Ranil informs Speaker to nominate an acceptable PM


Acting President and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has informed the Speaker to nominate a suitable Prime Minister.

Wickremesinghe had informed Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena to nominate a Premier who is acceptable to both the Government and the Opposition, as it has been understood that both the ruling party and the opposition must form an all-party government.

Following a meeting between Prime Minister Wickremesinghe and the Cabinet of Ministers on Monday (11), it was agreed upon that all responsibilities will be handed over as soon as there is an agreement to form an all-party government.
