There are thousands who voted for SP turning towards GR to make Sri Lanka a better place to live in without fear. Strict control of functions over state bodies, maintaining a non aligned status in the international arena and non interference in matters relating to law enforcement and judiciary are much applauded by the public.
President's policy to lead a simple lifestyle and not to splurge public funds are much appreciated by all citizens. A lot of things which he is doing and following were not used as a petty ploy to gain votes at the Presidential campaign meetings. He never blew his trumpet to counter the 'Piano' music played by his opponent.
