Basil becomes MP on July 06, tipped to be appointed Minister of economic affairs Featured

Bail Rajapaksa will be sworn in as a member of parliament on July 06, political sources say. After being sworn in as an MP, sources say Bail Rajapaksa would be appointed as the Minister in charge of Economic Affairs.
Bail arrived in the country on Thursday after a month-long private visit to the United States.

Sources say Basil would enter the parliament through the national list. It is reliably understood that the national list MP Prof. Ranjith Bandara would resign from his post to pave the way for Basil Rajapaksa to become a MP.
Sources say, the increased fuel prices would come down by Rs 5 to 7 just after Basil Rajapaksa is sworn in as the minister of economic affairs.
Meanwhile, sources say there is a rumour that another national list MP Jayantha Ketagoda is also going to resign from parliament to create the pathway for Yoshitha Rajapaksa to enter parliament.
