During the UNP parliamentary group meeting held recently, MP Mayantha Dissanayake said it was Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe's prerogative as party leader to reveal his intentions on the presidential candidate.

He said there were various media reports mentioning different names as presidential candidates but that he did not support any particular hopeful.

However, several UNP MPs who attended the meeting told Daily Mirror that MP Dissanayake spoke in support of the premier’s candidacy.

    We don't need a president AND a Prime Minister in Sri Lanka!

    Candidacy of RW, in case of choice, will be another serious defeat of the UNP. As a result, it will take another decade for the UNP to rise up.

    I have a better chance of being the queen of England than RW has of being president. After 26 years if someone doesnt realize this, then they are definilty carrying out a contract for MR and the SLPP. Shame..

    RW should contest this time win or lose if he is a real leader, since he's the party leader
