Postpone Presidential Elections

According to the latest information available to us that has not been challenged, I as a patriotic citizen of this country personally think that it would be in the best interests of not only MR but also the entire country that the Presidential elections should be postponed indefinitely to a more favourable time for the following reasons:

Two opposition candidates for the Presidential race - Ranil and Gen. Fonseka ?

With the resignation of Gen. Sarath Fonseka it appears that the strategy about a common cadidate for the Presidential race as well had changed. According to current discussions, senior UNP members have pressurised the newly formed UNF to field Ranil as the common Presidential candidate while promoting Gen. Fonseka to contest on the ticket of another party, obviously the lame-duck JVP.
