The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna says that they would not field a candidate for the election to be held in parliament on the 20th.

Issuing a special statement, the SLPP said, “If the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, which has the majority power in the current Parliament, nominates a candidate for the parliamentary (internal) poll to elect a new president, it would go against the aforementioned expectation. Therefore, it is our party's decision not to present a candidate for the election of a new president.”

Meanwhile, Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena had said during the party leaders’ meeting held at 10 am today (15) that the nominations for presidency would be called on the 19th as decided previously and the vote would be taken on the 20th.
