No UNP May Day rally this year

The United National Party (UNP) Working Committee has decided not to hold a May Day rally this year.

It has been decided to hold a meeting on May Day to commemorate the founding fathers of the party without much public participation and to broadcast it live on the internet.

The decision has been taken with the safety of the people in mind as the COVID-19 situation is yet to subside, a spokesman for the party said.

The United National Party celebrated May Day last year with a low key event which was broadcast online due to the pandemic.
