    And what about the millions of labourers and house maids lockes up in houses in the middle east? And the expats in the west? They too must add up to a sizeable number who will have no way of voting!

    Apey Marajathuma meda paara dinanney aduma gaaney 2.6million vote majority ekakin!!

    [and what about the millions of labourers and house maids....]

    No problems!! The living the dead, those overseas will not have to bother about how to cast their votes personally. `Technology` is such that all their votes would be cast in favor of HRH Field Marshall Commander in Chief Dr.Sri Wickrama Mahinda Rajapaksa under the latest `automatic` voting system in operation in SL!!

    Kiwikanga,

    Man who invent the voting system for this group in 1989 for Mr.RP has joined Maharajathuma as per SL media today.

    Therefore NO issue on this group.

    We stated NIC in 1972. The Department of Registration of People cannot complete the issuing system up to date for 20 Million Sri Lankans for last 36 years.

    Main page we are talking about SL will be like S`pore in near future.

    May be in `Labna Kalpaye`

    We mus have a mechanism other than personal ID for voting. Some countries like Canada allow people to vote if somebody can recommend he/she is elegible to vote if she/he has no identity to prove his name.

    Sri Lanka is decades ahead of countries such as Canada which are backward when it comes to elections and systems of voting. Sri Lanka has much more advanced and better systems in place where even the dead are not deprived of their voting rights. Such is the respect given to the dead in Sri Lanka.
