United National Party (UNP) MP Hesha Withanage said yesterday his party would pick one of its three leaders - Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa or Speaker Karu Jayasuriya as its presidential candidate.

He told a news conference that these three leaders would be president, prime minister and speaker under a future UNP government and confirmed that the UNP had no intention of supporting any outsider as the common candidate at the upcoming election.

Responding to a question asked by a journalist on the statement made by President Maithripala Sirisena that he would support the UNP if a new face was nominated by the party as the presidential candidate, the MP said President Sirisena should support the UNP if he any inkling of gratitude.

However, he said the President did not have any right to select the UNP presidential candidate. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    Ranil is the best. We have to assit him to win for the first time in thirty attempts.

    None of the present parliamentarians will be elected in the next election. Enough is enough, you people should retire since you all have worked so hard and deserve to be relieved.

    That's foolish to even consider or think of Ranil being the candidate for the presidential polls. Sajith is the ideal person who will do some work for the society which has been proved by actions in the past..
