A group staged a rally and a demonstration on July 12 as well, demanding that former UPFA Parliamentarian Duminda Silva be given nomination.

The demonstrators arrived in a procession and began their demonstration opposite the Mahaweli Centre in Colombo where nominations of the UPFA were being signed. Police requested the demonstrators to leave the premises as there was no responsible official at the centre at the time.

Thereafter, the demonstrators arrived at the opposition leader’s office and staged their demonstration there. As there was no one there either to hand over their letter of request, the demonstrators stated that they wanted to hand it over to the president. Thereafter, five demonstrators were given the opportunity to submit their letter to the Presidential Secretariat.
