The National Democratic Alliance (NDF) will be formed soon and a candidate will be named shortly, Prime Minister Rani Wickremesighe said on Saturday.

“We have chosen a candidate in line with our policies and we will name him at the right time,” the Prime Minister said.

Speaking during the launch of Bogambara Cultural Centre in Kandy, the Prime Minister said the NDF will be formed shortly as an agreement has been reached among the allies of NDF on the constitution of the proposed alliance.

“We will form the NDF shortly and will select a suitable candidate for the presidency in line with our agreed policies,” he said. (Yohan Perera and J.A.L. Jayasinghe)

    So he has accepted defeat from his own party before people

    No, wrong. The man if he gets to be the nominee is already a loser. Characteristic of the dog in the manger mentality.

    What are you talking about a suitable candidate. The most suitable candidate to the man on the street and upper and middle community is already clamoring for Sajith so just go ahead and endorse the name if you know what's good for you,

    We have choosen ? All ready choosen ? Who are this we Mr. Ranil ? you have supressed democracy in UNP as never before. We will never vote for a undemocratic leader like you or a person choosen by you. Let the party members select the candidate as in USA, UK, EU countries, etc.

    This means Karu not SP as the latter is for a mixed economy and is against privatizations.
