Sunny Side Up: RW pushes policy changes

United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe last Friday (3) night had joined the International Democratic Union’s (IDU) online end-of-year meeting.

The UNP Leader had provided a country update and plans for the party going forward.

Speaking at the meeting, Wickremesinghe had said that the arrival of Covid-19 had seen a shift in the public’s attitudes towards politics.

He had suggested that political parties undergo policy changes and adapt to the changing views of the youth, who are disgruntled with the political establishment.

The IDU comprises right-leaning political parties from all over the world, including the Republic Party in the US, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India, and the Conservatives in the UK.
