A special UNP working committee meeting will be held at Temple Trees on the 19th.

A senior party member told the Hiru news team that there will be extensive discussions regarding the presidential candidate and the new alliance.

According to party sources, it has been proposed that the parliamentary group should be convened on the same day.

Meanwhile, a special meeting of the party leaders of the United National Front will be held tomorrow. Minister Mano Ganeshan stated that the proposals regarding the signing of the new alliance and the candidature of the presidential candidate will be studied.

However, the Minister stated that it has been agreed to field a UNP candidate for the next presidential election.

Earlier, a group of UNP back benchers met the Prime Minister and requested a joint meeting of the party parliamentarians and the working committee to decide on the presidential candidate.

He requested the party's working committee and the working committee to meet to decide the presidential candidate.

A national newspaper has reported that they are also placing their signatures to a proposal requesting a secret ballot to select the presidential candidate.

However, several UNP MPs told us that the signatures obtained were not for a secret ballot but to request the Leadership to convene a joint meeting of the working committee and party parliamentarians.

Several meetings of UNP seniors have been held over the past two days.

It is reported that the State and the deputy minister of parliament and the backbenchers have met on several occasions and discussed this issue.
