BREAKING: Dhammika Perera takes oaths as an MP


Business tycoon Dhammika Perera was sworn in as a Member of Parliament before Parliament Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena a short while ago (22).

Perera was appointed through the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) National List, following former Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa’s resignation.

Earlier this month, several petitioners including the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) filed FR applications challenging Perera’s appointment, all of which were dismissed the Supreme Court yesterday (21).
