United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake said today he was prepared to contest the elections to the Western Provincial Council (WPC).

He urged UNP front-liner Sajith Premadasa to take over the leadership of the Southern Province and pose a challenge to the Government at the upcoming Provincial Council Elections.

“We are having discussions with all political parties on the possibility of contesting the upcoming provincial council elections as a common opposition. The confidence which had eroded in the past is gaining momentum again. So I urge Sajith Premadasa to take on the leadership of the Hambantota District while I take on the leadership of the Colombo district and let’s pose a challenge to this corrupt regime and send it home rather than wasting time fighting among ourselves,” Mr. Karunanayke said.  (Ajith Siriwardana)

    Why a national leader should contest for provincial council when he can work for the entair country

    Fayad Friday, 20 December 2013 05:02 AM

    Why not give a try with Ranil

    investigator Friday, 20 December 2013 09:24 AM

    sajith is not unp man anymore,he is very supportive to mahinda,if he cant be leader,he will jump to slfp later.what he want is to be president through unp.if jump to slfp,he can make money,but cant be president.

    You and your leader has selected a very strong and popular leadership council. As such, you do not need the support of Sajith to win elections. Come one do not pass the buck, fight the next elections. Sorry we know the result.

    Ideal place for Sajith is Colombo !!

    Sando Thursday, 19 December 2013 11:30 AM

    what the use of Ranil? what is going to do? enjoying peoples money as opposition leader for ever

    ARAFATH Friday, 20 December 2013 06:46 AM

    Who is Dayasiri.he who criricise the government when he was in the party and made all the good work to split party into pieces.
    ranil is the bestleader ever this country need.he is free from corruption and have a vision.

    Rohan Friday, 20 December 2013 12:00 AM

    Hambanthota is a lost game for UNP. Sajith should be fight in Colombo. Its a plan to destroy Sajith further. via DM Android App

    Cobra Friday, 20 December 2013 01:04 AM

    He is well aware of Sajith's popularity in the South. But how about naming him for the Presidential polls as well?

    Lakshman Perera Friday, 20 December 2013 01:23 AM

    Let the national leader contest from Colombo and set am example.

    hks Friday, 20 December 2013 01:50 AM

    Can Ranil win at least the Biyagama electorate at the next PC election !

    praba Friday, 20 December 2013 01:56 AM

    Kabir says LC will do without Sajith. Ravi invites Sajith. Apparently LC is obsessed with the word Sajith. Make up your mind mates.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 20 December 2013 11:12 AM

    ManThillekeratne: Voters always go for the sensational characters who can perform monkey dances on the stage and scream at the top of their voices (e.g. Weerawansa) which Ranil is not capable of. So, the voters rejection is not a barometer to judge Ranil's capabilities as a leader.

    ManThillekerathne Friday, 20 December 2013 07:44 AM

    Yeas. Ranil's qualifications approved by the voter at the last 28 elections.

    fazly Friday, 20 December 2013 02:31 AM

    Realized the truth at last please join up to destroy this corrupt casino regime

    Fayad Friday, 20 December 2013 03:24 AM

    Ravi do not try a U-Turn and destroy the national leaders all ready under Ranil UNP is down to 26 million votes from 47 million
    Do you want to bring down to 15 million

    Yehiya Friday, 20 December 2013 12:21 PM

    Ravi & Sajith both failed in people view. Karu or Ruwan W.is the best for Colombo leadership.

    Combo Friday, 20 December 2013 04:14 AM

    posing a threat should not be the aim. proving that one is right should be the aim.

    zavahir Friday, 20 December 2013 12:23 PM

    Do not talk in Sinhalese, You are very weak , giving wrong picture.

    nicky karunarathna Friday, 20 December 2013 04:19 AM

    What this guy is trying - putting stone around Premadasa's neck and thrown to sea. He knows very well that the end of the Pramadasa saga or in another word - headache of the Party! good luck.

    Mason Friday, 20 December 2013 04:20 AM

    Sajith is a no gooder. Forget about him. He is not capable of any organizing, least of all Hambantota. Concentrate on winning elections. You and others have enough ability. Need of the hour is determination with a CAPITAL "D".

    namal Friday, 20 December 2013 04:32 AM

    why not sajith compete from colombo and you go to south. Colombo is more favourable to UNP.

    Dharme Thursday, 19 December 2013 02:38 PM

    Good move... Thanks Ravi for the brave decision.Trust Sajith also has guts to contest and show his worth...

    Roshan Friday, 20 December 2013 09:12 AM

    Wha Sajith? He is the deputy leader of the UNP these buggers trying to cut of Sajith. I think Ravi should contest for that election. Ravi is an idiot.

    serendib Friday, 20 December 2013 04:36 AM

    All are useless,we all know who Ravi K. is. Unfortunately no body to lead the party after Dayasiri left. UNP posses a set of puppets.

    ManThillekerathne Friday, 20 December 2013 04:36 AM

    What a fantastic comment of the Sri Lankan history.
