Sajith dreams of a prez from UNP

... pledges support to Sirisena


UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa, MP, has said that he still dreamt of a president from the UNP.

Reminiscing of his father, Ranasinghe Premadasa’s commitment to securing a commanding five-sixth majority in Parliament for the then JRJ’s government, MP Premadasa said that the party always dreamt of electing a UNPer as the president. "Even today our dream is the same," Premadasa said, adding that it was his personal opinion.

The Deputy Leader was addressing Kurunegala District UNP Bala Mandalaya on Sunday (Nov 23).
