The UNP says that UNP MP Kabir Hashim would announce to the media this week the party’s stance on the reforms programme following discussions with the pro-reforms group and the party leadership.
The 10 day deadline given by several UNP MPs who threatened to sit independently in parliament if the party leadership failed to implement the party reforms ended yesterday (28).
UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake told the media that Hashim who negotiated the 10-day deadline at the last Working Committee meeting has had successful discussions with the persons concerned and that a few more days will be needed to finalize some decision on the party reforms.
Hashim is the intermediary between the pro-reforms groups and the party leadership.
The pro-reforms group of the party is to meet today to decide on the party reforms and the group’s future course of action.
