UNP, JVP candidates agree to participate in Presidential debate

UNP Presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa and JVP Presidential candidate Anura Kumara Dissanayake have both agreed to participate in an event organised by ‘the March 12 Movement’ led by PAFFREL and AFRIEL.

However SLPP Presidential candidate Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is yet to confirm his attendance at the ‘Presidential Election 2019—Public Platform’ scheduled on 5 October  at the Sugathadasa Stadium.

The event will host the top 3/4 presidential candidates on a single platform to answer five pre-selected questions on a wide range of issues, from national security to the economy and women’s rights and representation.
