Hirunika Premachandra has decided to temporarily step down from politics on the basis that the political climate is not favorable for her.
Premachandra, the daughter of slain politician Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra, said that she also needs proper backing to get fully engaged in politics.
Hirunika Premachandra is currently studying law and she says once her law exams are over she will decide on her next step.
“It is hard to do politics in Sri Lanka. I have spoken to my family and I will decide about my political future at the right time,” she said.
She also expressed confidence in the judiciary to get justice for the murder of her father.
