Dulles Alahapperuma MP Issues Statement on Behalf of SLPP Claiming That Gotabaya Rajapaksa Has Won the Presidential Election with 53% of Votes Though Final Results are yet to be Announced Officially.

The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) on Sunday claimed that presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa has won the presidential election by winning 53% of the total votes.

In a statement, MP Dullas Alahapperuma said although the final official results were yet to be released they had sufficient information that Gotabaya Rajapaksa had won the polls.

Dullas urged all the supporters to celebrate the victory peacefully just as Gotabaya’s campaign had been peaceful and environmentally friendly.

Sri Lanka’s election commission is likely to announce the winner by 6pm local time and the new president is likely to be sworn in this week.
