With speculation that Parliament’s dissolution is only days away, pre-election campaign posters have started appearing in parts of Colombo and suburbs. This follows a pattern similar to those of recent elections. One can remember that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s image started appearing in almost every nook and corner of Colombo long before the announcement of the last Presidential Election. The posters appearing now seem to be following the same trend. (Pic by Ravindra Dharmathilake)
