    Dear Mr. Attanayake, is this anything new under this Regime? Haven’t these happened during all the past elections? Waste of millions in this manner and abuse of Govt. property and other resources for election work are going on UNABATED despite your protest to the EC. Now, when you write to this man, only thing will be he will be getting the ‘AATHATHAYA”! So, what’s the use? The only thing you should do is to EDUCATE THE PEOPLE. AND DO SO EFFECTIVELY!!!

  2. Apart from what is mentioned in the above news column, when one goes around the island everywhere you could see posters and cut-outs of governing party candidates deisplayed every nook and corner against the elections law. What is the Elections Commissioner doing regarding these violations. He would say action will be aken but never will it be put into practice.

  3. Tissa……oh sorry Tom & Jerry, I am a UNPer……what do think the UNP did when you had been in power…….same S!… at different era your party who introduced all these malpractices and trained all politicians to do so……how about 700 mil spent on Mr. Bean RW office to fix new back up data system and computers in 2002/3………you all saints with halos around your head.
