KANDY ? The United National Party has appointed chief organisers for 130 out of 140 electorates of the country while the balance will be selected in the near future, Deputy Secretary General of the United National Party, and Kandy District MP, Tissa Attanayake said in Kandy on Friday (22).
He was speaking at a publicity meeting of the party chaired by chief organiser of the Senkadagala electorate Chandana Suriyabandara. The meeting was held at the Kandy YMBA hall.
MP Tissa Attanayake told the meeting that the UNP when it returns power at the forthcoming general election, will form a government of its own and that it required 51% strength.
President Kumaratunga has no right what so ever to remain in office after December 22, Attanayake claimed adding that if she made an attempt to cling on to her post in violation of the Constitution, the UNP will disregard her as the Executive President of the country. It is therefore advisable for her to respect the constitution of the country.
