United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe today urged the people not to divide themselves as winners and losers and work together as one family for the betterment of Sri Lanka and to introduce a new political culture to the country.

In his special statement Mr. Wickremesinghe said the people had given a mandate for good governance and consensus-based politics.

He also commended all those who helped ensure the holding of a free and fair election. (YP)
Special Announcement Issued by the Leader of the United National Front  Ranil Wickremesinghe

The majority of the people of this country have approved the continuance of good governance and consensual politics endorsed by the people through the silent revolution of 8th of January.

I offer my grateful thanks to all parties and individuals who worked untiringly during the election period to ensure victory for the people. We have been able to create a peaceful atmosphere needed for a free and fair election.  

There should not be a division amongst people as winners and losers. We should get together as the sons and daughters of our motherland to the task of building a new political culture in this country. We have to unitedly work towards lifting the nation to a new height by facing challenges of the new era.

I invite all of you to join hands with us to face the challenges of our Mission.

Let us together build a civilized society, build a consensual government and create a new country with equal opportunities for everybody.

    Any party that comes to power in future must work as per the 20 year National Development Plan. This pan must be reviewed and revised every year.

    Mohamed Thahir Wednesday, 19 August 2015 09:47 AM

    Now all over .Its the peoples mandate given to develop the entire island. Now Sir you had got the most preferential votes and people had kept lot of trust and faith in you. The first strategy should be to bring in Wimal, Dinesh and Udaya to the National Government and assign new tasks and rsponsibilities to them.Otherwise for the next five years they will only promote racism and will sabotage all the good works carried out by you in the parliament.

    Nadeesha Tuesday, 18 August 2015 01:42 PM

    Sincerely hope you will not give into pressure from corrupt individuals.

    CitizenPerera Wednesday, 19 August 2015 02:31 PM

    Mr. Thahir, You know well that those trouble makers you named are bigots and racists and still insist rewarding them within a national government. These are the rascals who DESTROYED Mahinda!
