PM asks Sajith to present his winning formula

12 September 2019 05:19 am - 19     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is reported to have asked Housing, Construction and Culture Affairs Minister Sajith Premadasa to present his political formula for winning the presidential elections.

He held talks with Mr. Premadasa for two hours on Tuesday night. According to sources close to the Prime Minister, the latter said the United National Party (UNP) could not win as a single party, and therefore it was important to get the support of all the like-minded parties including the Tamil National Alliance (TNA).

For that purpose, he told Mr. Premadasa to see whether it was possible to garner the support of all. It was also stressed that Mr. Premadasa should spell out his policy on demands by these parties.

Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne who participated in the meeting was assigned to coordinate negotiations between Mr. Premadasa and the alliance partners of the UNP. (Kelum Bandara)

    Jude Thursday, 12 September 2019 08:22 AM

    The winning formula made up with 2 names, SAJITH PREMADASA!!!

    Nic Xavier Thursday, 12 September 2019 08:23 AM

    How about RW presenting his winning formula. All his past formulas have been nothing but sordid losers for over 20 years.

    Thought Premadasa had already become the President.

    Sajith has UNP party members as well as general public of Sri Lanka. He is the best candidate

    I don't like either Sajith or Ranil but leader should be an example for the team members. Before he asks for his formula, leader has to have a formula which he has proven himself. Unfortunately this leader is just a dummy no proven results. Feel sorry for the UNP

    Premalal Perera Thursday, 12 September 2019 09:18 AM

    Please leave politics. That is my winning formula.

    Raj Thursday, 12 September 2019 11:56 AM

    After all these years he had a losing formulas and now asking others a winning formula!

    Girigoris Singho Thursday, 12 September 2019 12:23 PM

    Sajith must ignore Ranil's demand and tell Ranil to ask the voters why they are demanding Sajith to be the UNP Presidential candidate. Voters don't want those caught in Bond Scams as President.

    kapila Perera Thursday, 12 September 2019 05:19 PM

    I would like to see UNP, SLFP and SLPP are eradicated from Sri Lankan soil for the betterment of the country.

    Sam Thursday, 12 September 2019 07:10 PM

    This is the winning formula for Sajith; Win= (number of hours he did not sleep/ height)

    Rehan Pereira Thursday, 12 September 2019 09:34 PM
