Election: Only way out of the national crisis? That all the representatives on the banks of the Diyawanna Oya can be painted with the same brush has been disputed. The 18th Amendment to the constitution was approved on September 8, 2010 with 161 MPa voting for and 17 against it. In spite of days of acute suffering Sri Lankans have gone through since then, Gotabaya doesn’t seem to be going. Since the Gota regime is quite unlikely to hold an election soon, could the activists declare ‘a revolution’ and hold a parliamentary election for the people to decide under the normal laws of the land?
