Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa says he respects United National Front Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa despite differences on policies.
Rajapaksa posted an image on his official Facebook account of him greeting Premadasa at the National Elections Commission today.
“Meeting and greeting Mr. Sajith Premadasa, the UNP presidential candidate today at the Elections Office endorses my genuine belief that; contenders can and do disagree on principles and policies but still remain respectful of one another. Ultimately, it’s the People and the Nation who must be victorious,” Gotabaya Rajapaksa said in the Facebook post.
Rajapaksa and Premadasa were at the National Elections Commission today to hand over their nomination papers to contest the Presidential elections next month.
