UNP MP Navin Dissayanayake said yesterday a common candidate would be fielded by the United National Front (UNF) at the upcoming presidential election.

He said this when a group of UNP MPs met the Mahanayake Theras of the Malwathu and Asgiri Chapters in Kandy yesterday.

The MP said the UNF was ready to face a presidential election if the Supreme Court ruled against the holding of a general election.

He told Anunayake of the Malwatte Chapter the Ven. Dimbulkumbure Wimaladharma Thera that it was possible to hold both presidential and general elections at the same time and added that even the incumbent president could contest the election.

The MP said it was not advisable to go for an election because of the prevailing chaotic situation in parliament and said how a peaceful election could be held in the country when a vote could not be taken in parliament. (Nadeeka Daya Bandara)

    All the thugs from both parties are responsible for the chaotic situation that arose in Parliament and the President is personally responsible for all the mess.

    The people of the country are not the same as parliamentarians. Give us the vote, we will choose our representatives. If you are afraid of the vote because of the surge in popularity of MR, please say so clearly so that we can find another way. We are voting for peace, and we will vote against any party who initiates or incites violence, racism or division among our people. if you try and start another Black July like your political grandfather JR we will make sure that this is your politicall Kanatte.

    Power at any cost. Completely took the country into stagnation with one common candidate, now trying to repeat the same so they can hold a few ministerial posts.

    In 2015, you choose MS as common presidential candidate and brought him to power and now he ran away from you. Now another new?

    Well, UNP should stop the common candidate bullshit and field a UNP candidate.

    UNP has so much talented candidates like Sajith P , Harin F , Naveen D , SO why look for common candidates ? .

    sach Wednesday, 21 November 2018 08:10 PM

    Sri Lanka needs a general election, UNP might need a presidential election, because of the parippuwa they ate from their past common candidate but SL needs a GE
