The Democratic Left Front will back MP Dullas Alahapperuma in the upcoming Parliamentary vote to elect a President.
Party Leader Vasudeva Nanayakkara said the party has agreed to vote in favour of Alahapperuma.
He said by electing Alahapperuma as Executive President, it will be possible to form an all-party Government free of traditional ties.
He also noted that Alahapperuma has the capacity to quickly provide relief to people in distress as a result of neoliberal economic practices, as well as to establish the people’s national freedom, democracy, national independence, and security.
Furthermore, Nanayakkara said Alahapperuma is the best candidate who has the strength and courage to take the initiative to build a permanent national economic structure by providing space for a broad dialogic representation with the country’s youth fighters engaged in a struggle against the country’s informal rule.
