The United National Party (UNP) met at the party headquarters in Sirikotha this evening to discuss party reforms, UNP sources said. The meting was held under the leadership of UNP Deputy leader Karu Jayasuriya. (ISA)
Ranil should not forego the leadership but expeditiously implement reforms. In life, just because you disagree with your spouse you do not discard him or separate from him. So the rest of the UNP members should toe the line. INTELLIGENT POLITICIANS LIKE GALITH ATHULATHMUDALI, GAMINI DISSNAYAKE TRIED TO IMPREACH PRESIDENT PREMADASA BUT IT FAILED. Of course there should be -CONFRONTATION, CONSENSUS AND COMPROMISE.

Without wasting time, come to a collective decesion. If you Omit Ranil from UNP leadership, that will be 'begining of the end' for the UNP that we know. I hope i am wrong.

In discussing and deciding on reforms, the UNP leaders are well advised to bear in mind that it would be totally counter-productive to heap the blame for the present predicament the party finds itself in solely at the doorstep of Ranil. All party leaders should bear the burden of that blame. If the overriding objective of reforms is the removal of Ranil from the party leadership at this point in time, that may not augur well for the future of the party.

Can you guys please stop fighting and get organized for the next election.. Help Ranil. No other option. Don't try rubbish..

mApER-The unp constituion was not signed in front of the marraige registrar.This is a party belonging to its members and not reserved for a selected few.If the membership feels that its leadership is not delivering then the root cause must be taken out there cant be a compromise for this.Any institution will prosper with the correct leadership and guidance.

Guess Ranil's done a pre-mature leadership building senario. He should stay and listen to the music from the rest of the world opera and build up his own tough team. C'mon Aliya!

Should not blame R.W. We all know How free and fair was all elections in tthe recent past. Reforming the party is a good move but all should get together and take the party forward and see ways and means of free and fair elections in the future for the betterment of all parties not alone the UNP.

what party reforms??? none of those reforms will work as long as Ranil the serial loser wil be UNP leader. if Ranil continues to be leader UNP can make up their minds to be in the opposition for ever!!!

How can we trust UNP to govern, when they cannot put their house in order ? A rejected leader clinging to power, supporters crossing to the opposition and low on morale. Take a cue from the recent elections. MR has the charisma and all the ingrediants what the country needs. Ranil is too blind to see this.

dont worry nothing will happen...there will be another commitee appointed to examine todays deliberations
Friday, 14 May 2010 08:21 AM
Charisma!!!! Can you please explain the connection between charisma and MR? Bill Clinton, John F Kennedy, Gamini Disanayake, Vijaya Kumaratunga etc etc were chasimatic leaders. MR maybe over popular among some people here but that doesnt mean he is charismatic.

Reforms should not include change of leader. In family life, if the wife or children dont agree with the husband - do they throw out the husband?

You cannot resurrect an old tree with rotten root and a diseased trunk. Think of replanting, but will take years to mature.

RW please step down if you are gentleman. look at other world leaders. those of you support the idea RW should go home, please join our Facebook campaign now: Ranil Wickramasinghe time to go!
