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)
