A broad opposition alliance led by the United National Party, where everyone including Navin Dissanayake and others is the need of the hour, UNP Deputy Leader Ruwan Wijewardene said over the weekend.

Addressing the UNP activists in Nuwara Eliya, Mr. Wijewardene said such an alliance is needed to gather necessary votes at the next national elections.

“Any party needs around seven million or more votes to win the next presidential election and also need to attract the Buddhist votes and votes of others. It is essential for us to prepare for such elections. We need to iron out our differences and come to a single platform. We also call out those who have left us to come back to us. Doors are still open to them,” he said.

“One must realise that political parties belong to its members. Members of political parties become agitated whenever their aspirations are not met. This has happened to Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) as well. Some SJB members have begun to threaten its leader Sajith Premadasa,” he added,

“Some SJB members are responsible for the fate which the UNP has suffered today,” he also said.

UNP National Organiser Navin Dissanayake who also participated in the meeting called for broad reform of the party. “Patchwork will not serve any purpose,” he said.(Yohan Perera and Shelton Hettiarachchi)

    SORRY NOT UNDER UNP. THEY THINK THEY ARE STILL A STRONG AND POPULAR PARTY. THE UNP CAN JOIN SJB IF THE WANT TO FORM A BROAD OPPOSITION

    As long as RW has nothing to do here they have good prospects in the future. Ranil should keep any tiny amount of his waning respect and retire from politics giving the leadership to Mr Ruwan Wijeywardena. MM
