The Deputy Leader Minister Sajith Premadasa has been named as the Presidential candidate of the United National Party by the party Working Committee.
The UNP Working Committee convened a meeting at 3.00 p.m. today at the party headquarters – Sirikotha, to finalize the presidential candidate of the United National Front (UNF).
Accordingly, during the meeting UNP leader Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had reportedly proposed the name of Minister Sajith Premadasa for candidacy and the Working Committee had unanimously approved it, a source said.
A large number of party supporters have currently gathered outside the UNP headquarters and have reportedly already started celebrating the decision with fireworks and loud cheers.

Sagith had to take 3 or more steps back wards as the UNP Policy is to abolish the Presidential system in our country
God help Sri Lanka. If this is the best it can produce I will immigrate.
Ranil wickremasinghe has demonstrated his leadership philosophy and democratic potential in nominating the lesser mortal, Mod*ya Premadasa as candidate for the Presidential Elections.
Mahinda Rajapaksa could not nominate a non-Rajapaksa family person who is more suitable as President than his dual citizen, alleged war criminal brother (eg Dinesh Gunawardane) as presidential candidate.
The UNP will lose the Presidential elections, badly, but Ranil has grown in stature and the UNP will continue to grow under his excellent leadership.
I mean I will emigrate
Thank you for stating your intentions publicly.
It appears, unfortunately, you do not have a ‘cram the books and gain a degree’ qualifications.
Without an intellectual capacity, you will not have a prominent or worthwhile position in SL society in the GR regime.
Without a ‘cram the books and gain a degree’ qualification, you will also, in your own words, be able get a toilet cleaner’s job overseas.
So Ranjith, I am sorry your future looks bleak while the entire country is awaiting the new and efficient GR regime, driving our country to immense prosperity under the efficient management of GR.
Maybe, you could join Mod*dasa and dig holes.
Mr Fiery Fernando . Let me tell you something. You are right that I don;t have even the GSCE O level. But I am not a “jara Srilanken” I am a European citizen access to live in 18 countries with out any problem. I was the transmission engineer for British Telecom and was working in all over UK and Germany. Honda, Ford, Tata, Branson who owns Virgin Atlantic to name few did not cram the book and pass the exams, So you are the one who have to prepare to emigrate and clean toilets and sweep the roads like many Sri Lankens who come here with out any practical knowledge.
Thank you for admitting that your are a European Citizen.
You should leave us, hard working, exploited and cheated citizens of SL to ourselves to fight for and build the nation.
Europeans have their own issues including the most debt-ridden countries in the World and Boris Johnson as the UK PM.
MR Fiery Fernando. Sri lankans hard working. Which planet are you living. 95 % are over employed and you have to sell parts of the country to pay your wages. I visit SRI 4 times a year. Every time almost all the people are so frustrated and want to leave the country, Mr Fiery Fernando when a country is so corrupted you want come out of it. The only solution is to call us who worked in foreign countries ( not cram the book and pass the exam toilet cleaners and road sweepers who got a Sri lankan degree which is not worth the paper is written) and form a government.
