Thewarapperuma changes his mind

Former MP Palitha Thewarapperuma decided to go ahead with his candidacy at the upcoming General election.

Thewarapperuma had recently announced his decision to resign from his candidacy and had handed over a letter on this regard to the Election Commission.

However, the Chairman of the EC - Mahinda Deshapriya has responded saying that according to prevailing laws, it cannot be done.

Therefore, Thewarapperuma had said that since he cannot resign from his candidacy, he will contest the election with doubled vigor and emerge victorious.
