UNP Legal Secretary Nissanka Nanayakkara today said the candidate for the presidential election could be named only after the Election Commission notify the date to accept nominations for the election.

Mr. Nanayakkara issuing a statement said UNP’s constitution does not have provisions to name a candidate until such time election commission declares the presidential election.

Also, he said the candidate will be decided by a nomination board. “The nomination board will decide on the candidate and this decision will have to be ratified by the working committee of the party according to article 9(e) of the constitution,” he said.

This provision, he said, was introduced to the party’s constitution during the time of the late President J. R. Jayewardene. (Yohan Perera)
