Mr. Siripalaha a loyalist of former Chief Minister Berty Premalal Dissanayake obtained 21 votes while his rival Amarakeerthi Athukorala who is also a UPFA member received 10 votes.

It is speculated that Mr. Dissanayake and his loyalists had voted for Mr. Siripala but Opposition Leader of the North Central Provincial Council K. Nelson commenting on the matter said he was not aware whether the former Chief Minister voted for the UNP nominee or not.
