Four proposals approved at UNP convention

 Four proposals including the setting up of a leadership council, which were presented to the 55th UNP convention held at Sirikotha, were unanimously approved a short while ago.
 
The setting up of a new mechanism to bring the party into a victorious path including the forming of a leadership council, scrapping of executive presidency, urging the government to provide relief to the people by curbing corruption and wastage and establishing a government which provides relief to the people are among the proposals which were approved at the convention.
 
The proposals were presented by UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake and seconded by Parliamentarian D.M. Swaminathan. 
 
Addressing the convention, party National Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe alleged that President Mahinda Rajapaksa was attempting to destroy the UNP just like ancient king Ajasaththa destroyed the Licchavis clan in India by turning one against another.

“Ajasaththa knew that the Licchavis were powerful, therefore he destroyed them by sending various forces. President Mahinda Rajapaksa is using the very same technique by sending his allies to destroy our party. We, as a party should stick together to be powerful like Licchavis,” he said.
 
He said each UNP member should come together and work hard without any disagreements, to topple the present government in 2014. “I have given many powers to the leadership council towards a political victory in a general election in 2014 because I want a UNP government and we can’t stay in the opposition forever. Therefore we should work hard towards achieving our main goal,” Mr. Wickremesinghe said.  (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    chandran -Kandy Sunday, 22 December 2013 04:33 AM

    According to my knowledge Opp.Leader Ranil must need to lead the his party. Because He is a well experience person.So, UNP has no lucky to come to power.

    sarath Saturday, 21 December 2013 11:29 AM

    above four resolutions have no impact to the govt as they are only limited to resolutions only

    dots Sunday, 22 December 2013 04:35 AM

    waste of time.

    a very good move. via DM Android App

    Randeniya Banda Sunday, 22 December 2013 07:09 AM

    "scrapping of executive presidency" This was promised by MR too at the last election. Whom are you trying to fool.

    A K A S DE SILVA Saturday, 21 December 2013 03:06 PM

    Ranil is acting like King Ajasatta not MR.

    janman Saturday, 21 December 2013 03:47 PM

    Don,t blame the president.You are the person who is trying to destroy the party.HANDOVER THE LEADERSHIP TO SOME ONE ELSE:

    Abdul Saturday, 21 December 2013 04:00 PM

    It is as usual

    coastel-beruwala Saturday, 21 December 2013 04:24 PM

    what a shame! they can't select a proper leader! by this weakness strength this government more n more!!!

    Prometheus Saturday, 21 December 2013 05:03 PM

    Now UNP stands for "Useless National Party". MR is extremely fortunate to have these clowns as the opposition.

    mota Saturday, 21 December 2013 05:37 PM

    Hmmmm!!!!!!
    Abolishing executive presidency? Why not start it in your own house? Why not abolish the executive leadership to bring democracy to your party first? Whom are you trying to fool? You have knocked the glass down. You can never put the pieces together. Anyway UNP is not worth now. Better shift to some other force. General is the ideal choice.

    dharmapala Saturday, 21 December 2013 05:46 PM

    UNP party need a new face for the party to rceogance the partty,present members of the UNP not fit lead the political party. out siders are interfearing in UNP party and split the party members, UNP party members became a jokers to the public.

    Ayanthi Monday, 23 December 2013 12:00 AM

    Ranil is destroying the party. NO ONE ELSE! via DM iPad app

    Perumal Monday, 23 December 2013 12:28 PM

    He says "I have given powers to the Council". What was given by him, could be taken back. No one says " The Party gave powers to the Leadership council". Or like some one in 1940s said is it " I am the Party, I am the Leader, I am the State (in future)

    Gamarala Sunday, 22 December 2013 12:34 AM

    The UNP has lost it way and may never come to power in Sri Lanka. They seem to be wandering in the wilderness like a wild elephant.

    Jagath Leanage Sunday, 22 December 2013 12:36 AM

    After a long time Ranil has attacked maara. Why? Are you to contest again for next Presidential election? If so last nail of coffin and end of UNP for ever. S.F. will get more votes than Ranil.

    C.K.Lankaputhra Sunday, 22 December 2013 12:45 AM

    Whether it is a god or a devil, anybody who genuinely comes forward to change the present constitution, we will vote for him. Sri Lanla has become a hell due to this constitution, the presidency and the present set.

    B.Fernando Sunday, 22 December 2013 12:56 AM

    A leader who has eyes cannotsee and having ears but cannothear and UNP is doomed for ever as long as is there as leader of UNP or leader of the oppsition

    pereraksi Sunday, 22 December 2013 12:00 AM

    Main goal should be good socio economical environment for people. not governing the country or not being forever opposition kind thing. after that you can have your government via DM Android App

    Andrew Pitugala Sunday, 22 December 2013 01:46 AM

    Ranil has made a powerful statement and looking at others UNP should continue with Ranil for a few more years. Those opposed to Ranil including Sajith and me must unite with Ranil, to build up the party once again to its past glory.

    mithra Sunday, 22 December 2013 02:45 AM

    Kick this inefficient anti-UNPier Ranil out then automatically the appropriate leader will come out and the party will adjust itself to normalcy.

    Dharme Sunday, 22 December 2013 02:48 AM

    Who is that leader !!!

    Dharme Sunday, 22 December 2013 02:49 AM

    Sujith It is high time for you to decide;Follow the leader or get out

    Andrew Pitugala Sunday, 22 December 2013 02:03 PM

    Sajith must put the PARTY before SELF and must prove that he can work with others to establish that he is leadership material.

    ANTON Sunday, 22 December 2013 03:21 AM

    PROPOSAL NO. 01
    RUNIL MUST RETIRE FROM THE LEADERSHIP
    NO.02 : DRIVE OUT ALL THE MORONS FROM THE PARTY.
    NO 03: GET THE MAXIMUM USE OF SAJITH
    NO 04 : DON'T TALK BULLSHIT.

    janman Saturday, 21 December 2013 09:54 AM

    What about of ousting the leader and choosing a new leader who can fight this government.

    janman Sunday, 22 December 2013 04:22 AM

    You are correct.We all must rally around him and try to win enough seats to his party.

    saduni Sunday, 22 December 2013 04:24 PM

    More proposals
    NO5: Remove Sajith -He works for his selfish goals, not for party
    NO6: Organize protests all over against the government corruption
