Mrs. Shanthini Devi Chandrasekaran is currently leading the UPF after the demise of her husband.

Mr. Radhakrishnan was elected to the parliament on the CWC ticket in April general election. Later due to difference of opinion with the CWC leadership as his request for a post of Deputy Minister in the UPFA government was turned down. Later he announced that he would sit in opposition in parliament as an independent member.

Radhakrishnan held discussion with UPF leader Mrs. Chandrasekaran and other leaders Thursday in Colombo.

He later issued a statement revealing his future course of action saying that he has decided to join the UPF.

Radhakrishnan would be taking up the post of the leader of the political wing of the UPF after 21st October.
