UNP Deputy Leader and MP Sajith Premadasa today said he is ready to contest next Presidential polls if the present UNP leader Ranil Wickremasinghe does not contest as the UNP candidate.

Speaking at the party convention today, MP Premadasa stated he is of the firm belief that none other than the party leadership should contest next Presidential polls representing the party. “If the present leader does not wish to contest under any circumstance, I wish to make this an opportunity to announce my willingness to contest as the Presidential candidate for UNP while providing leadership for the party as well.” (LP)

    Just wait for your turn like your father. Haste makes waste.

    HE WILL SAY SOMETHING NOW AND AT THE LAST MOMENT WILL CHANGE LIKE LAST TIME

    I don't think you are ready for this yet... day by day you are loosing your popularity as well...

    Rahmathullah Saturday, 01 December 2012 06:48 PM

    Bold and courageous. You can muster more support than the present leader, who acts like an adviser to present rulers.

    Jagath Leanagej Saturday, 01 December 2012 06:50 PM

    Agreed. Unless you contest , M.R. will win easily.

    Ponna Bibiley Saturday, 01 December 2012 07:04 PM

    Wow! What lofty ambitions.

    @ DMirror Fan,

    Absolutely true.....

    Ravi Saturday, 01 December 2012 11:06 PM

    Yes, we will call you if necessary.

    Janaki Kalansuriya Saturday, 01 December 2012 11:13 PM

    No, not necessary. Learn to wait for your time gathering more maturity to be a leader of the people of this country, and not just an usurper who thinks the post is a family heritage.

    lovesri Saturday, 01 December 2012 11:34 PM

    Leadership battle continues. No one of you will be the next president.

    Manushya Sunday, 02 December 2012 01:51 AM

    You may be ready. But people are not ready to accept you or your fallen apart party

    Nodrog Sunday, 02 December 2012 05:21 AM

    This guy couldn't even beat RW and he wants to compete with MR?

    Kasun Sunday, 02 December 2012 06:16 AM

    Without being able to defeat the Ranil's regime, how can you defeat Mahinda's powerful regime..

    Sri Lanka has no opposition at all... Bye the way I wish you all the best to raise your voice to strengthen the opposition..

    Balla Sunday, 02 December 2012 06:49 AM

    What rubbish are you talking????????

    patriot Sunday, 02 December 2012 08:43 AM

    Sorry Sajith, first learn not to scream so loud at meetings. People like to hear voices pleasing to their ears.

    DMirror Fan Saturday, 01 December 2012 01:21 PM

    One thinks this us his party. The other thinks this is his father's party. But actually this is PEOPLE's PARTY.
    Work for party's unity not for further deterioration. Try to win the next election.
