Dec 28, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) sources say that the party has decided to appoint two new members to the party's newly established Leadership Council.

They will replace UNP rebels Sajith Premadasa and Thalatha Atukorale who have rejected to assume the positions in the 9-member Council that is being delegated to lead the party.

The naming of the two new members will be taken place at a special meeting of the UNP Leadership Council that is to be held on January 2.
