Minister: UNP Convention A Farce

Dec 17, 2010 7:39:55 AM - thesundayleader.lk

UNP defector and government minister says that the UNP convention and the amendments ratified to the party constitution is a farce.

Deputy Plantation Industries Minister Earl Gunasekera has told a press conference in Kandy that there will not be any changes in the UNP leadership until Ranil Wickremesinghe is at the helm of the party.

A former UNPer who joined the government a few months back, Gunasekera has said that the UNP is suffering a miserable fate due to the actions of the party leadership and that it was such actions that led to his defection from the party along with several other MPs.

According to Gunasekera, the crisis within the UNP has not been solved. He has said that if there were no crisis, Wickremesinghe and MP Sajith Premadasa would not have held separate press conferences after the party convention.
