United National Party (UNP) Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa says he is ready to be UNP leader and Prime Ministerial candidate.
Asked by BBC Sinhala if he is prepared to lead the party, Premadasa said that he is prepared to accept any responsibility if the correct procedure is followed.
He said that he will accept any post if it has the backing of the current party leadership and others.
Premadasa said that he is not prepared to follow the “jungle law” to be made party leader. (Colombo Gazette)
