Hello, Everyone Today I am going to share some exciting facts on the Six Sri
Lankan ministers quit President Maithripala Sirisena who is letting the unity
government.

Six ministers of President Maithripala Sirisena-led unity government in Sri
Lanka resigned today, days after they voting against Prime Minister Ranil
Wickremesinghe in the no-trust motion moved by the Joint Opposition.

The ministers, who were from the Sirisena-led ruling Sri Lanka Freedom Party
which is a coalition partner in the unity government with the Wickremesinghe-
led United National Party, sent their resignation to the President late last night.

“We have informed the President that we were leaving the government as of
midnight yesterday,” Disaster Management Minister Anura Priyadarshana
Yapa says.

The other ministers who have resigned include Sports Minister Dayasiri
Jayasekara, Minister of Social Empowerment and Welfare S B Dissanayake,
Labour Minister John Seneviratne, Minister of Science, Technology and
Research Susil Premajayantha and Minister of Skills Development and
Vocational Training Chandima Weerakkody.

Yapa and the five ministers had voted against Wickremesinghe in the last
week’s no trust motion brought by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa-led
Joint Opposition, following which the UNP members had been demanding
their ouster from the government.

Ten other state and deputy ministers had also voted against the premier.

Yapa says they were aware that it was not ethical for them to remain in the
Cabinet after voting against the PM. “We will now act as SLFP members; we
will not be joining the JO. Our duty will be to promote the SLFP from now on”,
he is adding.

The other SLFP ministers, who had remained absent from the House during
the no-confidence motion, will stay on the government, sources say.

The country has to plunge into a political crisis after the victory of Rajapaksa’s
newly forming party in elections to 10 local councils in February. It is won two-
thirds of the 340 council seats, trouncing the parties headed by Sirisena and
Wickremesinghe.

Sirisena immediately urged the resignation of Wickremesinghe, but he stood
ground. The premier also was faced with resignation calls by at least two of
his party ministers.

With strong backing from Tamil and Muslim minority parties, including some
allies of Sirisena, Wickremesinghe romping home dealing political blows on
both Sirisena and Rajapaksa.

The resignation of the minister has now triggered a Cabinet reshuffle, officials
say.

So, these are the points to describing on the Six Sri Lankan ministers quit
President Maithripala Sirisena who is letting the unity government.
