At the upcoming general elections, opposition leader Sajith Premadasa will lead a new alliance comprising the UNP and several newly-established parties as UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has indicated that he would not lead any election in the future, UNP MP Thushara Indunil Amarasena told a press conference held today.

“In both personal and official discussions with various individuals in the party, Mr. Wickremesinghe had indicated that he was not willing to lead an election in the future. We believe he will take the right decision. However, no one is willing to push Mr. Wickremesinghe aside but only strive to bring about unity within the party and to form a new alliance to contest the elections. The alliance will comprise newly-established parties and civil society organisations that will have a say in it,” he said. (Yohan Perera)
