The political scene yesterday saw cricket star turned UPFA politician Arjuna Ranatunga teaming up with Opposition Presidential candidate Gen. Sarath Fonseka. The latest political cross over took place hours after nomination papers were filed by the respective presidential candidates. Addressing a well-attended news conference at the political office of Gen. Fonseka, Parliamentarian Ranatunga outlined the reasons for his defection from the government, and said the country was in need of a change for the better now. He said Gen. Fonseka was a disciplined war hero who committed himself for the country and achieved a tremendous victory.

United National Freedom Alliance parliamentarian, Minister Arjuna Ranatunga said, in order to stop the existing corruption within our country, he decided to support General Sarath Fonseka in the upcoming Presidential elections

Mr. Ranatunge further commented that supporting General Fonseka was an obligation he had towards the country, and had he not decided to take this step he would have been a traitor to the Sri Lanka Freedom Party.
