Akila Viraj to tender resignation to solve ongoing feud

United National Party (UNP) General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam has reportedly offered to resign from his post in a bid to solve the ongoing issues within the UNP.

Kariyawasam has informed UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe about his willingness to step down.

However, he has not submitted his resignation as yet.

Meanwhile, Wickremesinghe has said that he will attempt to resolve issues with UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa in order to prevent a split in the UNP and to ensure the UNP contests the upcoming election as a united front.
