The youth wing of the UNP Jathika Yovun Peramuna has passed a resolution calling for the appointment of former State Minister Ruwan Wijewardene as the new party leader, its office bearers said today.

Jathika Yovun Peramuna Secretary Dharshana Chathuranga Brahamana told a news conference that 32 of the 42 executive members of the youth front had voted in favour of the resolution calling for the appointment of Mr. Wijewardene as the new leader.

“We initially passed a resolution on August 13, 2020 calling the party that six names including Mr. Wijewardene, Arjuna Ranatunga, Akila Viraj Kariyawasam, Palitha Range Bandara, Karu Jayasuriya and Navin Dissanayake should be considered when deciding on the top post. However, we passed another resolution on Wednesday calling for the appointment of Mr. Wijewardene as the new leader,” he said.

He also said the Yovun Peramuna would welcome a UNP and Samagi Jana Balawegaya merger.

Meanwhile, UNP Anuradhapura Candidate Mervin Silva called for the appointment of former Speaker Karu Jayasuriya as the new leader at a news conference.

UNP sources said the working committee meeting scheduled for tomorrow was postponed to next week.

“The working committee had to be put off for the next week as party Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has to appear before the police unit of the commission probing the Easter Sunday attacks," a party source said. (Yohan Perera)

    Suicidal to appoint another Ranil, who was sleeping while April 21 bombs went off. Most lethargic, sleepy man to handle Defence.

    Is this some kind of a paid advertisement.

    You KNOW Ranil was a Scumbag and a weak leader 'Coz Ranil didn't groom a leader from rank and file!!!

    Ranil will hang on to that seat until his death. Wait and see.

    He is not suitable at all. Mervyn Silva is the ideal candidate to be named Bean No.2. (No.1 as all of you know its Ranil)

    Dr. A.T. Perera Friday, 04 September 2020 04:18 PM

    UNP is already dead and no one can give life again. Now it is ruled by a Evil Spirit Called Ranil Wickramasinghe.

    Kumara Aponsu Friday, 04 September 2020 04:52 PM

    May appoint JRJ to come back and do something to Ranil first and then to UNP!
