Ranil says “I am still the PM”

“I am still the PM” says UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe defiantly after being sacked by President Maithripala earlier today. Speaking to media unit News1st he says he retains the position of PM and hits back saying the swearing in was unconstitutional.

Mr. Wickremesinghe said he will show majority in Parliament soon.

President Maithripala Sirisena on Friday (Oct 26) sacked his Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and appointed former president Mahinda Rajapakse as the new premier, the president’s office said.
