UNP rebels vow to prevent Ranil from extending term

UNP rebels vow to prevent Ranil from extending term

2012 Nov 30

The rebel UNP faction led by deputy party leader Sajith Premadasa would oppose any move to pave the way for incumbent leader Ranil Wickremesinghe to continue as the party leader for six years, a senior spokesman for the group told The Island. Meanwhile, UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said that 5,800 members of the party had been invited for the 54th Convention, scheduled to be held on December 1 at Sirikotha. Attanayake said that only those invited for the Convention would be allowed to enter the premises and they, too, should take their seats by 9.30 a.m. Asked whether the party had made adequate security arrangements, the MP said that all those seeking entry would have to produce invitations received from party headquarters.
