Wickremesinghe, Premadasa hold discussion to give new life to UNP

[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.
