Ready for the Presidential battle- Ruwan
Defense Minister Ruwan Wijewardena says he will extend his support to a person nominated by the party as the presidential candidate. The Minister was responding to a question raised by journalists after a program in Colombo.
He said that only the Working Committee could not take this decision and that all members of the House of Commons and the Parliamentary Group should discuss the matter together and take a decision.
He also stated that he agrees with any decision taken by the party. Mr. Ruwan Wijewardena said that if Sajith Premadasa, the speaker or the Prime Minister does not have any problem, he will have no problem supporting anyone. Journalists questioned whether Ruwan Wijewardene would not contest as the Presidential candidate. Responding to this, the Minister of State said that there are more mature people in the party than him and that he would take such a decision on behalf of the people’s voice to come forward if the people need him.
