Rumors have been out the Sri Lanka’s former president Mahnida Rajapaksha’s brother has been appointed as a candidate to run the Sri Lanka presidential election 2020.
This news was circulated inside social media which said Mahnida Rajapaksha officially appointed Gotabhayaas the official candidate.
But Gotabhaya Rajapaksha dined the such claims making an announcement to social media.
“I wish to inform that a fake media release circulating in social media, purported to be from the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, claiming to have appointed me as the Presidential Candidate for 2020, is totally inaccurate and is an attempt by certain parties to mislead and confuse the people and political stakeholders,”
the former Defence Secretary said in a Facebook message.
