More SLFP MPs to receive ministries in Ranil-led government

Despite the willingness to support the new Ranil Wickremesinghe-led government, the Sri Lanka Freedom Party’s (SLFP) made it clear that it will be accepting any ministries or titles in the new administration.

However, among the recent Cabinet appointments was SLFP MP Nimal Siripala De Silva, who avoided the Party’s standpoint and accepted a ministerial position in the Ranil-led regime.

Reportedly, more SLFP MPs are to be sworn in as ministers in the government going against the Party’s decision. Accordingly, MPs Mahinda Amaraweera, Duminda Dissanayake, Lasantha Alagiyawanna, Jagath Pushpakumara and Chamara Sampath Dasanayake are prearing to directly support the Ranil-led regime, in breach of the Party’s viewpoint.

Mahinda Amaraweera is believed to be given a Cabinet Ministry and the other four, state ministries, according to sources.
