UNP general secretary Tissa Attanayake said the committee would meet for the first time on May 29 to start the drafting of the constitution.
He said that all ethnic communities would be consulted and views of other parties would also be taken in to account when drafting the new constitution.
The party expects to present the draft constitution at the future elections to seek a mandate to enact it, UNP sources said.
