Gota ready for debate after Sajith’s manifesto: Namal
SLPP parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa today said SLPP presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa was ready to face a debate with New Democratic Front (NDF) candidate Sajith Premadasa, provided Premadasa unveils his manifesto first.
Namal Rajapaksa taking to his twitter handle further said once Premadasa’s manifesto is unveiled, there would be ‘substance’ for the debate.
However, he said if the opposition camp insisted on the dabate, he(Namal) was ready to face Premadasa.
Premadasa and party members have repeatedly called on the former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa for a one-on-one live television debate.
Rajapaksa unveiled his manifesto on 25 Oct. Premadasa is set to launch his election manifesto on 31 October in Kandy.
Hon @sajithpremadasa: @PodujanaParty presidential candidate @GotabayaR has no problem w/debates but it’s best to consider it after your manifesto is released so there’s substance to debate. Until then, if you insist on a debate now, I’m ready. #SriLanka #PresPollSL pic.twitter.com/pzDJYrEYaX
