JO MP to crossover to accept Priyankara’s position! Featured

The position of state minister of provincial councils and local government that fell vacant following the resignation of Priyankara Jayaratne will go to an MP in the joint opposition, says minister John Amaratunga.

The MP in question will leave the JO and join the government, Amaratunga has claimed to the media.
