Parliamentarian Dr. Harsha De Silva says, the leadership of the United National Party and the post of Opposition Leader needs to be given to Former Minister Sajith Premadasa.
Speaking at a media briefing held in Colombo, he said, this is a request of the people, as it has become an utmost necessity to rid the UNP of corrupt politicians.
A special discussion on the Opposition Leader’s post and the post of Party Leader of the UNP is reportedly scheduled take place on Thursday.
However, if a decision on the Opposition Leader’s post is not taken within the next two days, party members supporting Former Minister Sajith Premadasa say, they will have to focus on alternatives.
A group of Parliamentarians supporting Former Minister Sajith Premadasa held a discussion in this regard, last night.
Parliamentarian Sujeewa Senasinghe said, now, an agreement has been reached within the party, on the post of the Opposition Leader.
