Sri Lanka: Rajapaksa to resign from the post of PM


In Sri Lanka, Mahinda Rajapaksa has decided to resign from the post of Prime minister today paving way for formation of new government under ousted Prime Minister Ranil Wickremsinghe.

His son Namal Rajapksa said the resignation will follow an address to the nation and has been done to ensure stability of the nation.

He added that Mr. Rajapksa party will work with others under a broad coalition led by President Maithripala Sirsiena.

Earlier, Supreme Court had refused to vacate interim order of lower court restraining Rajapaksa and his cabinet from functioning.

A Presidential advisor had confirmed earlier in the day that Mr. Wickremsinghe will be appointed Prime minister by Monday and President has reportedly agreed for it.

The Sri Lanka crisis began on October 26 when President appointed Mahinda Rajapaksa as prime minister replacing Mr. Wickremsinghe. Mr. Rajapaksa failed to prove his majority and parliament had passed several motions against his government since last month.
