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.
