The 76th Anniversary celebration of the United National Party (UNP) will be held at the Sugathadasa Stadium in Colombo at 3 pm today (06) under the theme ‘Let’s build, together’ with the aim of bringing everyone together to rebuild the country.
The ceremony will be held under the leadership of the UNP Leader, President Ranil Wickremesinghe.
This is the first anniversary celebration of the UNP to be held under an Executive President from the party after 28 years. Previously, the party held its anniversary celebrations under a President in 1993.
All the parties representing the parliament as well as other political parties and civil society organisations have been invited to attend the anniversary celebrations apart from UNP members.
This year’s anniversary celebration was organised by a committee headed by UNP Deputy Leader Ruwan Wijewardene.
Meanwhile, religious observances were held yesterday (04) in all constituencies across the island to mark the Anniversary.
