Parliamentarian Harin Fernando says that Mr. Mahinda Rajapakshe is the President’s third option.
He adds that he feels sorry about Mr. Mahinda Rajapakshe for being the last option.
He points out that judging by how Mr. Karu Jayasuriya and Mr. Sajith Premadasa refused to accept the President’s request, the nature of the United National Party would be obvious. He says that accordingly, they can be proud of the fact that the descendants of the generation of D.S. Senanayake, Dudely Senanayake still exist within the party, adding that the President himself has admitted it.
He emphasizes that the United National Party does not wish to survive upon a single individual towards greediness for power.
Mr. Harin Fernando made these comments at the press conference held in the Temple Trees yesterday (06).
