Sajith Premadasa vows to take UNP on victory path

[TamilNet, Monday, 13 December 2010, 20:30 GMT]
The son of the late president of Sri Lanka Ranasinghe Premadasa, addressing the UNP's convention held Sunday at the party headquarters Sri Kotha, has vowed that the UNP would "capture" the power from Rajapaksa family with the support of the masses. Sajith Premadasa is an elected parliamentarian from Hambantota district, the native place of SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa. Meanwhile UNP leader Ranil Wickremasinghe said the party would give way to a new young set of leaders.

Mr. Premadasa's statement came after the convention approved a new constitution to the party, allowing the UNP Working Committee to elect a leader by conscience or by a majority vote.

Sajith Premadasa currently holds the post of assistant secretary of the party.

Ranil Wickremasinghe, addressing the party members said, the senior members and youth leaders of the party should team up to defeat the current regime, before Mahinda Rajapaksa comes to power for the third time.
