Wickramasinghe to remain as leader of UNP

[TamilNet, Saturday, 10 April 2010, 16:21 GMT]
The main opposition United National Party (UNP) said Saturday that it suffered setback in the general election as voters had lost confidence on the electoral and present political system and not due to lack of faith in its leadership. Ranil Wickrmasinghe said he would continue to remain as the leader of the party, responding to critics who have called for restructuring of the party following the defeat in the general elections held Thursday.

Only 56 percent voters cast their votes in the April 8 general compared to earlier general election.

75 percent of voters cast their votes island-wide in the general election held in 2004.
