Mangala wants Sajith named the PM candidate Featured

Mangala Samaraweera wants the UNP to immediately announce Sajith Premadasa as the party’s candidate for the premiership, according to newstube.

Samaraweera told the party’s politburo meeting yesterday (15) that a major campaign should be launched to promote Ranil Wickremesinghe as the presidential candidate and Premadasa as the candidate for the premiership.

He went onto say that he might have strongly criticized Premadasa over his policies previously, but that his attraction to the rural populace was crucial for the UNP’s victory.

With Samaraweera’s remark, UNP leaders hopeful of becoming the PM have become worried, say Sirikotha sources.

Four days ago, he told a meeting of the party’s LG bodies representatives in Matara that Wickremesinghe should be the presidential candidate.
