FUTA doesn’t support any candidate

Dr. Nirmal Ranjith Devasiri said yesterday that he had not represented the Federation of University Teachers’ Association (FUTA) when he defended New Democratic Front’s candidate Maithripala Sirisena on Sunday at a media briefing.

He was referring to our lead news report yesterday headlined ‘Compromising national security: FUTA defends MS’.

"I was present there as a member of the University Teachers for Social Justice," he added.

Dr. Devasiri is an executive committee member of the FUTA and former President of the Association.

Dr. Devasiri stressed that FUTA had no mandate to endorse any candidate at an election.
