Marapana leading candidate for FM post – Ravi shifting

Foreign Minister Ravi Karunanayake, who is facing allegations regarding the Treasury bond scandal, is said to be packing his belongings at the Foreign Ministry, Sri Lanka Mirror reliably learns.

He is expected to hand in his resignation tomorrow (10).

Although it was earlier anticipated that Sarath Amunugama would be appointed to fill the vacancy after the resignation of Karunanayake, based on the consensus government agreement it should be given to a UNP member. Hence, it is speculated that Tilak Marapana would be appointed to fill this vacancy.

However, Karunanayake is considered as a prominent force that contributed immensely to topple the Rajapaksa regime.
