More UNPers to crossover
Eighteen United National Party middle level leaders will join the
Government party during the forthcoming Southern Provincial Council
Election, Media Minister Laksman Yapa Abeywardana said.
”These UNPers will join the Government from time to time in due
course. They have expressed their support to the Government after
realising the weaknesses of the UNP leadership”, the Minister
Abeywardana said yesterday at a press conference. The UNP Opposition
Leader of the Kamburupitiya Pradeshiya Sabha, Premawansa Warnakula
expressed his support to the Government at the press briefing.
”The UNP leadership is not capable enough to bring the party forward.
It is clearly evident in every election result. The UNP leadership
hasn’t any vision and mission which can carry the party forward.
Moreover the leadership has failed to identify the people’s hopes and
The policies of the UNP do not meet with the needs of its
membership”, Warnakula said.
