There will be no change in the Opposition leadership, UNP Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe today stated in parliament. Answering a question raised by Chief Government Whip Dinesh Gunawardena, Wickremasinghe said that what the country needed now was a change in government and not a change within the opposition.


A statement was earlier made by UNP MP Lakshman Kiriella that there was a proposal to appoint two different persons for the UNP leadership and opposition leader post.

Gunawardena maintained that while preparing the budget for next year the government has assumed that the UNP leadership and opposition leadership would remain with one person, and to inform the parliament of any such change.


To this Wickremasinghe strongly maintained that there will not be any change in the UNP or opposition leadership.
