Parliamentarian Ven. Uduwe Dhammaloka Thera yesterday expressed his support to the newly elected UPFA President Mahinda Rajapakse.
Issuing a statement to the media, Ven. Dhammaloka blessed the new President and stated that the contribution made by Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) to make Mahinda Rajapakse the President was commendable.
?I expressed my gratitude to all the officials who were responsible for holding a free and fair election and specially to the general public who maintained peace during and after the election,? Ven. Thera said.
He further said that this election proved that the opposition leader, Ranil Wickremesinghe too was a person who would not divide the country.
The best example was that the LTTE prevented the voting rights of the public in the North.
