Making Sajith UNP Presidential candidate grave mistake – Range Bandara
By Eunice Ruth
Due to misjudging the people’s opinion, we made the wrong decision of appointing former Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa as the UNP presidential candidate when he was undeserving of such a high position, claimed former Parliamentarian Palitha Range Bandara.
He told a Media briefing on 29 June at Sirikotha, that they regret selecting Premadasa as the candidate for such a high position, when he only deserves a much lower position, such as that of a Mayor.
UNP Kegalle Organiser, Attorney-at-Law Milan Amarakoon claimed that even though the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) currently uses both green and yellow as their Party colour for rallies and other Election campaign activities, during recent Court proceedings, it was revealed that according to SJB-related legislation, the official colour that represents the political alliance is blue. Amarakoon opined that by using a green and yellow colour scheme which is closely associated with the green colour that represents the UNP, the SJB is attempting to deceive the public and gain the votes of individuals who support the UNP. He claimed that the reason the SJB is so focused on remaining in close association with the UNP is because as a Party, the SJB is not confident in their leadership or victory.
