Mr. Sajith Premadasa may not form another political movement in the backdrop of the leadership crisis in the United National Party (UNP), MP Prof. Ashu Marasinghe said, stressing that the former presidential contender has the opportunity to lean forward. 

He made this observation speaking at the press conference held in the Sirikotha Party Headquarters today (13).

Mr. Sajith Premadasa has appeared forward as the Leader of Opposition, he said, revealing that Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe would remain as the leader of the UNP and Mr. Karu Jayasuriya would work towards the upcoming General Election, as suggested.

These propositions are still being taken into conversation, he added. 

However, Mr. Wijepala Hettiarachchi contributing to the conference said it would be better if Mr. Sajith Premadasa is instated as the Party Leader, indicating a contradiction of opinions between the two regarding the future of the UNP.
