UNP Parliamentary Group had decided to appoint John Amaratunga as the Chief opposition whip a short while ago. The decision to appoint Mr. Amaratunga was made at the group meeting held in party head quarters ‘Sirikotha’ this evening. (YP)
With 144 Govt M.P.'s he will be the chief without the whip.

At least he is diplomatic in his speech. Though I think it's high time seniors like him should aim to groom the 2nd in commands to take over. As anything can happen in Sri Lanka, the UNP should be ready for election at any time - and guide & nurture the 2nd in command. They should have a shadow cabinet.

I thought for a moment that he was appointed as opposition leader. No chance since Ranil is still live & kicking while loosing elections.
