The secretary general of the United National Party should nominate the party's prime ministerial candidate for the next general election before opening threats and challenges to its leaders, Matale District MP Wasantha Aluvihare said. 

The MP made this observation in response to party secretary MP Akila Viraj Kariyawasam for his comments that those who publicly speak of UNP's internal affairs would be inquired unbiased. 

In the wake of counting down days for general election, the United National Party, in which the party mechanism has not yet been reestablished, should not be further pushed off, the MP stressed, pointing out that the stalled UNP supporters should be rescued and the party should walk back to victory.

Therefore, the party should decide whether the next general election will be a serious defeat or a serious victory, he added.
