The appointment of new cabinet ministers delayed!
Political sources say that the appointment of new cabinet ministers has been delayed indefinitely.
The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna has forwarded a list of ministerial posts to President Ranil Wickremesinghe, but the President’s lack of agreement has caused the delay. Sources also said that since the budget was passed with a large number of votes in the budget voting, there is no need to provide new ministerial positions at this time.
Pohottuwa stalwarts who are hoping for ministerial positions have been complaining to Mr. Basil Rajapaksa in this regard, but it was reported that Mr. Basil Rajapaksa has told them that there is nothing he can do about it at the moment because the president has the full power to appoint ministers.
Also, the political sources further stated that the same situation that has arisen regarding the cabinet may also be implemented in relation to the upcoming elections.
