UNP to strengthen rank-and-file voices on MoU

[TamilNet, Friday, 03 November 2006, 10:18 GMT]
The main opposition United National Party (UNP) is to hold seminars and discussions at district level to educate the rank and file members on the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with the Sri Lanka Freedom party (SLFP), the main constituent of the ruling United Peoples' Freedom Alliance (UPFA) last month, that gave top priority to solving ethnic conflict, political sources in Colombo said.

Series of seminars and discussions are scheduled to be held on November 11 and 12 in different parts of Sri Lanka. Senior members of the party would be addressing these meetings, according to party officials.

UNP is also planning to adopt a resolution at the party convention scheduled for November 11 in Colombo to get the official approval from the party membership for the MoU.

Meanwhile, Ranil Wickremasinghe, leader of the main opposition United National Party (UNP) addressing leading activists of the party Friday morning at the party headquarters Sri Kotha in Colombo, said: "The main objective of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), government is to find a lasting political solution to the ethnic conflict through negotiations."

He said ethnic conflict should be solved through political solution and not by military means.
