I’m not going to take sides here. Mahinda deserves his defeat as he disregarded the majority and served a proven ungrateful minority. But this coupled with other facts cast serious doubts on the validity of Sirisena’s election as president.

The astronomical increase in the number of persons polled in the districts of Jaffna, Vanni, Batticaloa, Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee and Digamadulla against 2010 indicates a large number of voters from these districts voted twice. Thanks to the efficient road network today it is possible for a person to vote in both Colombo and Jaffna districts. And in Vanni, Batticaloa, Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee and Digamadulla districts too with ease. Each of these districts show an increase of 20% in polling compared to 2010 which is only 14% for other districts. It was unthinkable in the past!

As a side note, it is really unfortunate Mahinda’s excellent road network defeated him, literally.

As Sirisena won by only 155,436 additional votes (not the lead by the excess over 50%), it is possible to successfully challenge his election based on voter fraud in the districts of Jaffna, Vanni, Batticaloa, Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee and Digamadulla.

Those who support Mahinda and wish to see a ‘safe Sri Lanka’ (as they claim) must take up this challenge instead of verbally defending the former president. In my view, there is substantial merit in such a legal challenge. The current setting of the Supreme Court is also beneficial. If successful, the outcome will not be Mahinda getting elected as president. Instead the outcome will be a situation as if there was no election​”.

A friend of mine did a small analysis and this is what he came up with. The numbers do not make any sense at all. How can the number of voters increase by 91% in Jaffna and by 71% in Vanni.​ These numbers are from Ada Derana.  If Dilrook’s hypothesis is true then the Election Commissioner must open investigation to possible voter fraud.  ​Somebody should do a full analysis of the increase in number of voters for all districts and compare and publish the results.

    Does President Mahinda Rajapaksa know these facts? Is anyone in his team taking note of the discrepancy and filing a case with the election commissioner? These facts should receive the highest priority for the election commissioner.

  2. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    A COPY OF THE ELECTORAL LISTS SHOULD BE FIRST OBTAINED FOR INITIAL VERIFICATION, AND CHECKED TO SEE HOW MANY VOTERS ARE REGISTERED. A RANDOM PHYSICAL CHECK ON THE GIVEN NAMES AND ADDRESSES WILL CAST MORE LIGHT.

  3. Vis8 Says:

    An investigation into this possibility has to be demanded.

  4. Marco Says:

    Wonderful analysis!!!
    Please also include Hambantota which had the highest voter turnout at over 80%, must be due to the Southern Expressway!
