JVP to join the Presidential race Featured

The JVP is ready to nominate a candidate to contest the 2019 Presidential election, said JVP-MP Bimal Ratnayake.

He noted that through the 20th Amendment they intend to cancel the Presidential election, but in the event the 20th Amendment cannot be passed, the JVP too would field a Presidential candidate at the next Presidential election.

However, he said that so far the party had not decided on who the candidate would be and they would discuss the matter in the future and decide on a suitable candidate. 

He emphasised though that the candidate they choose would be a member of the JVP and definitely not a common candidate.
