However, we would like to note that at the time we published our story, Dr. Peiris had not stated that he would not contest and through our sources, we had come to know that there was a growing protest over his re-election bid.

The APHNH had stated that Dr. Peiris would not contest only after the publication of our news.

Therefore, we stand by our facts while respecting the right to reply of parties concerned.
