Wed, Sep 5, 2018, 11:23 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 05, Colombo: Sri Lanka's ruling United National Party (UNP) marks the 72nd anniversary of the party tomorrow and a religious ceremony will be held at the party headquarters Sirikotha under the patronage of party leader and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Several UNP Parliamentarians meanwhile visited the Sirikotha today to make inquiries on the arrangements.

UNP General Secretary Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said that all arrangements have been finalized to hold the 72nd Anniversary of the United National Party at the Sirikotha Head Office.

The function will begin at 9.30 am under the patronage of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe amid the presence of senior party, members, parliamentarians and invitees.

Minister Kariyawasam said participation of all Executive members and all active party members of the UNP is expected.

The UNP was founded on 6 September 1946 by amalgamating three right-leaning pro-dominion parties from the majority Sinhalese community and minority Tamil and Muslim communities under the leadership of D.S. Senanayake, who became the island's first Prime Minister, in a bid to gain independence from the British rule.
