United National Party (UNP) seniors said they would meet on Monday to discuss the reorganizing and restructuring of the party.
UNP General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said in a statement it was being done with the intention of making it a vibrant entity.
“We request the people to take both victory and defeat in good spirits and maintain peace. UNP will be restructured and reorganized as it was done after every previous election,” he said. “We take the responsibility for the huge defeat suffered by the UNP in the face of internal and external challenges.”
Mr. Kariyawasam said the SLPP had secured a land-slide victory despite the services rendered by the UNP government on a long term and short term basis. (Yohan Perera)
