Jan 08, Colombo: The Working Committee of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) will meet today to take several crucial decisions, party sources say.

UNP leaders are expected to take a decision about the vacant positions of the party's newly established leadership council. The party will reportedly discuss the replacements for the appointed members of the council, MPs Sajith Premadasa and Thalatha Gunasekara. They have rejected to assume the positions in the nine-member leadership council.

UNP working committee is also expected to take a decision regarding the Chairman position which is vacant since the resignation of Gamini Jayawickrama Perera. Kegalle district MP Kabir Hashim is expected to be appointed as the UNP Chairman.

The party will also take a decision regarding the Chief Minister candidates at the upcoming elections for the Western and Southern Provincial Council elections, party sources say.

The national nomination board to select the candidates for the upcoming Provincial Council election is also to be appointed at this meeting.
