Several state ministerial appointments soon

Several state ministerial posts are to be awarded in the near future, according to political sources.

The relevant state ministerial posts are to be awarded to UNP-MPs.

Meanwhile, it was reported that the President had agreed to grant the Law and Order Ministry to Minister Ranjith Maddumabandara.

Last year when the UNF government was toppled the President brought the police under the Defence Ministry.

However, the UNF stated that it is illegal for the President to hold the Police Department under his ministry under the 19th Amendment and states that the Police should be assigned under the Law and Order Ministry.

It is also reported that a controversial UNP-MP is also scheduled to receive a state ministerial post.
