COLOMBO (News 1st) – Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa had invited Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa for an open debate. Both factions expressed their views in this regard.
NDF Presidential Candidate Sajith Premadasa says Gotabaya Rajapaksa is yet to respond to his challenge for a presidential debate.
Sajith Premadasa says Sri Lanka’s voters deserve a President who is not afraid of defending their ideas and deserve a President with the courage to face challenges rather than flee in the face of fear.
UPFA MP Namal Rajapaksa noted that Sajith Premadasa should answer questions posed by Wasantha Senanayake before inviting Gotabaya Rajapaksa for a debate.
UPFA MP Bandula Gunawardena noted that Gotabaya should deny the invitation for debate with Sajith Premadasa because Gotabaya Rajapaksa should never demean himself.
Journalist: Basil Rajapaksa said Gotabaya Rajapaksa agreed to be a part of a debate?
UPFA MP Bandula Gunawardena noted that still, they do not approve it.
Minister Ranjan Ramanayake:
“Even if the ancestors of Gotabaya Rajapaksa urged him to come forward for a debate, he would never do so.
Gotabaya Rajapaksa was in the USA, he must have seen how Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton came forward for an open debate. Even Barack Obama was in an open debate before that.
Russia’s Putin, India’s Narendra Modi, Lee Kuwan Yoo, they all came forward for open debates with their opponents.
If Gotabaya Rajapaksa wishes he could have his brother with him. He could use the CALL A FRIEND option to seek assistance from his brother to answer the questions posed at the debate. Whatever the options are, he must come forward for debate and answer the questions.”
