      Will the diaspora racists do the same for Sajit? If they fail, they can elect Sajit unanimously as the chief minister of Northern Provincial council.
      Tinker,
      Just accept the results and act accordingly without barking at the wrong tree! You should know Sri Lanka is a democracy and you will need time to learn it.

      Thinker > Then thank the gods that Tamil Racists couldn’t help the country to fall into worse hell by bending to extremists like Badurdeen, Asard, ect to do as they please.. And continue letting the Royal gang to burden the people with more taxes while they find new ways to rob.

      Everyone thought that the minority votes will again decide the country’s future.. guess the Sinhala majority decided to teach a new lesson as the majority did in India….

      The general election will be much worse for the UNP… The Sinhala majority will give enough votes this time to form a government without getting much help from minorities…

    The voter turnout in today’s presidential poll states that there has been a massive voter turnout in the east and the north of the island.

    This is the first time that this has occurred and hopefully, this is a good positive sign for the betterment of the much-maligned nation.

    May the country Br blessed with a competent, honest simple President who can raise this isle to it’s rightful position on this planet.

    Cheers, R. j.

    Didn’t Dr Ranil order the BIA to shut the Departure Gates before the Election Results were announced lat time ?.
    Wonder why Dr Ranil is keeping mum this time ..

    Has Dr Ranil got the vibes that He and his current Yahapalana Cabinet will be intact on Monday the 18th ,after our inhabitants rushed in in record numbers to cast their Vote , creating a historical best of 81.25 % turn Out?…

    Or has Dr Ranil’s mate Upul Jaysooriya , already prepared his legal team to front up to the High Court on Monday?..

    CT – Watch your back, an uneducated serial killer and National Hangman will be ceremonially installed as the President of The United States of Sorry Lanka by Sorry Lanka’s grass-eating voters! Prime Minister Ranilpakse must be in celebration mood. People of Sorry Lanka, murder, rape and robbery is the name of the game, get ready to live in poverty!

    whatever Gamini and other Ranil worshippers ( apologists?) have been saying the truth is under ranil the country has moved away from the UNP.

    Under so called leadership of ranil the UNP has become only a tool in the hand of a few old royalists and NGOs.

    Sajith tried but it is a hopeless mission.

    Now the UNP should make Ranil their permanent leader and walk to Kanatta.

    Lets see whether the war crime denier Dayan’s wishes come true?
    In his typing on 17 January 2015 titled Beyond 50:50 he dismissed Hopper Sirisena’s elevation to the office of president was a hollow victory as Hopper failed to win the majority of the majority while “Mahinda Rajapaksa indubitably won the majority of the majority of the island’s citizens: 55% of 70%. He lost. The winner failed to win a majority of the majority. He won. To a great many, this structural asymmetry makes the mandate look and feel like a doughnut.”

    As far as Dayan is concerned the voting by the minorities do not count and should not be allowed to vote for in Presidential elections.

    Let see what he has to type if Gota didn’t receive 50%+1 vote in this election.

      In a way I am not that unhappy about the results.

      UNP had already lost the 2020 Election when it joined hands with SLFP in 2015.
      2015 promise was to investigate fraud and recover the lost national wealth. Was there any investigations done, anyone charged, anything recovered.
      Making W.Rajapaksa the justice minister was like tying a large rock around your neck and jumping into a well.

      Sri Lanka’s curse has been the card carrying Sinhala Buddhist in a way Sobitha Thera screwed the country and the UNP.
      Now its a bonus to say Sinhala Bauda Lanka is led by a sociopath.

    Election results are flowing in as expected. Majority Sinhala Buddhist regions that are racially and inclined to the military is going towards Goat. Maybe these voters are fed grass. Only surprise is the low vote for AKD.

    Yet its too early for Basil to call tenders for white vans.

    The sweetest Victory of all..The country will be in safe hands for at least 5 years.
    But it is a Herculean Task to Fix the e damage to the economy and the Security.

    Commiserations to all Dr Ranil backers who were forced to barrack for Keselwatta Kid who had Buckly’s after the damage done to the country and its great majority by Dr Ranil and his crooked Cabinet.

    Pohottuwa must now re group and organize themselves to win the War,which is to eliminate the Kotte Crooks for ever , with the help of those Millions who finally said enough is enough.

      Millions have also rejected him.
      Elimination is only under a dictatorship. Many of the Yahapalana crooks/ SLFP Ministers are with Pohottuwa now. Victory will not wash away the blood of the innocents in the hands of the conquerers.

    CT, after all the dirty tricks under the sun, bogus lawsuits and conspiracy theories, you couldn’t even make a dent in majority’s wish to send all Yahapalanaya crooks home. How about trying next time respecting democracy and the will of the people? Adios bros!

    The voting pattern now surely dictates for a two-state solution as the only option. Regional security and Reconciliation is thrown out of the window for a united Sri Lanka,
    It another wake up call to India, US, IC and for the Tamils.

      Yes you’d like that wouldn’t you? From the safety of Toronto you people care a hoot about the Tamils or anyone else.

      What about those who are Gota neutral?
      What should they do?

      ” the people have spoken in ‘one of the cleanest elections’ held.”

      Does it mean Hopper Sirisena and Ranil have the ability to conduct a clean elections?

