Rajapaksa indicated that this decision would be made in due course by the party. “That’s something we need to decide later. The party will make that decision,” he remarked.

Rajapaksa assured that there are plenty of candidates to run for president. “There are many candidates. The challenge is for us to make a decision,” he explained.
