Presidential poll in January; can’t reveal date – Keheliya
The Presidential Election will be held within the month of January next year, confirmed Cabinet Spokesman and Minister of Mass Media and Information Keheliya Rambukwella.
The minister stated that although he knew the exact date of the polls, he could not confirm it at the moment. He, however, assured that the exact date of the election will be announced very soon.
Speaking during a ceremony to commence several development projects in the Kundasale Electorate in Kandy last evening, Rambukwella stated that every person in the country should put aside their differences and work for President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s victory at the election.
He said that it is important that Rajapaksa win the Presidential poll for a third term in order to protect the hard-fought peace, develop the country as well as to bring honour to Sri Lanka.
Rambukwella further said that the Budget proposal for the year 2015 will be presented to the Parliament on October 24.
