After the 19th amendment to the Constitution, the President is not permitted to reshuffle the Cabinet, the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) stresses.
PHU leader Udaya Gammanpila made the observation while speaking to reporters at a press conference held in Colombo on Monday.
“The SLFPers do not know that President is no longer capable of reshuffling the Cabinet,” he added.
Gammanpila pointed out the President will have to appoint ministers for ministries in future only after considering the recommendation of the Prime Minister.
Gammanpila also went on to say several key SLFP ministers and even the President suffer without the privilege to make amendments to the Cabinet. “With this, dreams of some SLFP ministers to take over the ministerial posts of the UNPers will shatter,” he added.
