 Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says he will support the Joint Opposition at the upcoming Local Government elections and not the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

Responding to questions from journalists in Puttalam today (01), the UPFA Parliamentarian said that he is prepared to successfully face the Local Government polls, which he says will be a decisive election.

Rajapaksa further said that when looking at certain incidents presently taking place in the North, it is clear that problems pertaining to national security have cropped up.

The Kurunegla District MP said that he had pointed this out a long time ago.

He said that there is no surprise such issues our surfacing at a time when security forces personnel have been restricted to within their camps which also have been limited and when intelligence officers are being imprisoned.
