Former President and Member of Parliament Mahinda Rajapaksa said that the candidate presented by his side was defeated in the election to elect the successor president.

Mahinda Rajapaksa said this in response to questions posed by journalists when he was leaving the parliament today (20).

“We nominated Dullas. We voted. But we lost. However, someone has to win.”

“Ranil Wickremesinghe got more votes and he was elected as the president. That is what happened. We are watching to see what happens in the future. No matter which government is elected, they have to work for the people.”

Speaking of the various views expressed he said, “There are various opinions. One group says that this is what the people want. We say this is what the people want.”

“I feel that now this is enough protesting. The youth engaged in the Galle Face protest must now go out and work.”

A journalist asked Mahinda Rajapaksa if he voted for Ranil Wickremesinghe. He said, “No not exactly.”

Journalist : “Will your party intervene in forming a government in the future?

Mahinda Rajapaksa : “We have still not taken a decision on it. I am agreeable to any decision taken by the party.”
