Three MPs of the joint opposition are to be given deputy ministerial portfolios after May Day, weekend newspapers reported.

The government has reported success in talks with these MPs, and the president has now decided to reshuffle the cabinet.

Meanwhile, minister Chandima Weerakkody says several MPs of the JO will be at the SLFP May Day rally at Getambe.
