United People’s Freedom Alliance Parliamentarian DV Chanaka says the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna will name a Rajapaksa as the Presidential candidate.

Speaking during a media briefing in Embilipitiya MP Chanaka said a Presidential Election is crucial as it elects a leader to represent and lead the country for a period of time.

The Parliamentarian noted therefore individuals named as contenders should be appointed by prioritizing the public’s demand and not according to the discretion of political parties.

Meanwhile MP DV Chanaka on a separate note said the Presidential candidate cannot be determined based on the results of the Local Authorities Election.
