It was good to handover responsibilities relating to national security to Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka, National Peoples Movement (NPM) presidential candidate and former Army Commander Mahesh Senanayake said.

He said this responding to a question raised by a journalist with reference to remarks made by NDF presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa that he would give the highest possible responsibilities to Sarath Fonseka.

He said that he had come forward as a presidential candidate in order to safeguard the country which is in turmoil.

“My main priorities are to curb bribe and corruption, to uplift the economy and to ensure national security,” he said.

He further said, he only intended to develop the country together with patriots and he had no self-interest in becoming the president.

Meanwhile, he said the political journey of the National Peoples Movement (NPM) would not end after November 16, and had decided to move forward ahead of parliamentary elections. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Good call, let the racists get defeated. Country cannot move forward with one race, no country ever has in human history.

    If you do not have an self interest of becoming a president why did you gave nominations. Because you are not doing any favour to all other candidates. I respect you as a military man who brought glory to the country and you should also help a candidate who can lead the country like Gota

    Not self interest>But others want him

    Security officials have become a joke of the people by entering politics. We don't say you people to retire but you all should not contest the presidential election directly without having any political experience.

    CHULANI Tuesday, 15 October 2019 07:51 AM

    General Mahesh is only to sipon off some votes from Gota............votes of armed forces

    Shihan Tuesday, 15 October 2019 08:05 AM

    Kept it up sir ..

    So you already have a defeatist attitude? Hand over the Leadership to another please!

    Jayanath Tuesday, 15 October 2019 08:20 AM

    This guy is a complete traitor. When war is on he ran away. UNP always find this kind of hooligans who has no roots in this nation and make them big shots. That’s why I hate f....g UNP.

    SF is the best and most suitable to head national security .

    Prema Mahaegodage Tuesday, 15 October 2019 09:20 AM

    He should be pour next leader

    Ronnie Bugger Tuesday, 15 October 2019 10:21 AM

    Very good comment. Two heads are better than one.

    Liberal One Tuesday, 15 October 2019 11:02 AM

    Here is a prediction. Mahesh will fall out with NPM before the parliamentary election

    Pissu Poosa Tuesday, 15 October 2019 12:00 PM

    Similarly no issues with being Sajith President, He is doing a paid contract , to get some of GRs vote out of the basket.
