COLOMBO (News 1st) - Opposition leader Sajith Premadasa has expressed confidence about his participation at the next presidential election. 

The Opposition Leader was responding to claims about his participation at the election, against the backdrop of the participation of Ranil Wickremesinghe.

"Some factions of the government are spreading news that if Ranil Wickremesinghe is contesting the presidential election, Sajith will not contest. The same people who are saying this conspired with Gotabaya Rajapaksa during the last presidential election to prevent me from winning. All I have to say is that I will definitely contest in the next presidential election," he said.

The Opposition Leader expressed these views during an event to renovate the right canal of the Kirindi Oya movement which was carried out by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya.

The canal was renovated after 40 years.
