New Democratic Front (NDF) presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa today sought the support of Sri Lankan expiates for his candidature.
In a letter to the Sri Lankan community living abroad, he said the presidential elections this November comes at a crucial time when our country stands at a veritable crossroad in its history, at a time when our democratic traditions, values and institutions as well as the rule of law, are constantly under threat.
He said, “As the candidate of the New Democratic Front at the forthcoming presidential election in Sri Lanka, I am addressing this letter to you Sri Lankan citizens abroad, seeking your support and your blessings for my candidature,” Mr. Premadasa said in the letter.
“The New Democratic Front and I, as its presidential candidate, are committed to transforming our Nation to a forward-looking modern, and a prosperous Nation, by leaving no one behind, by ending poverty and deprivation in all their forms and dimensions and by ensuring equal opportunities for all.
“I take this opportunity to urge all of you concerned sons and daughters of our motherland, to extend your unstinted support to the New Democratic Font and to me, to keep your motherland safe and secure for future generations.”
