UNP will win Presidential election by a landslide - Akila

The United National Party (UNP) will record a landslide victory at the forthcoming Presidential Election, UNP General Secretary and Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said.

“When analysing the last Local Government election result, 60 percent of candidates voted against the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna(SLPP). The majority of this 60 per cent is with the UNP now and therefore the UNP will obtain a landslide victory”

He said that the popularity of the SLPP is going down day by day, especially after the SLPP- led 52 day illegal government.

When asked about the present power crisis in the country, the Minister said that there are issues with the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) and promised to look into its activities.

The SLPP members who acted to defeat the several votes of the budget proposal will regret their decision for there are no allocations for Local Government institutions allocated through the budget since it was defeated.

“Most of these Local Government institutions are controlled by the SLPP and therefore they would be affected the most,” the Minister said.
