UNP MP Ranjan Ramanayake has been appointed Deputy Minister of Social Services Welfare and Livestock Development a short while ago.

The Parliamentarian was one of the most vocal critics of the previous regime regarding alleged corruption, but was not appointed in the initial list of appointments.

Meanwhile a Cabinet Minister, a State Minister and three Deputy Ministers were sworn in by President Maithripala Sirisena at the Presidential Secretariat.

The new appointments are: Muslim Religious Affairs Minister Abdul Halim Mohammed Hazim; Mohamed Thumbi Hassan Ali as State Minister of Health; Wasantha Aluwihare as Deputy Minister of Mahaweli Development and Environment, Amir Ali Sahabdeen as Deputy Minister of Housing and Samurdhi Development and Mohammad Shariff Thoufeek as Deputy Minister of Internal Transport.

    Breach of promise at the outset. They promised a cabinet of 25. What are they doing now?

    And all the cows, bulls and calves in Sri Lanka were overjoyed and thanked the president and prime-minister for appointing one of their own kind as the Deputy Minister of Livestock.

    This is the bitter truth of SL politics. Either you like it or not have to satisfy supporters first not people who vote.
