JHU against Working Committee selecting UNP candidate Featured

The Jathika Hela Urumaya has opposed the decision taken to allow the UNP Working Committee solely to select the presidential candidate.

In a statement issued they had requested the UNF candidate to be nominated without further delay.

The JHU view is that the parliamentary group of the UNF should gather and take a decision regarding the presidential candidate.

Therefore, the JHU states that currently there is a notion that the UNF Working Committee would be given the sole responsibility of selecting the presidential candidate and their party cannot agree with this decision.

The relevant statement is shown below.
