29 November 2018 07:54 am - 19     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The United National Party (UNP) together with other parties which stand for democracy will soon register a new political alliance, its Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday.

Mr. Wickremesinghe said this when he met UNP members of local bodies at Temple Trees last evening. “We will soon register a new political alliance which we will form together with all parties who stands for democracy and rule of law in the country,” Mr. Wickremesinghe said, adding, “The objective of this alliance is to defeat and push those who stage coups out of politics.

He thanked all the parties which are working together with the UNP including the TPA, JHU, SLMC ACMC and MPs such as Rajitha Senaratne and Arjuna Ranatunga. He also thanked grassroot level members of the UNP. (Yohan Perera)

    As long as you are in politics, we CANNOT trust YOU. You are a worst selfish person.

    The alliance will be headed by a central bank robber and robbers will be in UNP. If you valued democracy you should have gone out of temple trees and also from the party leadership for what you have done

    Whatever alliance has to be led by anyone other than RW!

    What is the point in changing the horses while the Jockey remains the same?

    The Alliance is a good idea.The leadership of the UNP has to change and others well known as involved in the CB Bond Scam should be removed from the UNP as a first step.

    I have a name. Wada bari demo-crazy party?

    Gihan Thursday, 29 November 2018 09:19 AM

    Whilst Ranil's backers are holding the cheque book to the party. Whatever alliance is formed, it will be business as usual for the party - sad!

    Lion Thursday, 29 November 2018 09:52 AM

    Hope there will be a new leader

    ram Thursday, 29 November 2018 10:00 AM

    Its is very high time to RW to step down from leadership. RW can't win the heart of rural/village people, he attracts only colombo business and educated people.

    Get an energetic youngster to lead and you guide him from behind the scene, if you really want your party to win a good majority. Mahinda has already spoiled his name through his greediness...........

    SN Thursday, 29 November 2018 12:16 PM

    Please have your farewell party and let the new alliance take control.
