President Gotabaya Rajapaksa today said that he will contest a second term at the next presidential election, making a u-turn from what he said earlier that he will hold the seat only for one term.

Speaking to heads of the media institutions, Rajapaksa, in a surprising statement said he is willing to contest at the next presidential race.  

"Not only next three years, but there are five years after that for me to implement my policies," Presidential Spokesperson Kingsley Ratnayake in a tweet, quoting the President said.
