UNP General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said today the party, together with its allies, would decide on its presidential candidate next week.

“Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe informed me that the decision will be taken next week. However, he elaborated on whether the decision would be taken by the working committee and the parliamentary group. All I can say is that we will decide on the candidate next week,” he told Daily Mirror. (Yohan Perera)

    Why is this postponing game? This shows the real inside of UNP, which cannot even decide on their candidate.

    SLPP is way ahead as a modern party and the indecision in UNP is hindering the party loyalist from their voluntary contribution.

    UNP will decide next week but the people have already decided. What a dumb party. Are they living in the clouds.

    cheers Thursday, 19 September 2019 06:48 AM

    Dont worry unless UNP can suggest a person like Batiudeen, Hakeem, Sally, Mujabir, Mano, Sampanthan, or Anura

    Why don't you make it after November 16th?

    Kumara Dharmarathne Thursday, 19 September 2019 07:26 AM

    You guys keep postponing date. Did you ever think that people consider you are a spineless joker. If you cannot decide on the candidate, it's better to keep quite until decide on some one rather than keep saying " Will announce next week."

    UNP will declare its candidate after the presidential elections. How dare you open your mouth and make such insipid statements. You guys are like parrots.

    "next week" ! "next week" ! "next week" - similar to "wolf", "wolf", "wolf"lf Thursday, 19 September 2019 07:36 AM

    First it was the galle face green. Then it was "next week". "next week" many many times weeks ago. we now wonder whether finally we will be told to watch out for nomination day to know who the candidate is. !

    Best the "other" hopefuls get their "party" nomination papers ready, cleared and certified in order not to be made to realise that they have been dropped out of the race and caught unawares..

    RS Thursday, 19 September 2019 07:45 AM

    Next week?? Why don't you guys do it after the 16th of November??

    Working committee is selected by Ranil. So if the vote is only for the working committee that means Ranil selects the candidates.

    WHETHER HE DECIDES OR NOT PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY DECIDED.
