Akila Viraj Kariyawasam

Majority in UNP Group and Working Committee have decided there is no need for a change in party leadership at this moment says Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam.

Meanwhile, an advisory committee comprising eleven ministers and three MPs have been appointed to provide recommendations to make changes in UNP higher ranks, Kariyawasam added.

The 11 member-committee has been given more powers than both the Working Committee and the Parliamentary Group.

Navin Dissanayake, Ajith P. Perera, Harin Fernando, Akila Viraj Kariyawasam, Eran Wickremeratne, Ruwan Wijewardene, Mangala Samaraweera and Ranjith Madduma Bandara are some of the members of the new committee.
