UNP annual sessions as scheduled: Ranil

The main opposition United National Party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday that the party’s annual sessions would not be put off.

It would be held on a date in December, he told the Sunday Times, countering claims by sections of his party that there was a move to delay it. He said at least two more meetings of the Working Committee this month and next would precede the convention.

Mr. Wickremesinghe said a new constitution for the UNP was almost ready and would be placed for approval before the annual sessions. It is based on the party’s Reforms Committee recommendations which have been endorsed by the Working Committee.

A team headed by Tilak Marapona, a former Minister of Defence and one time Attorney General, is heading the committee that is formulating a new constitution for the UNP.
