If positions are given over fear of media institutions, it is undemocratic as well as an action which cannot be allowed, UNP MP Wijedasa Rajapaksa has said.

He was speaking to the 'Ravaya' newspaper over the UNP leader stating that the deputy leadership should be given to Sajith Premadasa, at the recently held 68th anniversary event of the party in Passara.

Noting that the UNP leader had only stated that the post of deputy leader would be given priority, MP Rajapaksha has said that there is a rising concern within the party that this statement too, was made over the fear of two certain print and digital media institutions.

As a contract of the government, two certain print and digital media institutions is attempting to create a view within the society with regard to who should receive the UNP deputy leadership, MP Rajapaksha has said.

Though the UNP leader has aired his recommendation, it is the Working Committee that has the final call, he added.

Upon speaking to UNP MP Ravi Karunanayake with regard to the internal situation of the party over preparations to hand over the deputy leadership to Sajith Premadasa, the MP said he would talk on this regard after Sep. 20.
