Former President Maithripala Sirisena said the new President had already demonstrated his need to embark on a positive journey.

Addressing a public gathering in Polonnaruwa, the former President said everyone's responsibility is to support the new President and his plans to develop the country.

"Party politics should be set aside and the country's interests should be given the top-most priority," Sirisena said.
