  1. That little more than half of these public servants including police and military should have voted in favor of the Freedom Alliance is hardly surprising. They were the former regime’s staunchists supporters. They may however not represent the majority of the people. Let’s not jump at conclusions yet and wait for what we’ll know on Tuesday afternoon.

  2. Even Sirisena did not vote for UFPA, although he is the leader of UFPA. Why this man should be a president of Sri Lanka? Most dishonest and mean (Neechaya) leader in history, Please resign from your position as president as we do not want a traitor like you to destroy Sri Lanka.
