Former Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has informed the United National Party (UNP) today that he is ready to accept the leadership of the UNP.

Jayasuriya issuing a statement said that he has already informed the leader of the UNP  Ranil Wickremesinghe and senior party members in this regard.

"The UNP has fallen into such a pathetic state that party loyalists have become highly disappointed. However, I am of the belief that the party can be revamped if relevant reforms are made at the correct time,"

"There were invitations from various groups soon after the General Election was over, to take on the responsibility to lead this party with highest prestige on the right path,"

    Not a single parliament member and you want to lead the party. Is it a joke? Why don`t you retire and stay at home. Please don`t be so greedy.

    Good move but whether Power Greedy Ranil vacate the Chair? I doubt, he will remain until he is kicked out by the Public.

    Do you want to hand over leadership to your bearded son in law?

    Old Bastard Tuesday, 25 August 2020 07:06 AM

    Now who is older - Karu or Ranil? Why not consider asking DS Senanayake to lead the grand old party?

    Joshua Tuesday, 25 August 2020 07:19 AM

    Is there anything left in UNP to lead? Also do not forget .....Ranil is still seated there like a plum pudding

    It's time to go to the last bed. People remember how you betrayed the party along with the other 17 goons like you.
