Mahinda Rajapaksa

Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa waves to supporters during his final public rally for the presidential election in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Saturday, Jan. 23, 2010. Sri Lanka’s ruling party plans to instigate violence to keep voters from the ballot box in an attempt to secure victory during the upcoming presidential election, the main opposition candidate alleged Saturday. The accusation came on the last day of bitter campaigning between the two main architects of last year’s victory over the Tamil Tiger rebels _ the incumbent President Mahinda Rajapaksa and former army chief Sarath Fonseka _ who are vying for the presidency at Tuesday’s vote.
