Another SJB candidate withdraws from Election

Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Galle district candidate Major (Rtd) Denat Paniyandoowage has withdrawn from contesting and pledged his support to the SLPP at the General Election 2020.

Major (Rtd) Paniyandoowage met with Prime Minister Rajapaksa at the latter’s residence at Wijerama Mawatha in Colombo after the resignation.

“No point in engaging in politics with leaders who have no backbones. That’s why I made this decision,” he said criticising SJB leaders.

He is the 2nd SJB candidate to withdraw from Election. Earlier this week former minister  Mangala Samaraweera also announced that he will not contest the Election.
