Government MP Jayampathi Wickramaratne, who is a member of the United Left Front (ULF), said yesterday his party decided to support the presidential candidate of National People’s Power (NPP) Anura Kumara Dissanayake but would ask voters to mark their second preference for the strongest candidate who can defeat SLPP candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
