Leader of the Janasetha Peramuna Venerable Battaramulle Seelarathana Thera states that if he comes into power he will abolish the executive presidency within seventy two hours.

He made this statement following his return to the country from a trip overseas.

[quote]We disagree with the executive presidency. If I come into power, I will abolish the executive presidency within seventy two hours. This country is as good as destroyed. It is for the sake of protecting this country that I come forward as a presidential candidate. I visited Geneva and have carried out many discussions with various individuals. Several political parties questioned me as to what decision we have taken to safeguard the unity of this country just like we defeated terrorism in the country. If it means to protect this country, I am ready to come forward as a common candidate from any party. If not, I will contest independently.[/quote]
