Sri Lanka, Aug. 18 -- Sri Lanka's Marxist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today declared its leader Anura Kumara Dissanayaka as their presidential candidate during a rally held at the Galle Face Green.

Under the leadership of the JVP, 28 other political and civil organizations are set to contest at the upcoming presidential election.

This is, however, the first time that the JVP is nominating a presidential candidate in nearly 20 years.
