President Maithripala Sirisena says United National Party (UNP) leader Ranil Wickremesinghe will never step down and let others take the party leadership role.
He said that Wickremesighe has been the leader of the UNP for 25 years and will not allow anyone to rise above him.
The President said that while said Wickremesinghe was speaking of democracy in the country, he has failed to ensure democracy in his own party.
President Sirisena expressed these views at a discussion held at the President’s office today.
The President said that all special projects conducted under the President’s office will continue in the year 2019. (Colombo Gazette)
