COLOMBO (News 1st); United National Party (UNP) Chairman Vajira Abeywardana declared his party's intention to position Ranil Wickremesinghe for a historic presidential victory in the 2024 elections.
"When 2024 ends, we will turn a new chapter in Sri Lankan history," Abeywardana said, adding that Wickremesinghe would secure "the highest number of votes in recorded history."
