There is strong speculation that a cabinet reshuffle will take place next week, government sources said.
Several Ministries are expected to change hands during the reshuffle with some former Ministers also likely to be reappointed.
Former Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama is among those tipped to make a comeback into the Cabinet.
A new Prime Minister is also expected to be named as a result of the poor health of current Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne.
There has been speculation over the past several weeks that former Prime Minister Ratnasiri Wickramanayake will be reappointed Prime Minister. (Colombo Gazette)
