Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says the United National Party (UNP) will use the August 17 Parliament elections to bury former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s reign for good.

The UNP leader noted that his party will look to continue with the good governance concept used at the last Presidential elections.
He said that the public however me be allowed to decide who they feel is best to govern the country. (Colombo Gazette)
