Sign on the train to Nawalapitiya, by Dhanushka Jayakody
They can’t really assemble Parliament until Nawalapitiya and Trinco are repolled. What for the (extraordinary) violence there was. Perambara has a reporter down there now posting updates on the Twitter. Seeing as all the (limited) attention is on these few polling stations violence seems unlikely, but who knows. I suppose there are still scores to settle. I think Mano Ganeshan (leading Tamil politician) is running from there. I think he may’ve lost last time so it’ll be interesting to see how that turns out. The fate of recent/late UNP crossovers like SB and Keheliya Rambukwella will also be decided.
