COLOMBO (News 1st) – A meeting will be held on the 19th of April (Thursday) to discuss reforms within the United National party.
Deputy Minister J.C. Alawathuwala said the party will be restructured before the 30th April. The Minister also said United National Party held discussions on party reform on April 12th and that a final decision is yet to be reached.
When the No Confidence motion was brought in against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe there were many members of parliament as well as activists who called for a change in the leadership of the UNP. There were talks of breakaway groups who were expected to vote against the PM, however following several rounds of lengthy discussions the PM was able to win them over with the promise of comprehensive party reforms.
Following the NCM vote, a special committee was appointed to suggest appropriate reforms to the party. Several positions within the party were also vacated in the aftermath of the NCM including the post of UNP General Secretary which was previously held by Min. Kabir Hashim.
