A special discussion regarding the UNP Deputy Leader post is scheduled to be held today between party leader Ranil Wickremasinghe and party senior leaders.
At this meeting discussion will be held regarding appointing one or several persons for the party deputy leader post.
A number of senior District level UNP leaders too have been invited for this discussion.
However UNP sources say that if the appointment to the deputy leader post continues to be problematic, it is possible that appointment to the party deputy leader post for 2013 is not carried out.
However the Opposition Leader is scheduled to disclose his decision with regard to the Deputy Leader post at the Working Committee meeting that would be held tomorrow after the discussion held today.
