Former UNP MPs To Support Sajith

Jan 4, 2011 9:35:57 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Several former UNP parliamentarians have pledged their support to UNP Hambantota District parliamentarian Sajith Premadasa to take over the party leadership and called on the UNP Leader to step down.

The group of parliamentarians have decided to hand over a letter to Opposition and UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe requesting him to step down from the party leadership in order to make way for Premadasa to take over the post.

Former UNP MP M.D. Premaratne told a press conference that the group planned to meet with Wickremesinghe today (4) to hand over the letter.

The members who are expected to hand over the letter to Wickremesinghe are for UNP MPs Gemunu Abeysundara, M.D. Premaratne, Vincent Dias, Reginald Perera, Anura Bastian and D.M. Bandaranayake.
