A soldier looks at campaign posters of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse, in Colombo December 17, 2009. Rajapakse today submitted his applications for the January 26, 2010 presidential elections, with his main contender being Sri Lanka's retired general Sarath Fonseka. Sri Lanka's election commissioner on Thursday accepted a record 22 nominations for the January presidential poll, in which economic policies, and not war strategy, are expected to dominate the campaign.
