Sri Lanka: Presidential Election - "Your Move"

[b]Sri Lanka: Presidential Election - "Your Move" [/b]

By Bodipala Wijeyesinghe

Please do your civic duty.
Please “Vote.”
In some countries people die for a chance to vote.
You have it, delivered to your door step. Vote - Please.

Many candidates may have asked, for your vote. In my opinion the fight for the top job is between the current Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapakse (MR) And the previous Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe (RW)

Polls (Asian Tribune) as at 12 Nov 2005. “MR” 66.5 % “RW” 29.1 % others 4.4%

How you vote is up to you.

The following you ought to know.

If you do not mind Sri Lanka been divided Vote for “RW”

If you want to keep Sri Lanka as a unitary state Vote for “MR”

It is as simple as this.

The rest is “political gobbledygook”

May I advocate you to view rest of the promises with caution?

Let us re-look at what “RW” have done for our country. Let’s look at the period when he was the Cabinet Minster and later when he was the Prime Minister. The period before 200.
