Brother referred by Mahinda is Chamal - Vasu Featured

The presidential candidate Mahinda Rajapaksa has in mind is Chamal Rajapaksa, according to Vasudeva Nanayakkara.

That is the only interpretation that could be reached from the former president’s remarks to The Hindu newspaper, Nanayakkara has told ‘Anidda’.

He noted that the former speaker is the only Rajapaksa brother with qualifications and who is presently involved in politics.

The ex-leader has only said that his brother could contest the next presidential election, adding that his party should take the decision.

Both Basil and Gotabhaya cannot be considered, without their relinquishing the US citizenship, Nanayakkara added.
