The UNP yesterday said it would do its best to avoid any division within the party.   

UNP MP Vajira Abeywardene told a media conference that his party was ready to make maximum sacrifice to safeguard unity of the party. He invited Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa and others to sign an MoU with the UNP. 

“We are ready to make maximum sacrifice to safeguard the interests of UNP and will keep the doors open for Mr Premadasa and the group to get into an agreement with us” he said.   
“We are ready even to sacrifice the general secretary’s post as well and to have a continuous dialogue with the other group” he added.   

“ It will be possible to form a government if both fractions contest in uniformity even if we don’t secure 113 seats” , he also said.   Mr Abeywardene said the constitution of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya ( SJB) is more or less the constitution of Ape Jathika Peramuna. 

SJB should change this constitution and make it suitable for an alliance” he said.
