Ranjan ready to contest as an independent MP

United National Party (UNP) Parliamentarian Ranjan Ramanayake says he is prepared to contest the next Parliamentary election as an independent MP if required.

Speaking to reporters today Ramanayake said that UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe had informed him that some UNP members have requested that nominations not be granted to him to contest the next election.

Ramanayake, however, said that UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa had assured him that he will ensure nominations are given from the UNP.

The actor turned politician said that if the UNP does not give him nominations he is prepared to contest as an independent MP.

He says he will contest the election and if the public reject him he will go back to focus on his acting career. (Colombo Gazette)
