COLOMBO (News 1st); A social media post by former Sri Lankan ambassador to Russia, Udayanga Weeratunga, has sparked speculation about the upcoming election.

It claims that Podujana Peramuna's "mastermind," Basil Rajapaksa, will soon return to the island to lead the general election campaign. 

The post further suggests that the elections will be held after Sinhala Tamil New Year and that Basil is working tirelessly to ensure his party's victory, and not to reinstate Ranil.
