Sri Lankans elect their next president today.

Judging by what I’ve seen on the net, I’m not alone in despising the election campaigns and politics itself, but it is a necessary evil.

For me, it boils down to the one candidate who stands to get the vote in spite of those around him, and the other who stands to lose the vote because of those around him.

And so, I too spent about 30 minutes standing in a long queue and cast my vote this morning. If the queues aare any indication, this time the turnout is good (as echoed by Samisa too).

Let’s hope we have all made the right choice for our future.
