The Secretary General of UNP, minister Akila Viraj says that the Working Committee of the UNP and the parliamentarians group of the party would meet together next week to find the Presidential Candidate of the party without having any splits in side the party.
After having meeting with the Prime Minister, Akila Viraj expressed that the vacancies of the working committee might not to be filled at this moment. However, the ardent supporters of some parliamentarians for Sajith Premadasa, have earlier revealed about pending new appointments for the working committee.
Meanwhile, the “Jathika Hela Urumaya” under the General Secretary of Patali Champika Ranawaka issued a statement, saying that the Presidential candidate of “Eksath Jathika Preamuna” should be selected by the parliament group of “Eksath Jathika Peramuna” not by the working committee of UNP. They further explain that this way is the most democratic way to select the Presidential candidate but the “Jathika Hela Urumaya” remains openly skeptical about how far the Working Committee of UNP has set up democratically up by itself to do this way.
