A meeting of the United National Party’s Dehiwela – Mount Lavinia Electorate Council was held on Saturday evening. The meeting was held under the auspices of Sunethra Ranasinghe.
Speaking at the event, National Leader of the UNP, Ranil Wickremesinghe stated,
“I proposed the vesting of powers in this leadership council to transfer responsibilities vested in me by the working committee to the leadership council. Not one person could do this.”
Subsequently, Parliamentarian Harin Fernando addressed the gathering,

He further stated:
“We do not see the usual response we get from the people when the leader attends an event. We have a practical problem today. But the people are still lacking the intelligence to accept it. But we see one thing. We have a question as to which way the UNP will go without Ranil Wickremesinghe’s brain.”
Parliamentarian Harin Fernando also said that one of the reason that the UNP is in decline is because they do not possess press, TV or Radio stations.
He further added,
Our own people say that we will not win as long as our leader is present. Ranjan Ramanayake and I discussed whether we should get the leader involved in some case or the other to see if the people would vote then.[/quote]
