UNP General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam says if the United National Party (UNP) wins over 90 seats at the next general election, there is an opportunity to form a government. The UNP Secretary also states that if this happens the SLFP would also join the UNP government.

He was speaking at a media briefing in Colombo today 24th.

Mr. Kariyawasam says that there is no problem with the polling symbol and that the elephant symbol or the swan mark can be used for that. He also pointed out that the issue of polling symbol would be resolved
before the end of this week.

Responding to a question posed by journalists as to whether there is an attempt to contest with the JVP or the TNA, the UNP secretary said that no such proposal had been submitted.

However, it is likely that such a move would be possible to form a government after the general election.
