President Maithripala Sirisena said that delays at the Prime Minister's office and the Ministry of Finance had caused the holdup in appointing Chairmen and Boards of Directors to state Corporations and Boards.

The President stressed that there was no delay on the part of his office and said that the names of the appointees to Corporations and Boards would be approved once the relevant Ministers send the names to the President’s Office.

He said, it has been reported that due to the non-appointment of Chairmen and Boards of Directors to State Banks, their activities were adversely affected and those who are responsible for such lapse are the Prime Minister’s Office and the Minister of Finance.

The reason for such a delay is the conflict between the Premier and the Finance Minister, according to him. In spite several weeks elapsing after appointing ministers, the reason for the delay in appointing corporation chairmen is an internal conflict in the government. (Ajantha Kumara Agalakada)

    I'ts not my fault, it's his/their fault. This President is never at fault.

    Now this joker is blaming the ministers for everything. Hasn't he got a backbone to be firm.

    This prez started attacking the PM from weeks after being elected when he appointed that adviser Shiral Lakthilaka and kept blaming RW ( I dis like him after the way he handled the bond scam, that is a different issue). i.e. So when will the UNP start attacking the Prez because the Prez is such a untrustworty person?

    People are sick and tired of this President who never speaks the truth.Nobody believes him or trusts him.He has virtually singlehandedly ruined our country's reputation and future development just because of his greed for power.
