UNP co-deputy leader Karu Jayasuriya is to contest against Ranil Wickramasinghe for the post of UNP leader.

Jayasuriya said today that he accepted the invitation put forward by some UNP members including UNP co-deputy leader Sajith Premadasa.

Jayasuriya is currently at a meeting at the UNP headquarters in Sirikotha.

Jayasuriya said that he had accepted the invitation extended to come forward to take over the party leadership based on principles.

He told The Sunday Leader that the decision was not based on any personal reasons, but purely on principles.

“I have nothing personal against UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe,” he said.
