A common candidate to represent leftist parties including the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) will be fielded for the presidential elections, MP Nalinda Jayatissa said today (17) addressing a press briefing held at the JVP head office.

This candidate will be a person who respects democracy, he added.

Addressing the press briefing, MP Jayatissa further said that Maithripala Sirisena has completely destroyed the country’s hopes of a common candidate.

But we will field a candidate who is capable of developing the country, he said, adding that that candidate is not a person who is coming from the United National Party (UNP), Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) or any other party.
