Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe who had indicated once again his intention of contesting for the presidency had discussed how he could muster support of other parties including the JVP for the candidate of the UNP led alliance.

The Premier had indicated this at a discussion held with a group of civil society activists at Temple Trees yesterday.

Venerable Dambara Amila Thera, Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne, Professor Chandraguptha Thenuwara, Jehan Perera and Kumudini Samuels have participated in the discussion.

Dr. Karunaratne told Daily Mirror that Prime Minister indicated his desire to contest for the presidency.

He said they discussed the possibility of getting the support of JVP and to win over the UNPers who had gone on a different path on to one stage.

Also, they have discussed the election strategies.

However, Dr. Karunaratne said there was no discussion on Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa’s candidature. (Yohan Perera)

    The day Ravi Karunanayake re-joined UNP, I have decided never to vote for UNP again. That was my tipping point.

    Venom Monday, 16 September 2019 05:57 PM

    I think this whole thing is a mega conspiracy.Bye Bye UNP, welcome SLPP!!!

    Kick out all these rogues, all of them brought this country to this situation. Vvote for the new people like Dr Ajith Colonne or Mr Nagananda in the next election. The ONLY and LAST hope for Sri Lanka.
