The true percentage of votes of the Bud is 40 %; Government is 42 % ; Media announcements are wrong !.

(Lanka-e-News - 06.March.2018, 4.45PM)   It has now come to light that the national percentage at the last local polls published by media are erroneous ……

The true national percentage of Flower Bud is 40.66 % 
(According to Media Institutions – 44.65 %)
UNP national percentage is  29.40 %
(Media Institutions  – 32.63 %)

SLFP +UPFA percentage : 12.38 % 
(Media Institutions- 13.38 %) 

JVP percentage :  5.8% 
( Media Institutions-6.27 %)

How did these errors crop up ? 

Most media Institutions when reckoning  the national percentage have taken into consideration all votes of the primary parties ( SLPP, UNP, SLFP+UPFA , JVP, TNA ) , that is 11,069, 417 as  valid votes when counting them.

However ,  when reckoning remaining  parties and the independent group  , their total valid votes is 12,214, 901. Accordingly the  national  percentage of the various distinct parties ought to change.

January 8 th mandate and the future of the government …

What is paramount in this context is  , Mahinda Rajapakse who is speaking about forming a government has only  received 40 % . On the other hand , the UNP plus president’s SLFP together with  parties of  national coalition government  have received 42 % , while at the last presidential elections , the parties under the swan symbol received 51 % votes.

Going by this it is clear the people have still not moved away from their  mandate of 2015-01-08 . Hence what is imperative now is , the two main parties getting together and implementing the national programs most expeditiously , and following  a course of staying   clear from  allowing  issues to proliferate   among the parties of the coalition.

The main mistake was  committed by the Elections Commission..  They did not publish the district results or National results of the elections as soon as possible.
