Incumbent President will be UNP’s next candidate at Prez Poll - Harrison

Former MP and minister P. Harrison says that incumbent President Ranil Wickremesinghe will be the candidate of the United National Party, Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna and several other political parties at the next Presidential election.

He was speaking at the UNP Bala Mandala meetings in Baddegama and Akmeemana on Saturday. The forme Minister further said; “the UNP members had a great desire to elect a UNP President. Therefore, Sajith Premadasa was nominated for the 2019 Presidential election. He lost that election. Now we got a President from the United National Party. He is a national leader. He is the leader of all of us now”.

“Sajith Premadasa is good for social service work. He knows how to ask someone for something and distribute it. However, it is not enough to run a country and develop it”.

“He is like an elephant eating the woodapple pulp without breaking it. The elephants swallow the fruit whole, and when they poop, the fruit comes out intact. But when you crack the fruit open, they are empty. He is like that. He does not know anything more than just distributing the goods”.

“President Gotabaya Rajapaksa first invited Sajith Premadasa to take over as Prime Minister. He did not accept that responsibility. He ran away afraid to accept the challenges. That’s his nature. If President Ranil Wickremesinghe runs for the next Presidential election, Sajith will put forward Dullas. I am sure of that. I would like to say at this time that President Wickremesinghe will rebuild the fallen nation. We all have to support his effort”.
