Swearing in for a minister post by Thissa Aththanayaka takes place today.
Former UNP general secretary MP Tissa Attanayake who joined the Government to support President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the upcoming presidential election is scheduled to take his oaths in a Ministry post today.
UNP General Secretary MP Tissa Attanayake resigned from the general secretary post last Monday and joined the Government to support the President.
With former Health Minister Maitripala Sirisena coming forward as the common candidate, the Health Ministry post remains vacant.
As a result of this health ministry affairs are carried out by an acting Minister.
However Government Sources say that most probably that the health ministry post would be given to Tissa Attanayake.
