UNP should form alliance after naming Prez candidate - Sajith

UNP Deputy Leader and Housing, Construction and Cultural Affairs Minister Sajith Premadasa yesterday insisted that the United National Party should form an alliance only after naming its Presidential candidate.

Issuing a statement to the news media, Housing Minister and Deputy Leader of the UNP said that certain newspapers had reported yesterday that both the Prime Minister and himself had come to an agreement for the formation of the UNP-led Democratic National Front as soon as possible.

“The majority of UNP Parliamentarians and parties that have expressed willingness to join this alliance are of the view  that the formation of an alliance should be carried out after naming the Presidential candidate,” Premadasa’s statement said.

Premadasa said that doing so would not only help create the proposed alliance, but it would also no doubt lead to numerous other parties and individuals joining together to turn it into a victorious alliance.

“What should happen today is to name the Presidential candidate and then design an agreement for the new alliance without spreading false news through the media,” he said.
