Conflict resolved : Ranil remains PM & new Cabinet on Thursday

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had told a group of young MP’s who had gone to meet him this morning (17) that they should understand the predicament faced by President Maithripala Sirisena and remain calm, that Susil Premajantha and SLFP would join the opposition and that the new Cabinet would be sworn in next Thursday.

When the young MP’s had told him that this was an opportune time to attack President Sirisena, Prime Minister Wickremesinghe had calmed them down and advised them to be patient.
