Magampura takes its place in history

On a day like today, election results confirmed my victory. Today is the last day of my first term. I now say goodbye to this term and will begin my new term of office tomorrow. I recall the pledge I gave my nation five years ago, when after casting my vote at the polling station at Medamulana, I promised the nation that I would bring an honoured peace to this country and also to build a new Sri Lanka. I am glad to state that I was able to fulfil both these promises within five years, even before the end of my term.
Today, we have left our mark, not only on the Sri Lankan map but also the world map. Today the Port of Magampura saw the berthing of its first ship. In the maritime maps of the world this will be marked as an important port.
