Party Hoppers

Today, another UNP member from the Uva Provincial Councillor crossed over to the UPFA. 

I have no problem with people crossing over or even voting in keeping with their conscience rather than by party directive. However, what I want to do here is to track those who cross over (i.e. the party hoppers). 

When the time for re-election comes up, it will be useful to look back on how each person, duly elected by the people of Sri Lanka as a representative of their party, has performed and whether they are worthy of re-election; to any party. 

If this information is already available someone please let me know and I will stop wasting my time by tracking it here :)

  1. I was disappointed that someone crossed over from the UNP to the UPFA. I would have preferred it f it was the other way round as the current SL Govt is too powerful, and I hope that people will leave the Govt to weaken them to the point that they are no longer the majority.
