The Government today dismissed claims that there are moves to appoint Sports Minister Namal Rajapaksa as Prime Minister.

Cabinet co-spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said that such claims are mere “political jargon”.

“If you go by the stories that are being spread, tomorrow you might see that someone else is going to be appointed,” he said in response to a question raised by Daily Mirror at the weekly post Cabinet press conference.

Rambukwella said that such claims should not be taken seriously by the media.

“These are things that just spreads around the country,” he said.

The Media Minister said that unless it is confirmed and authenticated it should not be taken seriously.

There have been reports being spread on social media that Namal Rajapaksa is likely to be appointed as Prime Minister next year or anytime before the next General Elections. (Easwaran Rutnam)

    There is no smoke without a fire. The best thing for the SJB and JVP is to have Normal as the PM.
