Appointment of State Ministers postponed

The appointment of State Ministers, which was scheduled to take place today, has been postponed.

It has been reported that the new State Ministers are likely to take oaths before President Gotabaya Rajapaksa tomorrow.

On Friday the President appointed a 15 member interim cabinet to operate till the next Parliamentary election.

The election is expected to take place next April after which a full cabinet will be appointed.


  1. None of the Muslim MP’s in parliament who back-stabbed former President Mahinda Rajapaksa in 2015 and joined MY3 and the “Yahapalana” group and traded the Muslim Vote Bank to the “HANSAYA” should be appointed as deputy ministers. “The Muslim Voice” has been very clear that a new represetative Muslim political presence is needed in the New Government and the SLPP camp, loyal to President HE. Gotabaya Rajapaksa and PM Mahinda Rajapaksa. Not even the name of a Muslim SLFP MP who got on the satge of HE. Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the very end of the campaign and addressed only 2 or 3 small gatherings and the elite muslim invitees who had no heart to support HE. Gotabaya’s campaign should be named as a Deputy Minister or to any high position in the new government, Insha Allah. The Muslim Vote Bank has decided to act on it’s own now away from these deceptive and hoodwinking Muslim politicians.
