UPFA Parliamentarian Vasudeva Nanayakkara today claimed that he and several other MPs were personally told by President Maithripala Sirisena that he had no problem with former president Mahinda Rajapaksa contesting and functioning as the Prime Minister if elected.

Speaking at a media briefing held at Abayaramaya, Narahenpita Mr. Nanayakkara said:

“Even though President Sirisena has not yet extended his agreement officially, he has told us in private that he would agree with our mission of getting Mr. Rajapaksa to the Prime Ministerial post. So, we warmly welcome his opinion.” (Piyumi Fonseka)

    Who is this man to give decisions on-behalf of people elected President? Country has lost faith in MR and rejected him. VN and MR can rest now. Let the younger generation charge.
