Some Senior Police Officers have protested the purported plan to appoint Regional Development Minister Sarath Fonseka as the Law and Order Minister, it is learnt.

The UNP has proposed his name for the Ministerial portfolio.

At Sunday’s Cabinet reshuffle, the subject was assigned to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. However, the UNP said it was a temporary arrangement till a new Minister was appointed.

The Daily Mirror learns that President Maithripala Sirisena had reservations about the appointment of Field Marshall Fonseka as the Law and Order Minister following objections by some senior officers, who held the rank of Deputy Inspector General of Police (IGP). (Kelum Bandara)

    When no senior army officer likes him anymore would any police officers like him? This is just common sense.

    Saman Thursday, 01 March 2018 09:48 AM

    The air is getting thin for MR and corrupt policemen

    People need right individuals in the respective positions to carry out the job,not politicians who merely talk nonsense and unveil name board/signs. Most of the politicians' task has become today to go round the country, criticize some one, placing a foundation stone and waste public money for useless things. At least,people urge president to appoint a suitable person for the position of Police,Law and Order Minister.

    If they oppose SF then he is the best.

    The best rationalization of this whole issue. Good Comment.

    Looking at the comments it is so evident that our colombo based english speaking minority is so naive and childish. You can't have a leader who is disliked by his/her subordinates. Wont work even in a manufacturing line like this.

    This is hilarious, now even Policemen are dictating terms on Cabinet appointments. Who is next in the line?

    SF as minister of Law and Order. Rsnjan as his deputy. via DM Android App

    Wow. What a combination. JO must be shivering in their sarongs

    Haramanis Thursday, 01 March 2018 02:09 PM

    We are all afraid of "white flag" Fonseka

    Gerard Thursday, 01 March 2018 08:32 PM

    won't be surprised if Sirisena concedes and doesn't allow SF to be appointed. MS just says one thing but does another, usually not for the good of the Country, getting rid of Dilrukshi Dias WIckramasinghe, appointing Marini De Livera to NCPA, appointing an astrologer as Governor of CP....

    Those who are in the MS, RW, MR coalition will never like the idea!
