The CPC branch of the Jathika Sewaka Sangamaya reiterates that UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe should be named the party’s presidential candidate.

The Union’s Convenor, Ananda Palitha, expressed these views at a media briefing convened on Thursday evening.

Ananda Palitha expressed the following views:

[quote]The UNP Working Committee will meet tomorrow to select the UNP’s Presidential Candidate. UNP National Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe must definitely be the presidential candidate. It was the working committee that gave Ranil Wickremesinghe the power to stay as national leader of the party for six years. Therefore, Ranil Wickremesinghe should come forward with no problem at all. None of the UNP organisations have said directly that Ranil Wickremesinghe should not contest. It is only Girambe Thera and another Bhikkhu from the Bhikkhu Front that have said it. If there is a common view that Karu Jayasuriya should be put forward; then that view is held by traitors, government contractors who wish to deprive the rights of the people in this country who want to see the party come forward.[/quote]
