COLOMBO(News 1st) –  The Sri Lanka Podu Jana Peramuna convened a press briefing in Colombo last evening(January 29). During the briefing, Kumara Welgama, Udaya Gammanpila and Vasudeva Nanayakkara responded to the inquiries made by journalists.

Kumara Welgama stated that it has not been confirmed yet whether President Maithripala Sirisena will be nominated as the next Presidential candidate. He also added that they would refrain from making any comments related to the speculation on the possibility of Gotabaya Rajapaksa as the presidential candidate.

MP Udaya Gammanpila sharing his ideas on the matter said that although Gotabaya Rajapaksa says that he is prepared,  it is yet to be confirmed whether he will be the presidential candidate or not. He added that as an alliance they would reveal their presidential candidate after the declaration of a presidential election.

Finally, he added that Ranil Wickremesinghe, Sajith Premadasa, Karu Jayasuriya, self-appointed Champika Ranawaka and Sarath Fonseka all of them are possible candidates.

When MP Vasudeva Nanayakkara was asked whether he has any objections against Gotabaya Rajapaksa, he said “We have no such opposition against him. We will adjust to anything.”
