 3rd preference, it is going be much above 50% for the first two candidates. EU watchers will certify that it was much better election than it took place last time in Venezuela or Somalia.)
    “The President celebrated his victory by laying wreaths at the gold-and-marble tombs of his three brothers and his three nephews. “ I don’t’ like this line because it is too sad. I like the line of they all sleeping peacefully on UN Electric Recliner Chair.

    But at the end of the story, did the Indian came in search of President by Jaffna International Airport, Americans came by Trico and Chinese came by Hangbangtota? Did the president go to hide in the endless bunker but the CIA dogs chased, bit him? Then Ranil also admitted his girlfriend at Hotel Hospital of the Rapist Army; is that right? Then did Ranil have cleaned his man eating shark aquarium before anybody sees that and he placed the bones in the Silver Peacock Palace swimming pool?

    Good story!

    It is fair enough some writers hate MR and GR. But why they do not mention JRJ and R Premadasa. Have Tamils forgotten what happened in 1983 (thousands of tamils killed). Have Sinhalese forgotten what happened in 1989/1990( thousands of Sinhalese youth killed).
    Do not be biased.

    This writer sarcastically write a fantasy story on GR.
    But these literary English writers do not write anything about other “Gobbaya” and his gon talks. Who says;

    I will built 1125 Pagodas (Chythayas) if I become the President and gives everything free to all Sri Lankans. Further, he says that I am a 51 year old super man. His words and speeches are useless garbage. He never tells how I do that and How do I find the required funds.

    These so called English writers still want that GR be defeated and the other Goobbya become a President. What ridiculous jokers are these writers. They think that they know everything and living in ivory towers.

    I hold the TNA for the situation we find ourselves in. When I say TNA I point my finger at the snake Sumanthiran. I hold him responsible for this guy contesting in the presidential election. Snake Sumnthiran gave assurance to the United Nations that Sri Lanka had the legal mechanism to handle the crimes committed during the latter stages of the war. As for this write up; though it is fiction now, it may well turn reality in the not too distant future. I can’t understand the Tamil Idiots Douglas and Karuna’s mentality. I leave my comments about them for another day.

    Congratulations Ramanee, for putting us all on notice.

        Ah yes Pillayan, a strategically shaved neanderthal in trousers, that’s what politics has come to.

    Ramnee- if you are in abraod, that’s fine or if you are in mother Lanka, may God bless your soul. I wish you either should pack your stuff and go or should seek pardon from the Führer and never write again anything against him. I reckon his brown shirts and SS men are already hot persuit in white vans around the country find you live or dead.

    No word on the death of his brothers and nephews. It was not committed by any terrorist , It was executed by Gotler him self like how North Korean maniac fed his uncle to the dogs. If elected , it is Lankans call and they deserve it. Given the history Lankans are immoral too and I will not be surprised.Lanka will turn out to be a true “shit hole”. Imagine having the technology and living in a world of ancestors and practicing astrology, Talisman,black magic.

      True, I am not surprised.
      If you ask me, it was Gota’s actions that lead to Mara loosing the 2015 election.
      Gota was the Butcher of innocent Tamil civilians in 2009, brain behind BBS and he is also the blamed for White Van’s, Lasantha’s murder, Eknaliagoda’s disappearance, Tajudeen murder, Kieth Noyiar beating, Fredrica Jains Threats, Avant Guard scandal, Mig scandal, selling of defense headquarters lands, and many other devastating events that made Mara unpopular and paid the price in 2015.
      I would say Gota sabotaged his brother one way or another, so cleverly, then pulled off the Easter sunday attacks to gain entry into presidential candidacy.
      He had to play this game because most of the Sinhalese that like Rajapaksa’s do so because of Mara, not because of Gota.
      So Gota has to subtly push Mara out of power without Mara suspecting that he has an ambition. Then he has to use Mara to convince the people to Vote Gota, Mara is doing this to keep his hold over the country through his innocent naive younger brother, right… wrong!
      If Gota gets into power the first persons he will have to brush aside will be Mara, his 3 idiots and their humpty dumpty mother. Obviously it will be through natural causes like a plane crash or something.
      So, yes, the writer could be very correct on this prediction.

    Excellent satire. The irony is on those who think Gotler will be there to rescue them

    Ramanee! Why think negative? We hope May God Almighty choose a sober and kind President this time and we SriLankans will enjoy a peace and serene life in future.

    I listened to one of Gotler’s speeches. He was very specific on national security going into great length on what he wants to do and whom he wants to appoint (All his fellow army buddies with fascist attitudes) He also wants to up lift the estate sector. Sounded very nostalagic for a bygone era. He invented an artificial crisis by stoking violence beginning in Kandy then followed by the Easter Sunday attack and then encouraging revenge violence in the aftermath of the Easter Sunday Bombings. Key figures like Namal Kumara, Ravana Balaya and others on the Sinhalese side and the National Thowheeth Jama’ath on the Islamic side. Now he wants to protect the country from his own invention!! Us poor sods are supposed to believe that there is indeed a crisis of national security and that Gotler is the man to vote for to fix it. If this is not Orwellian than I do not know what is. This article is a well written description of Gotler’s Orwellian dystopia. God help us if it comes to pass. For those that have commented about the author being mad they need to have their own heads examined.

    Lovely writing Ramanee..
    But we pray God forbid this coming to pass.
    Re ‘ advised to forget the past and ask the future..’
    Sounds like something from Orwell’s ‘ 1984’.
    ‘ The past was erased,the erasure was
    forgotten, the lie became the truth ..
    ‘ Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing’.
    Once more we pray.
    God forbid.

    This article is like a rolling toilet paper for which nobody gives a toss.
    If the writer has forgotten, 2019 Presidential Election is followed by a Parliamentary Election.
    That means people have ample time until March 2020 to decide whether the actions taken by the new President will be in accordance with country’s constitution and also in parallel to the thinking of Sinhalese majority. If the general thinking is negative, then people will elect a Parliament which can control the President whoever who is that person.
    Don’t underemine people’s power.
    Upto today, neither Gotabhaya nor Sajith has rejected American MCC, SOFA, VFA, ACSA agreements.
    If they think that they can sign these agreements once elected, they are very much mistaken. The same Sinhalese people who elected them will rise against them. Sinhalese voters are no longer the same people. They have grown up since 2015 and now they are fully aware of their power. For them, country comes first, not individuals.
    At present, American MCC, SOFA, VFA, ACSA (what was signed is against the constitution) are the biggest threat to Sri Lanka’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, which is even a bigger threat than terrorism.
    All other election promises are secondary to this one pledge to reject MCC and other American agreements.
    Therefore, I urge the supporters of both candidates to force them to reject American agreements in clear wordings, before the election.
    If they don’t, have guts to refuse both.

    99.999% voted for Hitler Gotabaya
    Only 1 person voted for the other candidate, who died in a car accident.
    The voter was found, and is undergoing treatment in Angoda.
    ( the above happened in ghafaffi Libya)
    Names have been changed to get a Sri Lanken perspective.

    Despite the innuendo , the fact remains that the ‘teams’ around the two main candidates have very similar track records. As a floating voter , I will cast my vote in favor of who I think can better lead his team – preferably with an iron fist .

    I do not think Sajith sent white vans to kill people,
    Gota is a traitor who has admitted that the Sri Lanken government, killed people in the US courts. ICC will have evidence because Gota has admitted.
    May be a plea deal for further US forces to control Sri Lanka.
