Ranil agrees to re-appoint Rosy to UNP WC

UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has agreed to reinstate  only Rosy Senanayake to the UNP Working Committee.

Rosy Senanayake, Ajith P. Perera, Sarath Fonseka and Imtiaz Bakir Marker were removed from the UNP WC recently on the allegation of criticizing the party leadership in public.

Earlier, Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa had stated that he would not attend the UNP WC meetings until these four members were re-appointed.

However, close aides have urged the party leadership to re-appoint Mrs. Senanayake, who has worked closely with Mr. Wickremesinghe in the recent past. Considering these requests, Mr. Wickremesinghe has given his assent to reappoint her as a WC member, Sirikotha sources say.
