The UPFA convened a media briefing in Colombo on Friday.

SLFP General Secretary, Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa shared these views:

[quote]Common Opposition Candidate Maithripala Sirisena said that our President did not know he would become a candidate. I believe that for a respected individual who left, this was not an action that should have been taken. This government is aimed at creating a fast track development for this country. We have created a stable government and recorded the lowest level of turmoil in our country. I don’t think that there has been another government which has brought about stability in this country’s economy, society and politics as we have done after we received independence.[/quote]

Journalists posed several questions. A question arose regarding connections between the government and the BBS.

Deputy Minister of Investment Promotion, Faizer Mustapha replied:

[quote]If the government has ties with the BBS I don’t think I would be doing justice to my community. But I know that I could support anyone if I work according to my conscience, but if I know that the government is working directly or indirectly with the BBS then I cannot continue in politics.[/quote]
