Several senior members from the UNP have decided to meet with UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and leadership hopeful, UNP Hambantota District MP Sajith Premadasa.
UNP MPs John Amaratunga, Joseph Michael Perera and Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena are to first meet with Wickremesinghe and later on with Premadasa to discuss the necessity to safeguard the party unity.
Dr. Jayawardena has told the media that everyone needed to understand the true situation and the call by the party membership. However, the party unity should not be compromised at any cost.
The three UNP seniors are scheduled to meet with Wickremesinghe.
The seniors are to meet with Premadasa in the next few days.
