The United National Party has decided to appoint new electoral organizers for the Mahara and Katana areas.
Although leader of the UNP Ranil Wickremasinghe appointed Karu Jayasuriya to the Mahara electorate previously, he turned down the appointment.
UNP sources indicate that a lawyer is to be appointed to the currently vacant Mahara Organizers post.
The UNP did not appoint an organizer for the Katana electorate this year but sources indicate that a relative of former Minister Jeyaraj Fernandopulle is to be appointed.
The Opposition Leader who is currently on tour in India will make the appointments upon his arrival back in Sri Lanka.
