Death sentence, won't affect Premalal's candidacy - Vasu

Being given a death sentence does not affect the candidacy of Premalal Jayasekara, says Vasudewa Nanayakkara.

Nanayakkara, who is the Rathnapura district leader of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, says that no one should consider the court verdict as a final ruling.

On Friday, Rathnapura High Court imposed death sentences on former Parliamentarian Premalal Jayasekara and two others for gunning down a person to death during the 2015 Presidential election.
