Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna founder and former Minister Basil Rajapaksa yesterday (10) said that his party’s candidate for the upcoming Presidential Election will be announced soon.

He pointed out that the SLPP is ready for any election, “A candidate who can win the upcoming Presidential Election will be presented by the party and that victory will determine the future of the country,” he said.

He was speaking at the opening of National Election Operation Office at the Party Head office at Battaramulla yesterday.

“Even the SLPP is ready for the upcoming presidential election and the candidate for that has not been decided yet,” he said.

Rajapaksa said that the President Ranil Wickremesinghe has made a statement that he will announce his position before May 18, and he said that he will make a decision regarding the candidate from his party very soon.

The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) inaugurated its National Election Operations Office under the patronage of the party’s founder and former Minister, Basil Rajapaksa.

This new office, established adjacent to the party headquarters on Nelum Mawatha, Battaramulla, aims to secure victory in future elections.

The timing of the office opening is notable, occurring just one day after the Election Commission announced the date for the upcoming Presidential election.

The operations at this office involve coordination with 14,000 village party officials across Sri Lanka, facilitated by a data system supported by 160 computers.

A specially created task force oversees these efforts, with former Southern Province Governor Willie Gamage serving as the head of the election operations office.
