UNF Party Leaders Seek To Form New Alliance Under Sajith Premadasa's Leadership Before Next Parliamentary Election

Several UNF party leaders are now pursuing plans to form a new alliance for the upcoming Parliamentary election, under the leadership of Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa.

This will allow former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to function as the leader of the UNP while allowing Premadasa to lead the party's election campaign.

"We don't care who the leader of the UNP is, but Sajith Premadasa should lead the alliance which will be formed before the next Parliamentary election," MP Mano Ganesan told the media.

Ganesan said no one else is suitable to lead the party's election campaign. He also added that had "no opinion" on who the UNP's leader should be.

However, discussions are also underway to appoint Premadasa as the Leader of the UNP before the next Parliamentary election.
