Asked by reporters about Senanayake accepting a Ministerial post in the new cabinet, Premadasa said he was very disappointed.
Vasantha Senanayake took oaths today as the Minister of Tourism and Wildlife.
Speaking to reporters at Temple Trees yesterday Senanayake said he will only support a UNP Prime Minister.
Senanayake said that he had some concerns over the direction the UNP is heading.
However he said that in Parliament he will only support the Prime Minister nominated by the UNP, whoever that may be. (Colombo Gazette)
