Feb 14, Colombo: The Leader of Sri Lanka Opposition and the United National Party (UNP) Ranil Wickremasinghe has decided to postpone the appointment of the deputy leaders of the UNP again.

The decision was taken Wednesday when the party seniors met to discuss the issue.

UNP working committee will meet Thursday afternoon but the appointments of the deputy leaders is not likely to take place today, party sources said.

Meanwhile the critics of UNP leadership say that the proposal set forth to appoint four Deputy Leaders is unconstitutional.

According to a report in The Island Wickremasinghe has decided to appoint seniors, Lakshman Kiriella and Kabir Hashim along with Sajith Premadasa as deputy leaders as he could not count on Premadasa to represent or speak on his behalf.

The matter is to be further discussed after the UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake returns from the foreign tour now he is engaged.

Final decision regarding the appointment of the deputy leaders is to take place at the next working committee meeting, sources say.
