UNP MP Nalin Bandara Jayamah said yesterday he and several other MPs will be compelled to think of an alternative if the party’s parliamentary group failed to decide on handing over the party leadership to Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa at today’s parliamentary group meeting.

"We expect the UNP seniors to bow down to the view of a majority party members,” he said adding that under Mr. Premadasa's leadership the party could win the most number of seats.

“If the UNP emerges victorious at the next general election it could support President Gotabya Rajapaksa to carry out his new development programme especially in a situation where differences are growing between him and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa,” the MP said.

He said the party should have made use of Speaker Karu Jayasuriya in 2015. “UNP would not have suffered the fate it had suffered if it had fielded Mr. Jayasuriya as the common candidate at the 2015 presidential election,” the MP said. (Yohan Perera)

    sir, your statement in a way is a black mailing the party. in a democracy, you should respect the majority of the party members regardless of what is the party decision.

    Sajith dictated that he should be the presidential candidate and his wife claimed that she would be the next first lady. It is not a democratic way

    Let us know what has he done for the party? For the people? Does he ever created or invented anything on his own? What qualifications he has to become a leader for the giant party? Do you know he supported Maithree during the October 26 th coupe against the party? If he becomes the be t leader party can stay in opposition another 20 years.
