Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe says that the UNP will contest under the elephant symbol at any future election weather it’s a general or a presidential one.

Party members were informed of this at a parliamentary group meeting held at the parliament complex today.

The opposition Leader also said that a final decision on how to contest a general or presidential election has not been taken yet as the government has not made any announcement with regard to holding a national election.

Meanwhile the United Bhikku Front’s Patron Venerable Girambe Ananda Thera addressing journalists in Colombo today said a common candidate is more viable to contest the next presidential election.

The UNP parliament group meeting drew its attention to the contradictory between the UNP decision and its affiliated United Bhikku Front Patron Venerable Girambe Ananda Thera’s statement and Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said the United Bhikku Front is one such affiliated organization, therefore, they can express their own proposal.
