COLOMBO, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- Months long internal crisis in the main opposition United National Party (UNP) is bound to end this week, a senior party official said Thursday.
"We will settle the whole issue by the end of this week", Tissa Attanayake, the general secretary told reporters.
"We have had a series of long discussions and consultations. All issues will be settled without any discrimination to any individual", Attanayake stressed.
In May following the defeat of the party in April parliamentary election, the UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe appointed a six-member reform committee to recommend reforms to revive the party.
Attanayake said the recommendations for a new party constitution has now been accepted.
The UNP leader Wickrenesinghe has come under severe pressure to step down due to his inability to win major elections since the party lost power in 1994.
