Defense Minister post is the only post decided so far: Sajith

Democratic National Front (DNF) presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa said the only post he had decided so far was the Defense Minster post, which he has promised to Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka.

Premadasa who was speaking at a rally in Dambulla today said he had chosen Fonseka purely based on his capabilities and accomplishments.

He further revealed that as President, he will check if officials were corrupt or had brought disrepute to the country when signing their respective appointment letters.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe at a special press conference today said he will continue to be the Prime Minister, if the DNF candidate was voted into power.
