  • Says Appeal Court decision indicates those contesting under elephant symbol are the real UNPers

By Yohan Perera   

Those who traditionally voted for the UNP should decide whether they are going to destroy the party or not at this election, UNP Leader and former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday.   

Speaking during an election rally Mr. Wickremesinghe said Tuesday’s Appeal Court decision to reject the petition filed by Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) against the UNP decision to suspend those members who joined SJB to contest the general election, was an indication that those contesting under the elephant symbol were the real UNPers.  
“The Appeal Court decision had made it clear that those who are contesting under the elephant are the real UNPers. It has also made it clear that the SJB is another party. Therefore those who have been traditionally voting for the UNP should decide whether they are going to vote for the elephant at this election and safeguard the elephant and the UNP or whether they are going to vote for another party and destroy it,” Mr. Wickremesinghe said.
