Anura to contest from another party as common candidate

The JVP Leader Anura Kumnara Dissanayake nominated by the Jathika Jana Balawegaya would contest the presidency under the Democratic National Alliance, it is reported.

The Secretary of the Democratic National Alliance is JVP-MP Vijitha Herath.

It is also reported that talks are underway to remove the Democratic National Alliance logo, the trophy.

The Elections Secretariat said that prior to the announcement of the election date, registered parties could change their logos if desired.

However, as the Elpitiya Pradeshiya Sabha election is scheduled to be held, new parties cannot be registered.
