Former Minister Basil Rajapaksa says the next President will be from the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP).
He said that before the year 2019 ends he expects a President to be elected from the SLPP-led new alliance.
Rajapaksa said this while speaking at an event today, the SLPP media unit said.
He said that the SLPP has performed better than the Sri Lanka Freedom Party, the United National Party and the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna in some districts at the last elections and will do better at future elections.
Basil Rajapaksa also said that the main fight of his party right now is not against Ranil Wickremesinghe, Sajith Premadasa or Navin Dissanayake but against international conspirators. (Colombo Gazette)
