UNF decides on Sajith as Opposition Leader?

Members of the United National Front (UNF) have decided to nominate parliamentarian Sajith Premadasa’s name as the Opposition Leader.

This decision has been made at former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s residence on Friday (29).

Leader of the Tamil Progressive Alliance Mano Ganeshan told the Sunday Observer that Wickremesinghe also agreed to their proposition to give Premadasa the post. However, their decision will be formally announced during the next parliamentary session scheduled to be held on Tuesday (December 3). On Wednesday (27) a letter signed by 57 United National Party parliamentarians urging the heads of the party to appoint Premadasa as the Opposition Leader was handed over to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya.
