President Maithripala Sirisena says as a responsible Head of State he would not allow the government to be weakened for any reason.

The President said this while addressing the heads of media institutions at the President’s House in Colombo this morning (Apr. 06).

He also said that a complete Cabinet reshuffle including changing the institutions coming under the Ministries will be made soon.

President Sirisena said that a committee would be appointed with the members of both parties to come up with suggestions before the Cabinet reshuffle.

He also said that the Local government election Act should be amended as soon as possible.

He pointed out that having over 8,000 councillors is not a proper situation for a country like Sri Lanka and added that the number needed to be reduced by half.

The President also rejected certain reports on the tax amendments came into effect earlier this week.
