Nominate me and I’ll let you remain as PM, suggestion by Sajith

Sajith Premadasa during meeting on late Tuesday (10) with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has suggested only to nominate him as the presidential candidate, after which upon winning the polls he would allow Wickremesinghe to remain as Prime Minister and Leader of UNP, sources said.

However, Ranil Wickremesinghe has not paid much attention to the suggestion brought by Premadasa, as he was already aware that four out of 15 UNP MPs and a senior minister favouring the Sajith Faction keep hopes of being granted the Prime Ministry at the hands of Premadasa, and some of them even had personally received promises, according to sources.
