No decision has been made to field DNA Leader Sarath Fonseka’s wife Anoma as the mayoral candidate of the Colombo Municipal Council at the upcoming local government elections, DNA MP Arjuna Ranatunga said yesterday. 

Mr. Ranatunga who was among several Parliamentarians who visited former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka at the Welikada prison said the DNA leader had not made any directions with regard to the local government elections yet.

“If Ms. Fonseka is contesting she will have to contest as the common opposition Mayoral candidate but no decision has been made yet with regard to the matter,” he said.

Mr. Ranatunga said General Fonseka’s health condition had improved but another medical check-up was expected soon.

He said prison officials had assured that a fan would be fixed in his cell by next week. A fan was requested for him following doctor’s advice.

UNP Co-Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa, MPs Ranjith Madduma Bandara, Ranjan Ramanayake and Tiran Alles accompanied Mr. Ranatunga to the prisons yesterday. (YP)

    Imtiyaz Bakir Markar can be a better choice as he would represent the Muslims,too.Besides,Sinhala and Tamil people will have no grudge against him,either.

    Totally agree. It is time political parties concentrate on suitable candidates so the the country can be run efficiently. We know what the three wheel driver did to the CMC.

    Why so late. That will be a best decision.
    Good Luck.
