Addressing the rally Rathna Thero of JHU stated that if the government is not implementing 19th amendment, neglecting the public opinion, they will have to extend support to opposition's common candidate.

Once the presidential election is announced the ruling party MPs will cross over to the opposition, Thero added.

It was significant that the UNP MP Mangala Samaraweera, who the media reports claimed to be making preparations to join the government and Sajith Premadasa, who is said to oppose the notion of fielding a common candidate, also participated in the rally.
