Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa would make an official statement to the public on his stance of contesting at the Parliamentary Elections, his Spokesman Rohan Weliwita said today.

He said Mr. Rajapaksa would declare whether he would contest or not next Wednesday July 1, at 10.00 a.m. at Medamulana.

Mr. Weliwita said his statement would respond to all the various media reports based on several politicians’ statements about Mr. Rajapaksa’s contesting.

“Several gossip websites and newspapers had predicted a lot and had said so many things quoting Mr. Rajapaksa. July 1 will provide response to them,” Mr. Weliwita said.

He did not say if there would be a media briefing or public meeting where Mr. Rajapaksa planned to make his announcement. (Piyumi Fonseka)

    Horri Jimonis Monday, 29 June 2015 06:31 AM

    Even if you worship in the temple being upside down, God will not forgive you for all the sins you committed for our nation.

    J Palitha Monday, 29 June 2015 06:32 AM

    With this election you and your entire family will be cursed by the public.

    Horri Jimonis Monday, 29 June 2015 06:34 AM
