Former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is to enter Parliament through UNP’s solitary national list slot, Party Chairman Vajira Abeywardana said.
Mr. Abeywardana told a press conference in Galle that Mr. Wickremesinghe will enter Parliament in the near future. “It will happen in the middle of this year,” he told the conference.
There was an expectation within the UNP that Mr. Wickremesinghe should enter Parliament through the national list slot which is vacant for a long time.
Mr. Abeywardana had publicly told several times that Mr. Wickremesinghe should be the ideal person who should enter Parliament through the national list slot.
Meanwhile, UNP General Secretary Palitha Range Bandara when contacted by the Daily Mirror said Mr. Wickremesinghe will definitely come to Parliament through the national list, though an exact date has not been finalized as yet.
“We will let you know the date when he will be taking oaths,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

It is not going to do anything good for UNP. When you all took almost one year to make this decision how can you expect the people to depend on you all

We know the power hungry RW will definitely creep into the Parliament through the only national slot it got. Remember he is rejected by the people.

If he is having bit of a back born ,he should not enter parliament through national list. If people( masses) do not want him be it, why on earth he should go from back door. Please let him go on front door or he is better off at home. No puppeteering please.

In the present context of things this is the best that can happen to the country. The current administration has no clue as to where the country is heading.
