Chandrika Kumaratunga extends support to Fonseka

[TamilNet, Sunday, 24 January 2010, 13:29 GMT]
Chandrika Kumaratunga, former executive president of Sri Lanka is reported to have extended her support to General (retd) Sarath Fonseka Sunday in the forthcoming presidential poll when the latter met her at her ancestral home in Attanagalla, according to initial reports reaching media sources in Colombo. No further details regarding the meeting between Chandrika Kumaratunga and Fonseka surfaced. General Fonseka travelled to Horogolla Sunday morning to seek her support.

General Fonseka is the common opposition candidate in the presidential election against the incumbent President Mahinda Rajapakse.

Meanwhile, a group of journalists which went to cover the meeting between General Fonseka and Chandrika Kumaratunga in Horogolla was not allowed by the police. The bus in which they were travelling was detained by the police, media sources said.

Chandrika Kumaratunga was the fourth executive president of Sri Lanka and she served two terms in that capacity.
