Leader of the JVP Anura Kumara Dissanayake says that the government is planning to conduct a presidential election.

[quote]A presidential election is due to be held in January 2017.However, the government is planning to conduct this election two years before the due date. They know that it is difficult to maintain their rule for another two years. He has two more years to hold on to the executive powers which seem limitless. However, a new camp is being created which opposes these powers. According to what we have heard, Ranil Wickremesinghe has decided to contest for the presidential election.

This is a derisive time. While a front is being created with Ranil Wickremesinghe at its helm, another front is being created to prolong the tenure of President Rajapaksa. We believe that neither camp will be able to steer this country to a more prosperous future. We should create a formidable force against these two major camps. Let us create this force to bring about broad reforms in the country’s political arena.[/quote]
