UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe should name party’s Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa as the party’s Prime Ministerial candidate without delay at the forthcoming Presidential election, former MP and Opposition leader of the Uva Provincial Council Harin Fernando said on Saturday.

Speaking at a party meeting in Kollonawa, Mr. Fernando said Mr. Wickremesinghe should name Mr. Preamdasa as party’s Prime Ministerial candidate at the beginning of the Presidential Election campaign.

“We are ready to dedicate ourselves to the party if Mr. Wickremesinghe did his bit and name Mr. Premadasa as the Prime Ministerial candidate,” Mr. Fernando said.

Mr. Fernando said Mr. Wickremesinghe should hand over the responsibility of campaign for the Presidential Election to others in the party including Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa, himself and others as they could ensure success in the election.(Yohan Perera)

    Great move. we are with you...But if Mr. Ranil remains as party leader for sure this time also party will defeat. There is no doubt about is. So now its time to think and act wisely if UNP should win in this election

    Yes, shades of JR and Premadasa who carried out a magnificent election campaign and achieved a 5/6th majority in 1977.

    Slowly and steadily we bring Sajith to defeat the corrupt regime. I hope Ranil will be in the seen but must bring Sajith forward. Sajith can win Elections.
