CWC to accept ministry relevant to plantation community welfare

[TamilNet, Saturday, 01 May 2010, 16:39 GMT]
The politburo of the Ceylon Workers Congress (CWC), a constituent of the ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance Friday decided to accept a ministry that is relevant to the welfare of the plantation community. Hence the leader of the CWC has been waiting for the response of the President Mahinda Rajapakse who returned from Bhutan Friday, CWC sources told media.

Meanwhile five more cabinet ministers and two deputy ministers are expected to be sworn in on Monday.

Armumgam Thondaman, Professor Tissa Vitarana, Sarath Amunugama, Keheliya Rambukwella and S.B.Dissanayake are tipped to be appointed as ministers.

Mahindananda Aluthgamage and Faizer Mustapha are likely to be appointed deputy minister. They have been elected from the Kandy district and had been waiting for the report that inquired into the election malpractices that led to the re-poll later held only in Nawalapitiya electorate. The report was to be submitted to the Sri Lankan president on Saturday.
