Canvass | Definition of Canvass by Merriam-Webster

Those who go to Jaffna are kept silent. But all are not so. There are good officers. An IGP who can&rsquo t be controlled even by the President is trying to bring victory for the Yahapalana Government. The officers who went to Vavuniya from Colombo have not approved the speech of the IGP. The Police Officers in Vavuniya have not approved his speech. Nobody has talked about it.

On election night, no clear winner emerged. Print and broadcast media cited often contradictory exit-polling numbers, and the races in Oregon and New Mexico would remain too close to call for some days. Ultimately, the contest focused on Florida. Networks initially projected Gore the winner in Florida, but later they declared that Bush had opened an insurmountable lead. Gore called Bush to concede the election, but in the early hours of the following morning it became apparent that the Florida race was much closer than Gore’s staff had originally believed. Fewer than 655 votes separated the candidates, and that margin appeared to be narrowing. About 8:55 am Gore called a stunned Bush to retract his concession.

Addressing an election meeting in Mahiyawa, Kandy, Mr. rajapaksa said the IGP was addressing Police Officers in Vavuniya asking whether the Yahapalana Government is good? And two police officers who went there from Colombo said &ldquo Yes Sir&rdquo by approving IGP&rsquo s speech.

"We will never, never, never give up seeking justice for the victims of banks and financial services," Opposition Leader Bill Shorten thundered from the despatch box. "We will never, never give up seeking a banking royal commission."

The IGP who expressed his views implicitly to vote for Yahapalana Government, stresses the fact that the vote should be cast to the Yahapalana Government. The IGP has no right to do so. This is against the election law. We are making arrangements to complain regarding this. The IGP has no right at all to canvass votes on behalf of the politician, he said. (Nadeeka Daya Bandara)
