Democratic Party Leader Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka would contest the general elections from the Colombo District, while his wife Anoma Fonseka would contest from the Gampaha District under the flaming torch symbol, the party said.

Ananda Manawadu, the General Secretary of the party said the nominations lists for the two districts was handed over today and said the lists for other districts would be handed over tomorrow or on Monday.

“However, we will not contest in the Jaffna and the Vanni Districts. Nalin Pradeep will lead the Colombo team, while Anurudda Lekamge will lead the team from Gampaha,” he said.

He said Colombo-East Organiser Dhanuna Thilakaratne and Ranmali Gunawardena would contest from Colombo, while Indika Bandara and Nihal Antony would contest from Gampaha.

The campaign of the party had been scheduled to be launched on Saturday in Hambantota, he said.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    After the sell out by MY3 this is the most crucial election in the country. Do not waste your vote on Fonseka family.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 10 July 2015 01:14 PM

    Ha ha, another Family Party.

    Prem Nath Friday, 10 July 2015 10:37 AM

    Pres.Sirisena had pledged in his election manifesto that,family politics will not be allowed.But this trend is now blowing out of proportion.Or did he target only the Rajapakses?

    kamalhot1 Friday, 10 July 2015 08:54 AM

    You better be out of politics, and support some anti corruption organisation with you skills Sir. We respect you and do not like to see others condemn you.

    Dakuna Friday, 10 July 2015 07:51 AM

    Because SF could not find any other candidates to field.

    lakshman Friday, 10 July 2015 07:50 AM

    Sarath Fonseka has an highly overestimated self esteem.At least last time with DNA he managed to get elected.Going alone he is only marching towards political oblivion.Shows political immaturity.Let him at least enjoy the perks attached to his Field Marshall title.(for how long if MR returns to power ?)

    Wijay Friday, 10 July 2015 07:06 AM

    Welvidane(field Marshall) is highly critical of nepotism. We should not blame him, because who else will agree to contest from his party?

    Observer Friday, 10 July 2015 05:23 AM

    Everyone is OK with "PAWUL PALANAYA"? Whay is happening to this poor country?

    The women in the back, all she want to do is get on the camera, to hell with politics.

    Waco Friday, 10 July 2015 03:45 AM

    Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka and the team. Wish you all the best.

    Jayan Thursday, 09 July 2015 03:54 PM

    Family tree is growing slowly.

    garawi Friday, 10 July 2015 12:43 AM

    Looks like he has got influenced by MR to set up a family government!!!

    Sri Friday, 10 July 2015 12:32 AM

    OMG!!!

    Hemantha Fernando Thursday, 09 July 2015 10:56 PM

    How come SF complains about pawul palanaya when he comes with wife and son-in-law? Funny Fonny.

    Man Thursday, 09 July 2015 05:03 PM

    Unlike SLMC, Digambaran, Sashi Ganeshan, etc. they want to show their strength.

    Mojo Thursday, 09 July 2015 04:57 PM

    How about “family-party”

    Dinithi Thursday, 09 July 2015 04:36 PM

    is this a family or a party?

    Gihan Thursday, 09 July 2015 04:26 PM

    All your votes are back with UNP. Be prepared to retire from politics.

    Ruwan Thursday, 09 July 2015 04:25 PM

    what? husband, wife and son in law? these are people who accuse other of family politics.

    GC Thursday, 09 July 2015 04:09 PM

    Another family affair with husband, wife and (ex?) son-in-law? Too many in a small Party. At least join UNP/Swan so that it does not look so bad among the many.

    Ryan Hudson Thursday, 09 July 2015 04:09 PM

    no nepotism at all

    simon Thursday, 09 July 2015 04:05 PM

    So called educated future politicians !

    ANTON Thursday, 09 July 2015 04:01 PM

    DAUGHTERS FOR NEW YORK ,..............
