President Maithripala Sirisena said today that he had not decided on seeking another term in an election that is due by year-end, Reuters reported.

"I am not in a hurry to decide whether to stand," Sirisena told a news conference in New Delhi, a day after attending Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony.

Sirisena has faced criticism over his leadership after a string of deadly suicide bombings killed more than 250 people in the island nation on April 21.

    Lols, traitor. Judas has been put to shame by the way you have betrayed the people of this country. If you run, you are wasting space on the ballot paper.

    Good decision not to come forward as he knows what he will get Remember that Indian candidate who received only 5 votes when there were 9 members in his immediate family alone. Good lesson

    You have no leadership qualities. The best for you is take up farming and make this country self sufficient in agriculture. This is the only good thing you can do for ruining this country.
