Ranil and Sajith hold do or die talks

United National Party (UNP) leader, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa held do or die talks today in an attempt to reach a consensus on the Presidential candidate of the United National Front at the Presidential elections.

While the UNF has not yet decided on its Presidential candidate Premadasa has begun a campaign to muster support for him to be named as the candidate.

Premadasa has said he will contest the Presidential elections at any cost and hoped to do so with the support of the UNP leader.

However some senior members in the UNP do not support Premadasa being picked as the candidate.
