Sajith Premadasa, Presidential Candidate:
“As the future president of this country, I will establish special task forces to eradicate corruption. We will ensure that all politicians and other individuals who engage in any corrupt activity will be punished.
I stress, my government has no room for perpetrators, or any faction that misused national assets, looted from the general public, or engaged in corrupt activities.
As the president, when I recruit officers, I will not appoint anyone linked to corruption. I challenged my opponent to come forward for an open debate with me. But to date, he has not accepted my challenge. If my opponent is afraid to come forward for debate, his brother can accompany him. Sajith Premadasa is ready to face him alone.”
