Democratic Party (DP) Leader Sarath Fonseka said today that his party doesn’t have an obsession of a common candidate to be  put forward in an upcoming Presidential election unlike other political parties have.

“We don’t have a common candidate obsession unlike other political parties but we agree that there should be a strong candidate from the Opposition to contest in a Presidential Election,” Mr. Fonseka told a news briefing today.

Highlighting the party’s National Policy, he said the party was not in favour of abolishing of the Executive presidency completely. “The powers of the presidency should be curtailed but it should not be abolished,” he said.

He also said holding a public referendum is a more suitable way so that the people could decide whether they want to elect a President or a Prime Minister to govern the country. (Sanath Desmond and Lahiru Pothmulla
