Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Uva Provincial Councilman Samantha Vidyaratna says that the upcoming presidential election would be an election that paves the way for a new political trend.
He expressed these views commenting to the media, in Mahiyangana.
He further said that JVP, in alliance with several other organizations, would present a common candidate to contest at the upcoming presidential polls.
He emphasized that, since the last presidential election victory was decided by only a small percentage, no party could win this time.
He further elaborated that a 5% vote should be obtained at the election to be legally appointed as President.
