The Sri Lanka Freedom Party has said that all Sri Lankans, including the civilians of the North and the East have again highly endorsed the Mahinda Chinthana at this poll.
Issuing a statement, the Sri Lanka Freedom Party said that the election result has clearly endorsed that the people have totally rejected the accusations made by alien forces as well as certain political parties against the Government to achieve narrow political gains. The SLFP as well as the Government had two objectives through this election. One was to enthrone democracy through elections in the North and the East after vanquishing terrorism. The other desire was to achieve stability within every political unit as a Government as well as a Party.
The SLFP stated that this result exceeded these expectations. It is a notable feature. The polls also clearly displayed that the people had handed in a historic defeat to the United National Party and the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna. The Sri Lanka Freedom Party has expressed its gratitude to the people for handing in power of a majority of the Local Councils to the Government.
