Police to Field Marshal!

The United National Party has come to an agreement to make significant changes in the new cabinet reshuffle, and the President had given his approval to the Prime Minister to appoint Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka as the new Law and Order Minister, according to a senior UNP member.

This minister said that over the past several days there had been disagreements between the President and prime Minister but now it has been resolved.
He also noted that certain UNP ministers had been making requests to hand over certain ministries to them.

According to the Constitution, there is provision to maintain 45 non-cabinet deputy ministers and accordingly it is said that these deputy ministerial vacancies will be filled by the youth ministers.
