‘I wish you all the best as you navigate these troubled times’ – MR to new PM Wickremesinghe


Former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa congratulated newly appointed Premiere Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Taking to Twitter, Rajapaksa wished Wickremesinghe ‘all the best’, as he ‘navigates through’ the ongoing crisis.

Wickremesinghe was sworn in as the 26th Prime Minister of Sri Lanka before President Gotabaya Rajapaksa a short while ago.

Earlier this week (09), Rajapaksa stepped down from office, after several violent protests broke out across the country, when pro-government supporters brutally attacked dozens of peaceful anti-government protesters at Temple Trees and Galle Face.
