Ranil's condition for new UNP leader

Former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has said that the decision regarding the appointment of a new party leader, should be taken by the party.

He was addressing the public who had arrived at the UNP party office at Alfred House Gardens, Colombo yesterday (08), upon learning of Mr. Wickremesinghe's arrival.

However, Mr. Wickremsinghe has said that he would pose a single condition to the new leader, and that is, the new party leader should have everyone's support or it would be useless to be in that position.

He was also questioned about the sole national list position the UNP was entitled to. In response, Mr. Wickremesinghe had said that it should be a party decision and that party bigwigs had not come to a decision so far.
