UNP Leaders To Meet On Tuesday
UNP leaders are to meet on Tuesday (14) to discuss the party’s strategy for the Local Government elections next year and the future of the party.
UNP Gampaha District Parliamentarian Joseph Michael Perera has been quoted in the media saying that Deputy Leader Karu Jayasuriya, General Secretary Tissa Attanayake, himself and several other senior members are scheduled to meet Opposition and UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe at party headquarters Sirikotha to discuss the Local Government polls scheduled to be held under the first-past-the-post system.
Meanwhile, several UNP MPs have given an ultimatum to the UNP leadership to resolve the party crisis this week or else they would be forced to sit as independent MPs in parliament next week.
UNP parliamentarian Dayasiri Jayasekera, who is leading the campaign calling for a quick resolution of the party crisis, has said they expect a meeting with Wickremesinghe this week to seek a solution to the crisis.
