May 25, 2022 1:47:37 AM - economynext.com

ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was sworn is Minister  of Finance, Economic Stability and National Policies Wednesday (25) morning before President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

The finance portfolio has been vacant since the resignation of former Finance Minister Ali Sabry and the appointment of Wickremesinghe as Prime Minister.

On Tuesday (25), co-cabinet spokesman and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekara said President Rajapaksa would be serving as acting finance minister until a replacement was found.

Main opposition Samagi Jana Balavegaya (SJB) MP Harsha de Silva, who had been asked by various quarters to take up the job, had decided against it, claiming that he would only accept the position in an all-party government.
