Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has informed the UNF parliamentary group that the Cabinet will have to be limited to 30 ministers and that some will have to voluntarily give up aspirations of holding posts.

This was mentioned by MP Mano Ganesan on his twitter message. "Myself and Rishard Bathiudeen will stay out of the cabinet if Mr. Wickremesinghe so wished," he said. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriiwardana)

    Good, other perks should also be limited. Vehicle and security show at the expense of the poor man should be pruned. Please do something for the benefit of the masses than for yourselves.

    concern Tuesday, 18 December 2018 08:52 PM

    Also limit your foreign trips.

    Chryshan K Tuesday, 18 December 2018 08:18 PM

    Pathy Tuesday, 18 December 2018 08:47 PM

    You told the same 2015 then gradiually count got increased it is going to be the same again. Only people are being fooled always

    Sanoj Wednesday, 19 December 2018 11:57 AM

    That was before the 19th amendment. Now his hands are tied

    Hope it will continue and will not increase the cabinet later. Would have been great if RW can make a public statement of his plans of developing the country in the future and at least to accept his faults with CB fraud and how he would make sure that similar things will not happen in the future.

    elmi Wednesday, 19 December 2018 08:12 AM

    what do you mean "simillar things not to occur in future"? The crooks in the biggest heist should be tried

    Perumal Wednesday, 19 December 2018 12:58 PM

    Elmi, CB Fraud has been coming down since 2007 throughout Chandrika's, Ranil's and Mahinda's rules

    Hon Premier don't ask for volunteers. Act like a leader and appoint people to the suitable ministerial position and convince the rest. If not volunteer your PM post to someone as it says including PM and President limited to 30.

    Unchikun Wednesday, 19 December 2018 08:46 AM

    When I was a kid we had only 14 minister and there was no executive president. Sri Lanka was fine or as a matter of fact, better than today.

    Qualifications Wednesday, 19 December 2018 08:47 AM

    Let Mps with higher education qualifications (Not purely MP typenlawyers as envsagd by Sirama Bandaranayake) and ONLY those elected by the people be appointed.

    Dperera Wednesday, 19 December 2018 08:51 AM

    Such a good idea. Appoint only the honest and talented MP's as ministers.(If you can find any)

    Katie Wednesday, 19 December 2018 12:05 PM

    Ministers who held positions over the age of 60 should step down and give way for the younger generation. change the Education minister, he finds it difficult to communicate in english.

    Chris Wednesday, 19 December 2018 01:03 PM

    Appoint only capable and corruption free members.By this you will win the hearts of the people and will win the next elections.Also limit all the perks given to the ministers.Take some drastic austerity measures to show the people that you are genuine in taking the country forward with a healthy economy which will lighten the burden of the people

    Mohideen Wednesday, 19 December 2018 01:28 PM

    Der Prime Minister,don't talk please just do it, and schow to publictake Germany as example the cabinet with 16 Ministers.

    Samson Wednesday, 19 December 2018 01:45 PM

    Those in business should not hold portfolios. When you appoint RK to Finance you will see the UNP demise at the end of the tunnel.

    samson Wednesday, 19 December 2018 01:57 PM

    Only honest man I can think is RK, who cannot remember and who does not know. Will do a job in Finance and see to the end of UNP at the next election.

    aweejnas Wednesday, 19 December 2018 02:15 PM

    We all have to tr for Cabinet out of MPs, like in US and France; MPs running behind Posts is the biggest this hour

    jaypee Wednesday, 19 December 2018 03:18 PM

    Remember next Elections voters should support and vote for the guys who were not craving for a Ministerial portfolio.
