All ministerial portfolios of Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe have been asked to be removed by the UNP leadership. They have informed President Maithripala Sirisena of the matter.

The UNP issued a communique stating that the UNP Working Committee unanimously agreed to remove Rajapakshe from all cabinet portfolios during a meeting held on Thursday, August 17.

The communique reads that this decision was taken as Wijeyadasa Rajapaksa had continued to violate the collective responsibility of the party and the cabinet.
