Public Administration and Management Minister Ranjith Madduma Bandara was appointed as the Minister of Law and Order by President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday at his official residence.

The long awaited appointment was made by President Sirisena after Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe held the cabinet portfolio for a brief period following the resignation of Minister Sagala Ratnayaka who held the portfolio.   


A permanent minister for the Law and Order portfolio was not appointed by President Sirisena at the mini cabinet reshuffle on February 25. Prime Minister Wickremesinghe said he would take over the portfolio only for two weeks until a new permanent Minister was appointed as the Minister of Law and Order.
