Guess, who wanted the fi­nance port­fo­lio

Sunday Times (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS -

At least two UNPers, one­time min­is­ters, have met Pres­i­dent Maithri­pala Sirisena, ac­cord­ing to sources in the Pres­i­dency.

Whether they were com­ing with mes­sages or “free lancing” is not clear. At least one of them, these sources said, had sought the Fi­nance port­fo­lio, when talks were un­der way for a new gov­ern­ment. How­ever, Pres­i­dent Sirisena had said that was not pos­si­ble but he could be of­fered an­other port­fo­lio.

Ac­cord­ing to these sources, the same per­son had later made the same re­quest from Mahinda Ra­japaksa. The an­swer has been a firm “no.”
