Nawa Sihala Urumaya (New Sinhala Heritage) leader Sarath Manamendra today pledged to support President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the upcoming Presidential Election.

He had also contested in the January 2010 presidential election getting 0.09% of votes.
His party contested the April 2010 general election as a part of the Democratic National Alliance led by Sarath Fonseka. However, it was expelled from the DNA in November 2010.
The Nawa Sihala Urumaya has no seats in Parliament or any of the provincial councils.
