(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) – The Central Committee of the United Left Front, having considered the clear and present danger to Sri Lankan democracy from Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the extremist forces behind him, yesterday called upon party members and the general public to support the candidate of the New Democratic Front contesting under the Swan symbol, who is the candidate most capable of defeating Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

“If any party members wish to support the candidate of the Jathika Jana Balavegaya, in accordance with the decision of the Central Committee taken on 26.09.2019 to vote for the candidate of the Jathika Jana Balavegaya, and cast the second preference to the candidate most capable of defeating Gotabaya Rajapaksa, he or she could do so, but must, at every possible occasion, call open the people to cast their second preference as aforesaid,” stated the resolution, passed on 23 October at the meeting of the Central Committee of the United Left Front on the forthcoming Presidential Elections.

After the resolution was passed, Comrade Lal Wijenayake resigned from the post of Secretary, and Comrade Keerthi Kariyawasam, former Member of the Western Provincial Council, was unanimously elected Secretary of the United Left Front.
