TNA to canvass for UNP's presidential candidate

Tuesday August 13, 2019

The TNA has hinted that it will be canvassing for the candidate to be fielded by the UNP in the forthcoming presidential election.


Speaking at a party meeting held in Batticaloa on Monday, Mr M.A.Sumanthiran, the TNA's de-facto deputy leader, said his party is continuing to support the UNP government because it does not want a 'demon' to come to power.


The statement is seen as an allusion to Mr Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who was announced a day before as the presidential candidate of the SLPP.
