Re-statement of people’s faith, says Rajapaksa

Apr 9, 2010 8:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
Within hours of the contours of the new Parliament becoming known, Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa described the outcome of the general election as a re-statement of people’s faith in him and his policies. The statement said: “This is the triumph of democracy. It is a clear re-statement of the confidence of the people placed in me, the Mahinda Chintana [his presidential election manifesto] and the UPFA at the Presidential election.” However, the main opposition United National Party (UNP) has accused the government of misuse of government machinery and other irregularities.   www.hindu.com/2010/04/10/stories/2010041069632300.htm
