I don’t think it’s normal to surround the opposition candidate with troops as a result is being called? Nor is it normal to surround the media outlets with guns. And the Daily Mirror website just went down, hopefully just for a second. I don’t think the Fonseka camped is very armed, certainly not compared to the Army. I also don’t think they’re staging a coup from the Cinnamon Lakeside. This is all just very odd, and a bit inappropriate. Illegal cutouts and misuse of state media is one thing, but physically surrounding the opposition with military is a bit out of line. The thing about Army deserters is also a bit of a lame excuse. Why are they so insecure?
This election wasn’t fair, but I thought the count was legitimate. I don’t get why the opposition and media are surrounded by troops.
