UNP cannot extend President’s term willy-nilly – AKD

<p><img src="" alt="Featured Image"></p><p><!-- wp:html --><p>The UNP cannot extend President Ranil Wickremesinghe's tenure as desired and statements made by UNP bigwigs like Wajira Abeywardena and Palitha Range Bandara indicate their own acknowledgement that Wickremesinghe cannot win an election, National People's Power (NPP) Leader, Anura Kumara Dissanayaka stressed. </p>
<p>"The Presidential Election should be held as scheduled," Dissanayaka asserted. "However, Range Bandara suggested that Ranil Wickremesinghe should be given more years without holding the Presidential Election. I emphatically tell Range Bandara that there is no room for that in Sri Lanka. Similarly, Wajira Abeywardena has mentioned giving Ranil another few years. These statements show that they know Ranil Wickremesinghe cannot win an election," he said. </p>
<p>Dissanayaka claimed that current Sri Lankan political sentiments are centred on the NPP. </p>
<p>"A large number of people who have voted for different parties at different times have gathered around the NPP this time. The NPP is winning because many people who previously supported other parties have joined us."</p>
<p>He highlighted the reasons for this support: "Why are people who previously had no interest in politics and voted for other parties gathering around us? Everyone works hard to give their children a good education. But today, parents have to bear a huge burden for tuition, making school education difficult. Providing proper education to children has become a significant burden for parents. We assure you that we will free you from that burden and make education the responsibility of the Government."</p>
