More Election Tools

Seems the Mahinda Rajapakse camp has found yet another way to campaign for their candidate... phone calls. You just might receive a call on your landline with someone asking whether you'd like to hear a message from the president. If you say yes, you'll get a nice recorded message. What did it say? Well my Sinhala is not that good, but I got the gist that it had to do with elections and the things he had done for the country.

I don't know, but this ridiculously high amount of exposure seems like a bad idea, like maybe it'll actually turn some people away.


  1. oohh...why dont i get a call? wud love to hear what he has to say :P

  2. Last time (in 2005) they didn't wait for us to say yes. They simply played the recorded message after the intro "there's a message for you from the prime minister's office".
