News ministerial faces expected

The Prime Minister has focussed his attention on appointing the young MPs who had won their seats and received the respect of the people, as Deputy Ministers.

Accordingly, he is also said to be planning on removing from their ministerial posts, the party organisers who had been appointed to parliament through the national list, but had failed to ensure victory in their respective electorates and have failed in parliament.

It is also reported that the Prime Minister had told his friends that he intends to give Thilanga Sumathipala a ministerial position despite his conspiracy to establish a new government.

However, UNP sources said some of the other ministers who were involved with the struggle to topple the government, would lose their ministerial posts.
