2 UNP groups to contest polls under one symbol Featured

It is reported that the two sides are negotiating to unite under one symbol and end the conflict between the United National Party (UNP) and the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB).

It is further reported that as the SJB has reached a final decision to contest the election,ability or inability to contest under Elephant symbol will not make a difference.

Meanwhile, it is reported that Karu Jayasuriya has not favored the proposal made by a group of UNP members to appoint him as the party leader.

It is said that Ranil Wickremesinghe too has not responded on this regard.

It is also reported that the decision to contest under the elephant symbol is due to the fact that the nominations are due to be given in a few days and the party should not suffer a division.
