United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) MP Kumara Welgama says a presidential election must be held first.

The presidential candidate will come forward on the right time and it will be a new face, he added.

Responding to media reports that a group of Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members would join the United National Front (UNF) government with Chandrika Bandaranayake Kumaratunga, he said: “That can happen. I too saw it. Certain SLFP members switched parties, repeatedly. They might switch parties again.”
