UNP: Govt. Can’t Sell The War Now

Feb 2, 2011 9:23:44 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP today (2) said the government could not longer sell the war victory to win elections.

UNP Deputy Leader Karu Jayasuriya told a press conference that the government won the Presidential and general elections by talking of the war victory and that it could no longer do so.

He said it is the UNP that could now find solutions to the issues faced by the country and take the country towards an era of development.

Speaking of a statement made by governing UPFA general secretary, Minister Susil Premajayantha that the party would file legal actions against the rejections of 30 of its nomination lists at the local government elections and that the elections could therefore be postponed, Jayasuriya said the UNP is not agreeable to the postponement of the local government elections.
