Maithri reveals SLFP’s presidential candidate



Former President Maithripala Sirisena has said that Minister Wijayadasa Rajapakshe will be the presidential candidate of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) at the upcoming election.

He said this while joining the commemoration ceremony of the late T.B. Ilangaratne.

Noting that Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe has the majority support in the party, Mr. Sirisena further said, “I have previously served as President and pledged not to contest for the presidency again. Mr. Wijayadasa will run for the upcoming presidential election, and we will support him completely… We got a minister from the ruling party… He is aligned with us now. He doesn’t desire the ministerial position any longer.”
