Sajith Premadasa said that usually the President of Sri Lanka is elected by more than 20 million people here, but this is not happening right now. Right now 225 MPs will elect the President.
Will Sajith Premadasa be the next President?

In such a situation, the election is difficult, but I will fight. Ranil Wickremesinghe has also announced to contest the elections. It is his opinion, but it is known to all that Ranil Wickremesinghe is close to Gotabaya Rajapaksa and how much opposition is happening against him.

Sri Lanka is going through a very bad situation. There are financial problems, immersed in debt. Necessity and basic things are not being found in the country. In such a situation, I will appeal to the international community to help Sri Lanka.
