President Maithripala Sirisena is reported to have refused Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe's request to appoint UNP MP Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka as the Law and Order Minister.

A UNP delegation led by the Prime Minister met the President on Wednesday to make the request.

The President flatly turned down the request saying it would have dire consequences.

Ministers Lakshman Kiriella, Kabir Hashim, and Malik Samarawickrama accompanied the Prime Minister to the meeting.

The UNP urged that Mr. Fonseka, a wartime Army Commander, be appointed the Law and Order Ministry which is currently under the President. (Kelum Bandara)
