December 05, 2019

Crucial decisions regarding the appointment of the new Opposition Leader will be discussed at the UNP parliamentary group meeting today.

The meeting will take place at the party headquarters under the auspices of UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe. Wickremesinghe had previously indicated willingness to hand over reins if the party agreed he should.

The names of Sajith Premadasa and Karu Jayasuriya have been proposed to the opposition leader's post.

Several Premadasa loyalists have threatened to break away from the party if the former deputy leader is not given the opposition leader's post.
