In a momentous decision, the Working Committee of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) has unanimously selected Sajith Premadasa, the Party Leader, as their Presidential Candidate for the impending Presidential election.
The announcement came following a productive meeting held by the Working Committee in the evening.
Premadasa firmly asserted that planning the Presidential elections solely based on the directives of the President or those aligned with him would be an infringement on the democratic process. In an effort to ensure a fair and timely election, Premadasa vowed the Opposition’s backing to implement the necessary regulations required for conducting the Presidential elections promptly.
With the SJB rallying behind Sajith Premadasa as their Presidential Candidate, the stage is set for an intense electoral battle that will shape the future of Sri Lanka.
