JVP: Person with no electoral, political experience not fit to be President

The Presidential candidate nominated from the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna is the weakest member of the Rajapaksa faction, says the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP).

JVP Propaganda Secretary and Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath told news media in Colombo yesterday that Gotabaya Rajapaksa, throughout the past period,  had proved that he had no special abilities in maintaining financial discipline or administrative discipline.

Therefore, the JVP has no confidence that Rajapaksa is in a position to make constructive changes within the country, Herath said.

Herath argued that an individual who has not been a politician is not fit to be the leader of the country.

“We think that the presidential candidate should have good knowledge about Parliament, Provincial Councils, Local Government institutions, and the country and the people”, he explained.

In the past, too, our country had become the property of one family.

The leadership of the country was passed from the elder brother to the younger brother and from the father to the son. That is why our country has fallen into such a huge abyss, the JVP top-runger added.
