Kandy District UPFA MP Lohan Ratwatte, who was named City Planning and Water Supply Minister of the Joint Opposition’s shadow cabinet, has requested his name be removed from the list.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, the MP said he was neither aware of the appointment of a shadow cabinet nor who made the appointments.

“I requested MP Dullas Alahapperuma (the national organizer) to remove my name from the list. I have no idea who made the appointments. This is a joke. As the joint opposition, this is not what we should be doing. A shadow cabinet is not the need of the hour,” he said.

However, he said appointing monitoring MPs to each ministry was more appropriate. “I think former President Mahinda Rajapaksa had also expressed similar sentiments regarding the shadow cabinet,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Is it not illegal appointing a shadow cabinet while the country is being ruled by democratically elected government?

    Apparently, appointing a "shadow cabinet" comprising JO MPs, is a "jilmart" of the Yahapalana govt. There is no authenticity in this move.

    Yes, MR has also said something similar. This is a joke by government. Is Dulles supporting his good friend MS?

    banana republic Friday, 08 July 2016 01:06 PM

    First they ruined the economy as cabinet members of government and now want to ruin the country as cabinet members of JO. Why are these people not being put behind bars.

    Robert Friday, 08 July 2016 01:14 PM

    Very true. There will be no shadow if there is no light.
