While expressing his gratitude for the support given to his party, the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), to record its landslide victory at the Local Government elections held on Saturday, MP and former president Mahinda Rajapaksa requested party supporters to celebrate the victory “peacefully and with restraint”.

In an initial statement, Rajapaksa said: “I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to the voting public of Sri Lanka who have reposed their trust in us and made this victory possible. 

The Opposition has been able to achieve this victory amidst unprecedented persecution and harassment.”

“Despite the personal harassment they may have had to face over the past three years, I earnestly request all those who contested under the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna to celebrate this hard won victory peacefully and with restraint and in a manner that will not inconvenience the defeated side. Members of the SLPP should be mindful that such is the way we should show our appreciation to the voting public of Sri Lanka. Victory to all Sri Lankans! May the blessings of the Triple Gem be upon you,” Rajapaksa added.
