Fonseka to contest Parliament polls

Sarath FonsekaDemocratic Party leader, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka says he will contest the next Parliament elections.

Fonseka said that he will contest together with other members of his political party and will later decide who to support once the elections are over.

He also said that his wife Anoma Fonseka will also contest the next Parliament elections.

Fonseka lost his Parliament seat after his civic rights were removed by the former Government.

However President Maithripala Sirisena restored all his rights and military accolades and also promoted him to the rank of Field Marshal.

The former Army Commander meanwhile said that he has no issues with the United National Party or the Sri Lanka Freedom Party but the Democratic Party will contest the elections independently.

He also denied reports of a rift between him and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. THIS GUY FEELS HIGHLY INSECURE & INFERIOR (although he stands tall), thats why this guy keep possessing power in different branches of the Gov.
    This time around, this guy will have nowhere to run….when we speak loud in the next election.

  2. Sure he should contest! He got the Field Marshal state.Now the next target, presidency! And why only Anoma? Get the whole kith and kin to contest!
    These are the meglomaniac stupid people who think they are indispensable. We respect him for the part he played in ending the war. And we gave him the Field Marshall status which guarantees so many perks and life time pension. Why not now really retire and enjoy life. Why do you want just like the previous megalomaniac president reach for more and more perks! Let the parliament fill with capable legislators and not with retired army personnel. Governance need brains not brawn!

    • Everybody has the right to express himself but I think that should be done in a decent manner! Don’t Play Vasudeva!

    • So eloquent cultured words from a die hard Rajapaksa supporter. Use of the word bastard am I to understand you have personal experience been one or stab in the dark. Use the word FOOL to describe SF, this is a quota for your benefit jay. Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain – most fools do.

  4. Please mention the name of a politician who does not
    have a rift with PM Ranil. The president must rein in PM
    Ranil, if he wants to win the next election, other wise let
    UNP contest on its own without an electoral pact with
    SLFP
