    Any guesses about the distribution of the undeclared 45 seats? Isn`t it possible that UPFA will get a 2/3rd majority? All they need is 28. If not, I`m sure some UNP`ers will cross over rather than wait 6 years in the political wilderness. Otherwise, there`s always jilmart!

    [The Leader of Democratic National Alliance (DNA) and candidate of that alliance for Colombo District has obtained the highest percentage of preferential votes at the concluded general election 2010. The number of votes the DNA received from Colombo District was 110,683 and Gen. Fonseka received 98,456 votes out of it. Accordingly, Gen. Fonseka s percentage of preferential votes is 88.95%.

    However, the government claims that President s son Namal Rajapakse has received the highest percentage of preferential votes in the island. The total number of votes the UPFA polled in Hambantota District is 174,808 and Namal Rajapakse has received 147,566 votes out of this total. Accordingly, Namal s percentage of preferential votes is 84.41%.

    Hence, Gen. Sarath Fonseka, the Leader of the DNA has obtained the highest percentage of preferential votes in the island and not Namal Rajapakse as claimed by the government.]

    Now that the war is over and MR is in full control having won both elections,he must not think of a Honeymoon period.That was over long time ago with his win at the presidential elections.MR has to get to work right away to bring all the peoples of Sri Lanka together.He has to do a lot for the people of the north and east.If he fails,specially with the Tamil population,then MR can be assured of wider problems specially from friendly nations who kept bailing out Sri Lanka from the UN for war crimes,human rights,democracy etc.,It is only MR,with his popularity and people`s TRUST he enjoys presently, who can give Sri Lanka its rightful place in the international society with democratic rights for all SRI LANKANS.Sri Lanka need not go back to the times of Sirimavo.

    Best case Senario - 143 seats. What is 7 more for MR. He`ll get it, if he wants.

    Anywhere in the World that should never happen for the sake of the country but,unfortunately politics in Sri Lanka is at the bottom rug.Any party in the opposition means only OPPOSE even if a bill is beneficial for the country and its people.If the government does get the 2/3rd majority,it would be totally the fault of the UNP and its morbid defunct policies.What happens ahead is anybody`s guess with a government with absolute power.
