Along with a cabinet reshuffle, a new government will be formed on April 06 after defeating the joint opposition’s no-confidence motion against prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe tonight (04), a senior UNP minister told Sri Lanka Mirror.

Agreement was reached at a meeting with the president yesterday that the PM and senior ministers of the party will meet him tomorrow morning, said the minister.

Minister Harin Fernando says no one in the government who supports the no-confidence motion will be given ministerial positions, and that the government will continue until 2020 with the SLFP ministers who will be backing the government.

Certain parties in the opposition too, are supporting this, he said.
