United National Party (UNP) Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa today refused to comment on who will be the Prime Minister if he is elected President.
The UNP has said that Ranil Wickremesinghe will be the Prime Minister if Premadasa wins the election next month.
However, when asked about it at a media briefing today, Premadasa refused to comment saying the election in November is not about selecting a Prime Minister or a new cabinet but a new President.
He also maintained that he has not agreed to any conditions in order to be nominated as the Presidential candidate of the UNP-led United National Front. (Colombo Gazette)
