UNP parliamentarian Harshana Rajakaruna says that if no decision is arrived at regarding the UNP presidential candidate during the next 10 days, they will have to give a red light.

He expressed this view addressing the media subsequent to a dinner hosted by the party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday to commemorate the completion of 4 years for the UNP government.

The dinner which was held at the Temple trees was held on the same day that a rally was organized in Matara requesting for Sajith Premadasa to be nominated as the UNP presidential candidate.

However deputy leader of the UNP Sajith Premadasa as well as Mangala Samaraweera and Dilip Wedaarachchi who participated in the rally in Matara, have not been present at the dinner.

It is reported that majority of ministers and parliamentarians including non-cabinet minister Dr. Harsha de Silva, deputy minister Nalin Bandara were present at the dinner.

Meanwhile representatives from the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress as well as TNA representatives who do not represent the government were also present at the function.

Our political sources said that the presidential election and the current crisis in the party were taken up for discussion during the dinner.
