UNP Leader to be MP on June 22

Former Prime Minister and UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe is likely to be sworn in as a Member of Parliament on June 22, Party Chairman Vajira Abeywardena said.

The Working Committee of the United National Party (UNP) recently unanimously approved the appointment of Ranil Wickremesinghe to fill its National List slot in Parliament.

The Commissioner of Elections will be notified of the nomination next week and Ranil Wickremesinghe will be sworn in after the gazette notification is issued, Abeywardena said.

Abeywardena further said Ranil Wickremesinghe, a mature politician, is the most suitable person for the post of UNP MP and the only leader currently who can provide a solution to the crisis situation facing the country.
