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.

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.
