The MPs of the United National Party (UNP), who are loyal to Housing, Construction and Cultural Affairs Minister Sajith Premadasa, are planning to make representation to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe asking for a vote at the parliamentary group and the Working Committee to decide on the presidential candidate, Daily Mirror learns.

The decision has been taken since the one-on-one meeting between Mr. Wickremesinghe and Mr. Premadasa ended without any solution in sight.

According to informed sources, Mr. Premadasa expressed his intention to contest the presidential elections. Also, Mr. Wickremesinghe notified Mr. Premadasa that he too had a plan to be the candidate this time. Sources close to both the leaders confirmed this to the Daily Mirror yesterday.

The Premadasa loyalists have decided to seek a vote because there is no mutual agreement in this regard. A minister who is close to Mr. Premadasa said on condition of anonymity that a letter, bearing the signatures of the MPs, will be sent to the Prime Minister soon. (Kelum Bandara)

    been a life long UNPer. The day you reappointed Ravi K after all the things he did, was the day I decided never to vote for you. Even if Obama comes from UNO, no way.

    Either Ranil should come forward and contest as he is the present leader or else he should resign and give room for others to take over. No substitutes please.
