43 cabinet ministers of the national government have already been sworn-in in their new portfolios. 

At the same time, 11 ministers who were sworn in today are from the SLFP. 

Addressing the swearing in ceremony, the president said that 15 SLFP MPs are receiving cabinet ministerial portfolios.

The parliament approved yesterday to appoint 48 cabinet ministers in the national government. 

As President Maithripala Sirisena also holds a ministerial portfolio, 4 more SLFP MPs will be sworn in as cabinet ministers in the next few days.

 

Meanwhile, two UPFA MPs out of the 7 that were appointed to parliament through the national list received cabinet portfolios despite their election defeat. 

They are S.B. Dissanayake and Mahinda Samarasinghe.

However, Vijith Vijithamuni Soyza, Lakshman Yapa Abeywardana, M.L.A.M. Hisbullah and Angajan Ramanadan did not receive cabinet portfolios.
