The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) hopes that a United National Party (UNP) sans Ranil Wickremesinghe as its Leader would look into an alliance.
“In the eventuality that Ranil Wickremesinghe is no longer Leader, we hope that some mutual understanding can be reached with the SJB,” SJB Youth Wing Chairman Mayantha Dissanayake told The Morning.
He added the UNP had not responded despite unofficial talks.
“There have been unofficial discussions but their party leadership doesn’t want to engage.”
On Monday (14), Ruwan Wijewardene was voted in as the new Deputy Leader of the UNP and possible successor to its leadership.
The position was formerly held by current SJB Leader Sajith Premadasa.
