Prime Minister to take oaths in Kelaniya on Sunday

Mahinda Rajapaksa will be sworn in as Sri Lanka’s new Prime Minister on Sunday (09).

Rajapaksa will take oaths at the Kelaniya Rajamaha Viharaya at 08.30 a.m.

His appointment comes after the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna won the Parliamentary election.

Rajapaksa also secured the highest number of preferential votes at the election from the Kurunegala District.

The former President served as Prime Minister of Sri Lanka three times prior to being elected again at the just concluded General Elections. (Colombo Gazette)
