Ranil slams media over ‘fake list’, calls for debate

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today slammed the media saying some had reported a ‘fake list’ claiming they were nominated for Ministry portfolios but had not been approved by President Maithripala Sirisena.

He said that some media had claimed that Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) member Wijith Wijayamuni Zoysa was in the list of MPs nominated for Ministerial posts.

The Prime Minister however insisted that Zoysa was not on the list.

Wickremesinghe said that some media were attempting to mislead the public and action must be taken against them.

He called for a debate next month on media which were reporting false information.

The Prime Minister also said that while there were some differences of opinion with the President on the Ministerial appointments, he was confident the issues will be resolved. (Colombo Gazette)
