Former Deputy Leader of the United National Party Karu Jaysuriya would be appointed to the Working Committee of the party on October 7, UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said today.

Addressing a media briefing Attanayake said the party would decide on the next course of action of the party during Working Committee meeting to be held on the day.

“There is no truth in the rumour about a change in the leadership. Ranil Wickremesinghe is the leader of the party and that will continue, but of course the party is open for suggestions. You can’t blame the leader of the party for all the failures,” he said.

Jayasuriya who was a former Deputy Leader of UNP contested for the party leadership last year and lost after which his membership in the Working Committee was withdrawn.(YP & LP)

    If RW does not know to resign and wants cling on to power there will be an alternative 2nd party. It's time for him to step down and be a hon member and somebody else should take the leadership.

    This is a tragedy of the country not only for UNPers. Democracy will prevail only when good opposition is available. More than 90% of UNPers do not like Ranil. But this fool working comity does not understand this truth.

    Yehiya Monday, 30 September 2013 01:41 PM

    Weakness is starting from working committee(WC). First create a fair constitution for WC. bring professional for WC Party leadership must elected through parliament members, PC members,& who got most preference vote local government. Ranil may professional but not a team player,You all have to thing people are suffering lot & good or bad general Fonseka is behind you.

    Temporary solutions will not help UNP

    Karikalan Tuesday, 01 October 2013 10:42 AM

    Ranil Must Go! He Must Go Now!! Not Tomorrow, not Next week or Month, but Now!!!

    Sim Monday, 30 September 2013 02:28 PM

    Is there Democracy in the UNP?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Tuesday, 01 October 2013 10:57 AM

    Ranil should be thrown out, then UNP will prosper again. Do that first.

    Ryan Monday, 30 September 2013 09:48 AM

    and UNP is rejected party

    surain lal Monday, 30 September 2013 09:59 AM

    no brain thats all i can tell you

    deepal Monday, 30 September 2013 10:24 AM

    Anyway Ranil will buy time until 2014 January-after the pc polls of south ,uva and western THE REAL DOWN FALL WILL COME.

    Dilini Monday, 30 September 2013 07:03 AM

    No way you will come out this mess unless you completely democratize the party. Yo can learn a good lesson by Western and Southern provinces. sweet dreams sir.

    TooToo Monday, 30 September 2013 07:03 AM

    A real leader has to take the responsibility the result of the elections. The masses has rejected Ranil as the leader. UNP under Ranil will gradually disappear from Sri Lanka political radar soon.

    Sam Samarasinghe Monday, 30 September 2013 07:13 AM

    Re-Appoint Karu to the Post of Deputy Leader.. Get rid of all who pushed the party into a mess, do not hesitate to take necessary disciplinary action against anybody just because his/her/ parents were big shots in the past..Cancer has to be removed completely before the patient die.

    linar Monday, 30 September 2013 07:22 AM

    Tissa, are you deaf & blind? Even a 5 year old knows Ranil destroyed the UNP with the help of you and the working committee. You never deserved the general secretary post. Stop scratching the back of each other and GET OUT or we will throw you out soon

    ananda Monday, 30 September 2013 07:23 AM

    It seem that still party not understand what need to be done. 24% vote base will drip down to 10% in next election. UNP will become 3rd force. Government is winning not that they are good since no proper opposition. UNP must understand what people expecting from party today. If not............................?

    Suq Madique Monday, 30 September 2013 10:57 AM

    UNP needs to get rid of the main RW, and then the fossils in the WC whose thoughts and ideas are outdated.

    madiya Monday, 30 September 2013 07:29 AM

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. ....PLEASE STOP TALKING GARBAGE..GET OUT...YOU ARE THE CULPRIT AND JOHNA..TALK LIKE A PARROT AND KEEPING THE BIGGEST LOOSER EVER!!!!

    Renu Monday, 30 September 2013 07:30 AM

    No we do not want him as the leader any more. We are UNPers for over 60 years
