    [Present Sri Lanka Election system must go - PM]


    All the useless representatives in the present parliament also must be retired.

    This is a `nonsense` system of elections!

    What Sri Lanka needs is a `simple majority` system.

    In this country where I am living now has a normal system to elect peoples` representatives, like in many countries of the world.

    When we had Presidential elections here, we had many candidates. On the first day of voting almost all candidates get votes in different proportions.

    If the leading candidate gets more than 50% of the votes cast, he is elected the President.

    If on the other hand, the leading candidate does not get 50% of votes, then there is a second round of voting between the 2 leading candidates.

    The race is between these two candidates and the one who gets highest number of votes is elected.

    Is that so complicated for a country like Sri Lanka?

    This is what our Prime Minister is thinking of: to have a simpler system of voting for the country.
