The United National Party (UNP) says it humbly accepts the defeat of the Elpitiya Pradeshiya Sabha election.
Non-Cabinet Minister Ajith P. Perera stated this addressing a press conference held in Colombo this morning (12).
He added that the UNP accepts the results of the Elpitiya PS election and that the party would take steps to rectify some of the issues in the election campaign.
Deputy Minister Nalin Bandara, who also addressed the media briefing, said that winning the Elpitiya Pradeshiya Sabha does not mean that you have won the country.
He also said that the results of Elpitiya Pradeshiya Sabha election are not a proxy of the Presidential Election results.
Non-Cabinet Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe said the Elpitiya Pradeshiya Sabha election was anyway a disadvantageous situation for the UNP.
