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of UNP contested for the party leadership last year and lost after which his membership in the Working Committee was withdrawn.(YP & LP)
