The Sri Lanka Freedom Party Cabinet Ministers who boycotted the previous Cabinet meeting attended this morning’s meeting.
 
They boycotted the Cabinet meeting in line with a decision taken by the party Central Committee on 9th of April.
 
At today’s cabinet meeting, a proposed fuel-pricing mechanism, price hikes in powdered milk, fuel and gas were to be taken for discussion.
 
However, it was reported that no such Cabinet paper was presented today.
 
Following the cabinet meeting, a special discussion began between the President and the SLFP Ministers.
 
Meanwhile, President Maithripala Sirisena said that a new Cabinet will be appointed next week.
 
He added it will not be a reshuffle, but completely a new Cabinet would be named.
 
President Sirisena disclosed these details during an interview with the BBC News Sinhala.
