Arundika Apologizes: President Considers Reappointing Him To New Position

President Maithripala Sirisena is considering appointing former Deputy Minister of Tourism Development and Christian Affairs Puttalam district MP Arundika Fernando to a new ministerial position after he apologized to the President yesterday.

His apology comes a day after President Sirisena sacked him from his position using executive powers vested in him in Section 46. 3 (a) of the Constitution, for making statements in support of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The former Deputy Minister had met with President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday for a private meeting, the details of which were not made known to the media.
