Tissa to arrange meeting with Ranil, Karu, Sajith


By Dayaseeli Liyanage   
Former General Secretary of the United National Party, Tissa Attanayake has taken the responsibility of arranging a meeting between UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe, Sajith Premadasa and Karu Jayasuriya. 

He said that he accepted the responsibility during his meeting with Ranil Wickremesinghe.

He said that he took over the responsibility of arranging a meeting between the three and thereby creating an opportunity for them to arrive at a final decision over the 
leadership issue. 

Ranil Wickremesinghe had said that even though he was willing to attend this meeting, Sajith Premadasa would not come for a vis-à-vis meeting with him, Attanayake said.

Mr Wickremesinghe had also said that this was not the best time for the party to be divided into factions.   

Wickremesinghe also said that the best thing to do was to find a solution to the leadership issue after the General Elections, added Tissa Attanayake.   

“Ranil Wickremesinghe also said that this meeting should be the final opportunity to arrive at a decision and it should not be postponed furthermore. He also said that Karu Jayasuriya, whom he met subsequent to his meeting with Ranil Wickremesinghe, had also agreed for a meeting”.   

“A discussion would be held with Sajith Premadasa in the near future and a date would be fixed immediately for the three individuals to convene and arrive at a final decision,” he said.
