Wasantha Senanayake joins SLPP to support Gotabhaya Rajapaksa in the presidential election
State Minister Wasantha Senanayake has officially joined the SLPP today (08) in support of the Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa. Accordingly, Senanayake has joined the SLPP presidential rally in Manampitiya, Polonnaruwa.
At a media briefing recently Wasantha Senanayake said he would no longer join the UNP for any reason. He further stated that a decision will be taken regarding the future political career as soon as possible.
However, his political decision was delayed by a few days. The reason for this was because Wasantha Senanayake who was shifting his party from day to day, did not even know for certain which party he was in when the media conference was held. Following closure to the press conference Senanayake has asked his secretary in which party he currently resides.
The secretary has failed to provide a direct answer, and after several rounds of talks, the minister and the secretary have revealed themselves which party Wasantha Senanayake is at. It has also been revealed that Mr. Wasantha Senanayake has changed the party once during the media briefing and during the talks of determining which party he was at.
Upon revealing that he still resides in the UNP, Senanayake has contacted the Gota faction and informed he is ready to take on his stage this evening.
Considering his shiftings, it will not be surprising if Wasantha Senanayake appears on Sajith Premadasa's stage tomorrow.
