UNPer to become Dy. Speaker?

It is reported that an UNP member is to be appointed to the Deputy Speaker post vacated by MP Thilanga Sumathipala recently, reports the 'Mawbima' newspaper.

The newspaper further reports :

The post is to be given to the UNP as it remains unfilled by the SLFP.

Although several names have been proposed, these MPs have refused to accept the post, say sources from Sirikotha.
