UNP MP seat vacant until new leader announced!

UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has decided not to appoint a National List MP until the issue regarding the new leadership of the party is resolved, party senior John Amaratunga says.

Until then, the appointment of a National List MP will be delayed, he adds.

At the present, I am at the forefront of the National List as well as on the terms of seniority, he states.

He further added that although he is the most suitable person for the National List seat, he will abide by the decision taken by the party.
