Gamini Jayawickrama and Thalatha to take over Wijeyadasa’s two ministries

Minister of Sustainable Development and Wildlife Gamini Jayawickrama Perera is expected to be sworn in to the ministerial portfolios left vacant following the removal of Wijeyadasa Rajapakse from the post of Minister of Justice and Buddha Sasana, according to sources.

Perera will be sworn in to his new portfolios before President Maithripala Sirisena today, political sources said.

The UNP leadership had requested the President to remove Wijeyadasa Rajapakse from all his ministerial portfolios on the basis that he had breached the collective responsibility of the Cabinet of Ministers. The Minister of Justice would be Minister Thalatha Athukorala.
