Mahinda to be invited to become PM? Featured

Noting that the government has suffered a humiliating defeat at the 2018 LG polls, several advisors of President Maithripala Sirisena have urged him to accept the public mandate and invite Mahinda Rajapaksa to be Prime minister, political sources say.

The advisors have allegedly cited that the present government including PM Ranil Wickremesinghe had no ethical right to remain in power, when considering election results.

'Sri Lanka Mirror' learns that several ministers have resolved to meet the president tomorrow and resign from their ministerial portfolios.
