Common candidate from JVP? Featured

The JVP has decided to field a common candidate for the upcoming elections, party propaganda secretary - Vijitha Herath says.

Speaking to 'Sri Lanka Mirror' on rumours citing that the JVP will be fielding a candidate, Mr. Herath said that the symbol of the candidate would not be the 'Bell' symbol of the JVP.

He added that it could be an alliance of several political parties and civil organisations.

Except for former JVP leaders - Rohana Wijeweera and Nanda Gunatillake, no other party member had contested a presidential election.
