Parliamentary Elections Day

Today was the parliamentary elections so just about everything was closed and the government declared tomorrow a "bank holiday" not to be confused with a regular holiday, but pretty much means that any business that needs an excuse to close shop has one.

I monitored the Twitter updates during the election and looks like there was only nominal violence.

Wait, did I mention why the government of Sri Lanka declared a holiday tomorrow? Officially, there was no reason, just because; Really it's because there IS a chance of violence so the government figures, hey take the day off and relax instead of getting mad that the guy you voted for didn't win!
