Convening a media briefing on Friday, Southern Provincial Councillor, Maithri Gunaratne commented on the leadership of the United National Party.

Southern Provincial Councillor, Maithri Gunaratne shared these views;

“Karu Jayasuriya has brought forth an important proposal to field a common candidate from the opposition for the next Presidential Election. However, as the largest opposition party in the country and also as the largest party in the country, the United National Party must find a person from the party who can win 90 percent of the votes.”

He added; “Since there is no faith in Ranil Wickremesinghe, the party has been in the opposition for 18 years. Leave aside being in the opposition, our problem is that the only candidate who can be fielded from the opposition is also being undermined.”
