    Only Ranil can unite this nation, only Ranil can stop the isolation of our motherland by the international community, only Ranil can put the economy back on track.

    Sajith must fully support Ranil to reinvigorate the party like his Dad did under JR.

    We cannot wait for the UNP govt to establish peace, prosperity, rule of law and clean governance in the country we all adore. God bless our nation.

    Good decision taken at the correct time. Let all of you get down to working.

    The strategy of making everybody a leader does not work because there can only be one true authoritiative leader. UNP is back again where it started. Why is it so impossible to change ranil?

    Life time opp. leader.

    Shehan Jayawardene Wednesday, 23 March 2011 02:45 PM

    We need Ranil to retain the votes of the educated in Sri Lanka and we need Sajith to gain the votes of the village people. Fair deal.

    After all that fuss he made??

    Good move on his part to accept as pride doesn't help anyone. However, teamwork does.

    At least Now !!!!!

    Steve Wednesday, 23 March 2011 03:55 PM

    What difference is it going to make when Rani retains as the party leader. Good luck !

    Banta Wednesday, 23 March 2011 03:56 PM

    Good decision!! Now the other party members better accept this behave themselves.. Becuase, it is not really Ranil who is taking the party down the drain it is the once who claim to be real UNP's and speak against the leader on press conferences.. It's time to unite after all it's UNITED NATIONAL PARTY

    Padma Wednesday, 23 March 2011 03:57 PM

    Sajith, most UNPers are disappointed about this move. You are surely going to lose their confidence on you due to this mistake.

    Banta Wednesday, 23 March 2011 04:06 PM

    Hope for the best
