The Chief Prelate of the Asgiriya Chapter Most Ven. Galagama Sri Aththadassi Thera requested Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to remove the preferential voting system as it caused turmoil within the country.   Speaking to the PM who visited the Prelate yesterday in Kandy, the Thera said both new and old members of the UNP should come together to make a better party.

“Work for the betterment of all communities and ensure you are patient and mindful of the decisions you make for the country,” the Thera said.


Mr. Wickremesinghe told the Prelate that the UNP was working together with President Maithripala Sirisena but there were some who were attempting to destroy this. “Even the TNA is working with us and there is no problem in parliament. They celebrated Independence Day with us and have also accepted our army who are working in the North,” he said.


Wickremesinghe said the army was now internationally recognised. “We need to be a powerful nation,” he said.
