JJB presidential candidate on August 18

The Jathika Jana Balavegaya (JJB), which comprises the JVP, the National Bhikku Front and 28 other organizations, will reveal their presidential candidate on August 18 at the Galle Face Green, National Bhikku Front (NBF) Secretary Ven. Handugala Rathanapala Thera said yesterday.

The NBF called on all bhikkus, other religious leaders and the citizens to join hands with the new candidate to direct the country to a new path instead of choosing the same old path that reaches “a dead end”.

“Buddhist monks along with other religious leaders have endorsed a set of recommendations for candidates who stand for elections.

The person we put forward would not be typical like those from the major political parties.

Instead he will uphold the recommendations by religious leaders. We do not focus on an individual; it is the work plan that is most important,” the Ven. Thera said.
