Would have liked if Sajith ran for President as Party Leader-Navin

The National Organiser of the United National Party Minister Navin Dissanayake is saying that he would have liked to see Sajith Premadasa run for the presidency as the leader of the party.

Speaking at Nuwara Eliya yesterday (13 Oct) Dissanayake, who is also Minister of Plantation Industries, said that it was by chance Premadasa emerged to face the election this time as ” one year ago he told me that he would run for the presidency only after taking the leadership of the party.”

He was speaking at a party constituency council meeting and the video of his speech was posted on his Facebook page.

But in politics, he said, one has to make some choices based on the situation which may be unfavourable at times.
