Minister of Power, Energy and Business Development Ravi Karunanayake said they have no dispute over the presidential candidate from the UNP, despite many disputes raised by other parties. 

The Minister made these comments in addressing the media after attending the annual Perahera Festival held at the Bellanwila Raja Maha Vihara.

"We on appropriate time would nominate the suitable candidate," he said "99% of the election manifesto we presented last year is over. Abolishing the executive presidency was the only thing we failed at achieving."  

However, all necessary measures for the election have already been prepared, the Minister added.

The Presidential Election would be held before the Provincial Council Election, he added.
