Sri Lankans eye brighter future

Many want to move on despite defeated candidate disputing presidential poll outcome.

    Mahinda Rajapaksa, Sri Lanka's newly re-elected president, is expected to dissolve parliament soon and set a date for legislative elections.

    Sarath Fonseka, his defeated rival, accuses the winner of manipulating the election process and vows to legally challenge the results of Tuesday's presidential poll.

    But as Mike Hanna reports from the capital, Colombo, some in the opposition just want to move on.
