Marapana declines lotteries! Featured

The vacancy for the post of Foreign Minister created by the resignation of Ravi Karunanayake, is to be filled by Tilak Marapana, according to government sources.

However, although Marapana has agreed to taking over the post of Foreign Minister, he has refused to take over the National Lotteries Board and Development Lotteries as it is irrelevant to his ministry.

Hence, the National Lotteries Board and Development Lotteries is expected to be handed over to the Finance Ministry.

The Chairman of the Development Lotteries Board is former Foreign Minister Ravi Karunanayake’s brother-in-law, Romesh Jayawardena.

Similarly, the Chairman of the National Lotteries Board, Shermila Perera is also a close friend of Karunanayake.
