The Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne questioned whether power can be handed over to the UNP which lacks leadership. He said that this should be considered wisely.
He said there are internecine clashes between two leaders in the UNP. There are only a few members in the UNP. He queried whether those who do not have control over these few people can administer the entire population. The Prime Minister said the people in the villages who vote for the UNP are also ambiguous.
