UNP Stalwart Says Presidential Candidate Will Be Decided With The Concurrence Of Prime Minister Wickremesinghe And Sajith Premadasa

The Presidential candidate of the United National Party would be selected with the concurrence of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Minister Sajith Premadasa, a senior UNP Parliamentarian said.

"It was decided at the party's parliamentary group yesterday," he said.

Meanwhile, issuing a special statement, Prime Minister Wickremesinghe told the media yesterday that the Democratic National Alliance would be formed before the end of August.

The party is currently debating the constitution of the proposed alliance and the UNP's stake in the coalition's main decision-making body. However, several parties representing the alliance have requested the UNP to make a final decision on the Presidential candidate before signing an MOU.
