UNP to elect leader by secret ballot if contest prevails

[TamilNet, Saturday, 22 May 2010, 03:50 GMT]
The main opposition United National Party (UNP) Friday decided to elect its leader by secret ballot in an event where more than one name is proposed. It states that the same should apply for the posts of Deputy Leader, Assistant Leader, National Organizer and Chairman, according to the six -member Reforms Committee report handed over to the Working Committee of the UNP and approved by the latter. UNP Chief Organizer Joseph Michael Perera was the head of the Reforms Committee.

Further discussion and scrutiny on the recommendation would take place after the Vesak weekend, and the reforms committee report will be presented to the party membership at the UNP's annual convention in July, this year.

The Working Committee and the Parliamentary Group of the UNP have now given the go-ahead for the recommendations, UNP Media Spokesman MP Gayantha Karunatilake said.
