Matara people fulfilled their duty – Speaker

Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena said that he made a request to the people to appoint six Parliamentarians from the Matara District, and they fulfilled it without selling their preferential votes for money. He was addressing a meeting in Mawarala recently.

The Speaker said that certain candidates at the last General Election spent huge sums of money to gain votes, but they did not receive what they expected. He said the Government led by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa is a tower of strength and a beacon of hope for the people.

He said that the Government has commenced a massive transformation in all spheres and will uplift the financial and economic situation of the people before long. He said that he will serve the people of Matara to their utmost satisfaction and the confidence kept on him will be protected throughout his political journey.
