President Maithripala Sirisena said yesterday that he is not ready to retire and a new step will be taken after December.
The President said that he is in good health and would not retire in order to continue his agenda for the country and the people.
“Some people may be thinking that I will disappear since I haven’t said that I will contest for the presidential elections,” he said speaking at an event in Polonnaruwa on Saturday.
The President said a new phase of the country’s development program as well as the Polonnaruwa development would be launched in next December.
The ceremony was held to mark the opening of the Polonnaruwa Isipathana Welfare Society’s Community Hall.
The President also vested the OPD, clinical and administrative building constructed at the Welikanda Regional Hospital at a cost of Rs. 213 million with the public.

You are over the retiring age. What qualification do you have to do a job except being an MP.
