Leader of the United National Party (UNP) Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday said his party had fielded a large number of new faces as candidates for this year’s general election as it had listened to the people’s wishes. 

Addressing a meeting of the Party District Managers, Mr. Wickremesinghe said that the party has listened to the people of the country and was adapting to their needs.   


“This election will see the UNP as the party with the largest number of new candidates. The public has said they want to throw all 225 Members of Parliament into the Diyawanna Oya. Therefore, UNP has presented the voters with new faces to choose from,” Mr Wickremesinghe said.   

 

Public has already lost faith in President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, and so they have lost hope in the entire system


Wickremesinghe went on to say that the candidates put forth by the UNP was a healthy mix of professionals, youth and experienced members, all of whom were dedicated to working towards the betterment of the country. Referring to the 2019 Presidential Election, he said that both Sajith Premadasa and the JVP candidate had suffered heavy defeats at the hands of an individual who was not part of the political system.   


“Public has already lost faith in President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, and so they have lost hope in the entire system,” he said while explaining that the UNP, the longest-serving political party in the country has experienced both victory and defeat, and they understand the necessity to adapt to the needs of the people.   


The UNP leader explained that currently, the country is facing many problems, of which the only political party capable of addressing them was the UNP. He further added that while understanding the issues faced by the public, the party will put forth solutions to their problems shortly.
