Video: Remaining SLFP Ministers seek permission from MS to resign

5 August 2015 09:07 am - 11     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Ministers in the present government, in a letter addressed to the President, have sought permission from the Central Committee (CC) of the SLFP to resign from their respective portfolios, the DM Online learns.

“We assumed duties as Ministers following a decision by the SLFP Central Committee and we do not agree with the sporadic resignations we have witnessed without the approval of the Central Committee. It does not befit a party such as ours to do so without the approval of the CC. Hence we seek the convening of the CC to take a decision on it,” the two page letter said.

The letter further details the ascension of President Sirisena as the leader of the SLFP and calls for the decisions of the party to be taken with consensus. (Sanath Desmond)

    The answer to these Ministers is neither/nor, where they know that they will be no where now after the elections and to be at home only, better no sooner to resign from the government as these people are an headache....

    They are neither fish flesh or fowl. The UPFA voter think they are from UNP govt. so they want to sever links.
