Referring to the Presidential elections, Dissanayake said the SLFP has been holding discussions with the Sri Lanka Podhujana Peramuna and a member parties of the alliance regarding the formation of a single front to fight the Presidential polls on the basis that President Sirisena shall be the Presidential candidate.
It is common for Gotabaya Rajapaksa or any other person who holds dual citizenship. As such it is a political mockery that a person holding dual citizenship is behaving like a Presidential candidate.
He emphasised that the law shall be enforced whether the gallows revived or not.
Also steps shall be taken to stop unlawful activities, alleged to have been taking place in the prisons. Narcotic detection activities at present has reached a turning point, since the President has decided to take on the drug mafia.
