At a media briefing convened on Monday, journalists quizzed UNP MP Ranjith Maddumabandara, on whether the party will re-appoint MP Sajith Premadasa as the Deputy Leader of the UNP.

UNP Parliamentarian Ranjith Maddumabandara replied, “A Working Committee Meeting has not been called as yet. Talks are being held to unite everyone in the party to ensure that there is harmony in the party. ”

He added: “Our constitution used to have a clause for a vote for the position of Deputy Leader and Sajith Premadasa was elected to the position of Deputy Leader. As per the new amendment, the Deputy Leader is appointed by the Leader. I think and I hope that since this is what the people are calling for too, that is democracy in the party, that he will soon be appointed to that position.”
