Speaker Karu Jayasuriya says that many factions are requesting him to come forward as the Presidential Candidate.

In a statement issued he has said that the Maha Sangha, heads of civil organizations, intellectuals from various fields as well as representatives from youth organizations are among them.

However, the Speaker has emphasized that he can consider contesting the Presidential Election only by joining political forces whose objective is to abolish the Executive Presidency.

At the same time, if he is to represent other factions led by the United National Front it should be in compliance with the Party Constitution, he has said.

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has also said that he should have the blessing of all factions if he is to do it.
