New Proposal To UNP Leadership Council

By Rasika Jayakody

A group of UNP parliamentarians are to present a fresh proposal to the UNP Leadership Council urging the Council to prohibit its members from holding other key positions in the party.

A UNP parliamentarian told The Sunday Leader that this move will give more opportunities for second-tier leaders of the parties, enabling them to hold key responsibilities within the party.

“The proposal will be presented to the Leadership Council in the third week of December and we sincerely hope there will be a favourable response from the council members,” he said.

“Since the Leadership Council is now the supreme decision making body of the party, its members should not hold any other key responsibilities of the party,” the parliamentarian added.

Karu Jayasuriya, Ravi Karunanayake, Lakshman Kiriella, Ruwan Wijewardene, Gamini Jayawickrema Perera, Mangala Samaraweera, Tissa Attanayake and Kabir Hashim are current members of the UNP Leadership Council. Meanwhile, The Sunday Leader also learned that a group of young UNP parliamentarians are planning to hold discussions with Sajith Premadasa as well as with the Leadership Council to get Premadasa re-appointed as a member of the 9 member council.

Although Premadasa initially stepped down from the Leadership Council, the group of MPs are of the view that he should not distance himself from the Leadership Council and the topmost body of the party, given his ability to inspire the grassroots level.

    Karu you are going to make another team to join the government. This is what you did last time. This new members are useless. No body will vote for you’ll.

    Ranil is not in the Leadership Council! Then how is he referred to as the UNP leader whenever he addresses a Party meeting ?
    All problems in the Party will automatically ease off if Ranil steps aside even temporarily.He should do this in the interest of the Party and this is the wish of the average. UNP supporters.

    SAJITH has been calling for uniting to fight against the UN resolution! It is now feared that he is drifting towards the GOVT.There is a little suspicion. that he has been. bought over by MR. Before any further moves in the Party we have to watch him.

    Why should Sajit try to make use of others as cat’s paw. He should confess and accept the position. Boasting and over – estimation of himself will only do major harms to himself. When the party is now heading the right direction, an ambitious young man of his calibre should not try split the party being deceived by rivals.and his enemies.
