New Democratic Front (NDF) presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa yesterday reiterated that he would appoint a new prime minister who could command a majority in Parliament if he was elected to office.

The presidential aspirant also said there would be no room in his Cabinet for those accused of corruption.

“I will replace the current corrupt administration of this country, I will bring about a new youthful, clean and skilful political culture and I will take firm and direct steps in this direction,” Premadasa said in a special statement.

He added that he would also take steps to hold a Parliamentary Election and set up a stable Government once elected.
