It is reported that the Minister of Mass Media and Information Nalaka Godahewa has submitted his resignation letter to President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and the President has rejected it.
He had written a letter to the President two days ago stating that the entire Cabinet, including Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, should resign and form a stable government representing all parties in Parliament, and that he would resign as a precedent, but the President refused to accept the letter. However, Godahewa stated that he had decided to continue as the Minister of Mass Media and Information as the President had refused to accept the letter.
Nalaka Godahewa stated this addressing a media briefing held yesterday (22).
It was first revealed in Parliament yesterday that the Minister of Mass Media and Information Nalaka Godahewa had sent his resignation letter.
