United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has decided to handover the party leadership to any party member who could prove he or she was eligible to lead the party, UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said.

“Members should set examples and prove that they are eligible for party leadership. Mr. Wickremesinghe is willing to step down if there is such a person,” Attanayake told a news conference today.

Mr. Wickremesinghe made this decision at the Working Committee meeting held on Monday. At the meeting he highlighted the importance of uniting the party. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    He is trying to beat late KIm Il Sung! He is never going to give up. MR must be rolling in a laughter of happiness.

    Shameless Mann, you should vacate before others remove your clothes and keep you naked.

    Absolutely correct as Ranil proved his eligibility in 28 elections without any shadow of doubt.

    Whom should one prove to. To you and Ranil? Have you not stopped your your nonsensical talk yet.You along with your leader are a curse on UNP.

    So they think there is no other person capable of being a leader for the party?

    Amila. G Tuesday, 08 October 2013 11:20 AM

    You mean a opposition leader.

    Anil Tuesday, 08 October 2013 09:05 AM

    Eligibility is not just being the son of a former President.

    unchikun Tuesday, 08 October 2013 09:06 AM

    You have failed missably as a leader and proved it by the state ofthe party today. Anyone can do better.

    OMG Tuesday, 08 October 2013 09:08 AM

    Even a threewheel driver is more suitable to be the leader of UNP than Ranil.

    yipeeeee!

    You have proven over and over again that you are not eligible to lead your party. So it's now high time you step down and let someone else lead.

    Suq Madique Tuesday, 08 October 2013 09:19 AM

    Because of him so many promising young politicians left the party and now he wants to hand over to a 'suitable' member? Who is going to choose the replacement? Ranil??

    Ara Tuesday, 08 October 2013 09:21 AM

    joke of the day!

    Fayad Tuesday, 08 October 2013 09:24 AM

    Are you a democratic leader with in your own party ???

    SAM_APARROW Tuesday, 08 October 2013 09:25 AM

    First you step down, party will decide who the new leader is. As if he cares about the UNP.

    ram Tuesday, 08 October 2013 02:27 PM

    John Amaratunge is the best for UNP
