by Zacki Jabbar

The UNP Working Committee yesterday, picked Sajith Premadasa as the party’s presidential candidate.

Sajith’s name was proposed by Prime Minister and UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and approved by the Working Committee, after it had endorsed a resolution that it remained committed  to taking forward the current governments constitutional reform process with regard to devolution, electoral reforms and abolition of the executive presidency, in concurrence with the Prime Minister and all stakeholders.

It was resolved that Premadasa would contest under a symbol other than the elephant, since he would be the UNF’s presidential candidate.
