UNP confident of obtaining over 115 seats

Lakshman Kiriella (2)The United National Party (UNP) today said it was confident of securing more than 115 seats in Parliament at the next Parliament elections.

UNP MP Lakshman Kiriella said that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) was clearly divided and has been “hijacked” by outsiders.

He said that people like Wimal Weerawansa, Dinesh Gunawardena and Vasudeva Nanayakara are now dictating terms to the SLFP.

Kiriella said that the SLFP has not learned from the past and instead continues to make the same mistakes even now.

The former UNP member said that to learn from the past the SLFP may need a new leader who will identify the mistakes and rectify them. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. unp party should nominate sajith premadasa as the prime ministerial candidate,lots of votes will be lost for a gay person as a unp candidate.

  2. In 201 election Rajapaksa secured 140 seats while UNP got only 60. If UNP did not have Cabinet Ministers and Prime Minister they had a good chance of convincing people that UNP has high potential of developing the country. Yahapalana government predominantly ran by UNP and did nothing to country. Rajapaksa is back in the town with massive collection of material collected during last few months to use in election stages. Therefore most Ranil can achieve may be 45seats in the coming election.