    In 2005, It is alleged MR bribed the LTTE to prevent voters in the North from exercising their franchise (this was critical in that election, as had that not occurred, RW would have won the election). RW made that allegation in Parliament under parliamentary privileges. If that was true, that is tantamount to sedition. But RW did not challenge that is a court of law. He had a duty and responsibility to do just that but he failed to uphold the sovereignty of the People in 2005 (he was quite happy to be the Leader of the Opposition!)

    In 2019, there is much debate that NGR is in violation of the Constitution of the Republic of SL (due to his citizenship status). Similar to what was done during the 52 day saga when MS / MR violated the Constitution, this notion should be tested in a court of law, where all the facts should be presented to the Judges by both sides so a final determination could be made and this matter could be put to bed, once and for all.

    It is better to institute a case in court of law (if there is a deemed violation of any laws and / or deemed punishable offense) rather than making statements (as RW did) in Parliament under parliamentary privileges.

    A well-planned and executed campaign based on policies, strategies and action plans coupled with a determined leader won the day. This is a sign of political maturity.
    People did not fall into UNP s mud slinging and strap lines.

    looks like though sirisena was neutral,the SLFP voters were not.They have voted for gota.That is why sajith has lost.The SLFP vtes were crucial.The rift between ranil and sirisena was a disaster for sajit.

    Gota neutrals, please do not drop litter. Watch the trains run on time. Useful idiots like the thug Gnanasara are finished. Muslms, Tamils have no fear, Gota does not want chaos. Islamists, Separatists fear for your lives, Gota wants stability and unity.

    from 7/11 cash till operator to President of Sri Lanka.
    Sajith couldn’t win over the rural Sri Lankans…..and they are sleep walking in to a totalitarian Sri Lanka…by the time they realise it will be too late.
    For Tamils in Sri Lanka -they will see rapid Sinhalasisation of the NE …..Nallur Temple will become a Buddhist Temple before within the next five years

    For expatriate Tamils November is the month of procrastination old school dinner dance and SCOT lunch and a donation to build yet another school library in the NE

    God Bless Sri Lank

    Ranil saved Old Royals- rather “The Current Royals” for this day. He will remain in PM seat for some more time. He secured his position with 19A, though in Feb 2018 & Oct 2018 he was willing to hand it over to Old King. Chandrika’s days were over, as many said. SWRD many turn the side and continue his sleep in the cabin. Neither Don Stephen nor SWRD had the food in their bucket the monster Child they were creating & rearing. So SLFP and UNP could not be able to spew enough venom to survive as the parents of the growing Sinhala Buddhist Intellectualism. So Slap Party has won the custody battle.

    Somebody have to put hat collection for a ticket to Mangala. He rebelled in UNP against Ranil.
    I wonder where the democracy & Media Freedom, as claimed by many Yahapalanaya supporters, were created by Yahapalanaya has gone on the election? If the majority has voted like this and the Media has voluntarily had campaigned for this, who got the feeling of Yahapalanaya had created any democracy and Media freedom.

    The child Secret Solution has become a stillborn child. Never any talk of that will be in future. Let’s see what happens the American engineered UNHRC resolution 30/1.

    Sri Lanka is now a broken country. The map of the election results showed that green marked the North and the East while red marked the rest with pockets in the middle showing areas of the Tamil estate workers areas. Gota has a choice. He must ensure that the Tamil/ Muslim rights are assured or alienate them further. It appears that there was a Tamil/Muslim vote against him. Sagacity dictates that he does not act to alienate them further. No amount of military measures can keep people down. This wisdom of history must be realised and triumphalism must not be allowed to rule the country once more. Let us hope that Gota acts as he promised and be a president for the whole country. History will praise him if he does so.

    We have to understanding that is in Indian Tamil Nadu, nothing else that location in-out of that South of Indian Republic.
    Look at Sajith P… lost of election maps has shows that TNA and LTTE wanted for their “Homeland” on North Part of Island. Undoubtedly baton has given to Sajith, if he supposed to win by hook or crook….
    Politically unwise of Sajith that 2019 Presidential Elections was a point of barging by key leaders TNA that 13 demand forwarded by major Tamil political class by Tamils chauvinist …an Island; that including by Maharaja Business magnets of that TV channel # @@@ by $$$$.
    The Homeland for Tamil speaking in World that claim and blame against Sinhalese -Buddhist civilization is/was political cheeky talks of that leadership TNA and LTTE terrorist outfits. Tamil politician their leaders and Tamil handful classes members in last 71 years are working on long-term basis aim at destabilization and created chaos in island-wide. By weaken and disorder of nation STATE top priority of Tamil leaders political agenda.
    The christen of Tamil of TNA leaders and some of handful UNP having on line chat by politically of chasm of that which was a 21/4 Muslim terror attack was one of that . Hence TNA tactics of political are aim at destabilization among Sinhalese and Tamil by demarcated line between racism and chauvinism line of
    by ‘discrimination’ slogan .
    Tamils are looking for “Grand Empire in Indian Ocean” by annexing later part of Island for that dream of Tamil Nadu great empire for Tamil nation…Global map.
    By and large divide Island – country which that aim at long-term political strategy of occupy of whole Sri Lanka for by installed rough “Tamils” Capitalism state in world-wide
