Rejecting claims that the UNP Leadership Council had no powers vested in it, UNP parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella today said some elements were attempting to shatter the new unity that’s emerging within the party.

“There were numerous media reports that the Leadership Council had no powers. But I must say the leadership council has more powers than needed. Among them are powers to appoint electoral organizers, give nominations and handle disciplinary matters. Appointing members to the Working Committee will also come within the purview of the leadership council Chairman and the National leader. Some have wanted to rupture the new unity which is rising within the party. Everyone has realized that the UNP can win by getting together. For instance, there were two Bhikkhu unions of the UNP but they are discussing to join hands and work in harmony, “he said.

Mr. Kiriella told a news conference in Colombo, that 19 powers vested in the party leader would be transferred to the leadership council at the upcoming party convention.

“It is also to be included in the party constitution at the next party convention, he said. (Ajith Siriwardana)
