Dec 22, 2010 3:53:04 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP today (22) said that there are several governing party legislators who are ready to join the UNP.

UNP Badulla District parliamentarian Harin Fernando told a press conference that nearly 20 disgruntled governing party legislators including senior ministers were in discussion with the UNP to join it.

Fernando said that these members were ready to join the party once the leadership is strengthened.

He also alleged of the Sri Lankan cricket team being politicized by the inclusion of UPFA MP Sanath Jayasuriyas in the squad.

Also addressing the press conference, UNP Gampaha District parliamentarian Ruwan Wijewardena said that the UNP could move forward with Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe’s experience and Sajith Premadasa’s popularity at village level.
