[TamilNet, Wednesday, 18 August 2010, 14:24 GMT]
Ranil Wickremesinghe, leader of the main opposition United National
Party (UNP) held one to one talks Tuesday evening with Sajith
Premadasa, UNP parliamentarian, to solve constitutional reforms of the
party and to give new life to the party in the coming elections. They were
later joined by another UNP parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake. The
talks are likely to continue Wednesday, party sources said.
Meanwhile Sajith Premadasa, son of late Sri Lanka’s President
R. Premadasa addressing a meeting organized by the Anuradhapura
District UNP local government representatives’ welfare society said that
the first step in instilling a winning mindset among United National
Party (UNP) supporters will begin at the upcoming local government
election campaign expected to be held early next year.
He said elections to local government institutions would be an
opportunity to begin the task of bringing the UNP to office and to
bring relief to the suffering masses.
A new vision is urgently needed
for the party to achieve this task. Thereafter bringing the party back
to office will not be a big problem, he said.
