Sajith ready to contest Presidency

UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa said that he was ready to contest for the post of President at the next Presidential elections.

Speaking at the UNP convention today Premadasa said that he had opposed the amendments to the party constitution in the best interest of the party.

He said that he will support the current UNP leader for the post of President at the next election if he comes forward to contest.

However he said if the current leader does not contest then he is ready to nominate himself as a candidate at the Presidential election.

He said that in his view the next President of the country must be a member of the UNP.
