UNP MP Sajith Premadasa says that he will consider accepting any position within the UNP only if he is elected through an internal party election. Premadasa has also dismissed reports that he has been offered a deputy leader’s position by the UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.
“I haven’t being offered the deputy leaders position of the party unlike the stories that are doing its rounds,” Premadasa said.
Premadasa added that he did not believe positions could be filled by selection and that it should only be filled by an internal election at the party convention. He said that only then will he consider taking a position within the party.
