President to take key decisions over next few weeks

President Maithripala Sirisena is to take some key decisions over next few weeks, State Minister Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena said today.

He said that the Government needs to address several crucial issues over the next two years, including issues related to the economy.

“As a result I can tell you the President will take key political decisions and decisions related to the economy,” he said.

He said that there are some shortcomings in the economy which need to be addressed.

Yapa said that the decisions to be taken by the President might be seen as positive by some while others may feel sour.

He said the President has a responsibility towards addressing key issues and taking the country forward.

The Minister said the political decisions to be taken by the President will ensure political stability in the country as well as the stability of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

Asked if there will be changes in the cabinet, Yapa said that he could not comment on that.


  1. MS has no knowledge of ABC of current economic in crisis

    How can he addressed and find solution for ills of Economy?

    We having reasonable doubt about that MS is
    capable for find solution that ?

  2. What short coming on economy is this Anura Priyadarshana Yapa talking here the President is going to address?
    President himself is at sea when it comes to Economics.
    Only thing the President can handle or has any knowledge is Paddy Cultivation and that too has failed because when you lie to the masses to come to power with it comes a curse.
    That curse is the drought we are experiencing.

    Its better if he remains in Russia..

  3. Mr President have you become a Fake person since you took office. You have been more interested in promoting the SLFP than ruling the country as promised in your campaign. You signed the nomination papers of discredited candidates for the election and paying dearly for the mistake.
    What are achievements as President to date that the people should shower their love and gratitude.
    The civil services are run by a bunch of crooks with the crooked ministers. Are you blind not to see this since you came to power.
    Blessing to you and your crooked gang of thieves.
