President Mahinda Rajapaksa says that he will contest for a third term in office.
Addressing a public rally in the Polgahawela area the President stated that there has been a discussion about a common candidate and remarked that he is the actual common candidate.
He shared these views;
[quote]We remained in the opposition for 17 years. We launched Pada Yathras, we held protests, we made noise and we got here from the roads. we did not go into public markets to distribute leaflets, we carried out our fight while standing in the middle of roads and while sitting down on the bare pavements. We will run for a third term in office and I clearly state that we will win a third term in office. As long as you are with us we will continue. They are searching for a common candidate, I don’t understand this. Is there anyone more qualified to be a common candidate than I am? There is no other common candidate, all other candidates contest alone. [/quote]
