Incumbent Ranil Wickremesinghe is certain to contest at the next presidential election, said UNP general secretary Palitha Range Bandara.
Speaking to journalists at Sirikotha yesterday (01), Range Bandara said Wickremesinghe, among the country’s leaders, is the internationally-acclaimed, experienced leader who takes decisions without fear or suspicion.
His decisions have enabled the national economy to record a higher revenue after 25 years, claimed the UNP general secretary.
That will enable granting relief for the people, he said.
Range Bandara charged that certain power-hungry persons were now trying to mislead the public after evading their responsibility when people were suffering in queues.
