Rumours which circulated on social media late last evening, announcing that Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa will resign from his Premiership post today are false and there have been no such discussions, Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff, Yoshitha Rajapaksa told Daily Mirror yesterday.  

 A video news clip, quoting Minister Namal Rajapaksa as stating that Prime Minister Rajapaksa will step down from the Premiership post, spread rapidly on WhatsApp last evening, leading to questions if Rajapaksa would resign today.  


However, the said news clip is one from 2018 when Rajapaksa remained in office for 52 days after which he eventually resigned.  Yoshitha said the clip which has resurfaced on WhatsApp was false and there had been no such discussion for the Premier to resign.  “This is nothing but fake news,” he said.
