Kanishka Senanayake, son of Colombo Mayor Rosy Senanayake, would be contesting the upcoming General Election from the Samagi Jana Balawegaya for Colombo District. Mr. Kanishka Senanayake has signed up for a young, educated, intelligent, efficient and clean service of politics out of traditional means most sought by the country under the leadership of Mr. Sajith Premadasa, leader of Samagi Jana Balawegaya.
Proving that he is capable of advancing the role of the Senanayakes, who are not new to politics, and empowering the youth generations with knowledge and experience, young Kanishka Senanayake, a recognized figure among many parallels in Mrs. Rosy Senanayake's political journey, has joined politics reshaping its course. Born in 1983, Mr. Kanishka Senanayake studied in Ananda College, Colombo, St. Thomas College Colombo and Colombo International School and completed his higher education at the York University of the United Kingdom. He later graduated in Tampa Accounting at a University in the United States. Returned with completion of higher studies, Mr. Senanayake held many senior positions in private and government institutions. He has so far shown his success through his work naturally following in her mother's footsteps. The remarks made by Senanayake Jr. cannot be precluded in the political journey of Mrs. Rosy Senanayake as the first Mayor of Colombo Municipal Council of a proud history of 200 years. In her own words, Kanishka is a giant shadow in her political career. In the image of the wonder woman in politics, Mr. Kanishka Senanayake has also joined the mission to serve social justice reminiscing of the contribution of a great generation he was born to. Familiar with the power of youth, Mr. Kanishka would be a young leader dreaming to socialize innovations and empower youth communities thereby leaving a golden mark in the 2020 Arena!
