Vice President of the SJB and former Minister P Harrison said a Presidential Election will likely be held in June or July next year and he will unconditionally support President Wickremesinghe.

Speaking to media in Anuradhapura, former MP Harrison said a large number of former members of local government bodies and contestants filed nominations for the Local Authorities Election under the SJB ticket have expressed their support to the President.

He said several prominent members of the SJB will join hands with the President in the next few weeks.

Meanwhile, former Minister and SJB MP Rajitha Senaratne who has been in the centre of crossover talks in recent weeks says everyone must get together and work for the betterment of the country at this juncture.

He said after solving the pressing issues, parties can contest elections separately.
