Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam says that Cabinet will be reshuffled before the Sinhala and Tamil New Year.

He said already 2 Committees have been appointed to discuss the changes.

Speaking at a press briefing convened in Colombo today (Apr. 08), the Minister said that the decision was made at a discussion between the President and the Prime Minister last night.

The Premier along with several other Ministers from the UNP met President Maithripala Sirisena at the President’s Official Residence last night.

The aim of the meeting was to discuss the future of the national government after 6 Cabinet Ministers of the SLFP voted for the 'no-confidence motion'.

Ministers Mangala Samaraweera, Malik Samarawickrama, Vajira Abeywardena, Kabir Hashim and Akila Viraj Kariyawasam had also taken part in the discussion.

It is reported that the President has informed the Premier and the Ministers that the necessary decisions will be made following discussions with the Central Working Committee of the SLFP.

This was the second discussion held between the President and the Prime Minister subsequent to the 'no-confidence motion'.
