Hashim also mentioned that the Prime Minister had proposed that the potential candidate who has a mandate of a majority, and the ability to win the Presidential election will be selected at the upcoming meeting.
If by any chance the group including the Prime Minister, does not select Minister Sajith Premadasa as the party’s presidential candidate, will Sajith remain quiet?
In response, Minister Kabir Hashim said that just a group could not make any such decision to select the candidate and that the most suitable candidate will be selected, one who is capable of winning and has the people’s mandate.
