He stated that this election will see the UNP as the party with the largest number of new candidates.

Wickremesinghe went on to say that the candidates put forth by the UNP was a healthy mix of professionals, youth and experienced members, all of whom were dedicated to working towards the betterment of the country.

Referring to the 2019 Presidential election, he said that both Sajith Premadasa and the JVP candidate had suffered heavy defeats at the hands of an individual who was not part of the political system.

“The public has already lost faith in President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, and so they have lost hope in the entire system.”
