UNP Hambantota District parliamentarian and leadership hopeful Sajith Premadasa decided to take part in election rallies that will be held island wide for the local government elections.
UNP parliamentarian and pro-reforms member Ranjith Madduma Bandara has told the media that Premadasa would participate in at least one rally in every electorate.
UNP sources say that many UNP candidates at the local government elections have requested Premadasa to participate in meetings organized in every electorate.
Madduma Bandara has said that Premadasa and the pro-reforms group would work to bring victory to the UNP at the local government elections.
After the conclusion of the local government elections on March 17, the pro-reforms group has decided to once again work to bring a change to the party leadership before April 12.
The new party Constitution states that office bearers to key posts in the party should be appointed within 120 days of the party convention. The UNP convention was held on December 12, 2010.
