President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had come to an agreement about the time for a Cabinet reshuffle, United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) General Secretary Mahinda Amaraweera said.

While addressing at the weekly SLFP media briefing held yesterday Minister Amaraweera said there would be a definite Cabinet reshuffle.

It would be done at an opportune time by the President. This would be done with a view to expedite the government's forward march, he said.

“During the previous government that came to power in 2010 the Cabinet had been reshuffled within its first year in office. The reshuffle had come within the first three months after a new government came to power in 1994. This is the government which runs more than two years without a cabinet reshuffle,” Minister Amaraweera said.

However, it is good to have a Cabinet reshuffle, he further said. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    It is already too late, the entire public sector has come to a standstill, especially the manufacturing related SOEs as productivity in these organizations cannot achieve the results due to corruption.

    Pack of cards must be reshuffled NOT ministries. In other countries ministers are chosen according to their qualification and experience. For example trade is always handled by an MBA, Industry, highways, electricity by engineers, health by a doctor, agriculture by an agriculture expert, and so on. And they stay in their position for a considerable time to that they can gain experience and do some productive work.
