State Minister Kanchana Wijesekera says Minister Ali Sabry’s request to resign from the post of the Minister of Finance was rejected by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Speaking in reply to a statement made by MP Harsha de Silva, the State Minster said Minister Ali Sabry will continue to function in the post of Finance Minister.
MP de Silva said the peoples trust in the governance structure has been lost due to failed policies of the government.
Therefore the Parliamentarian questioned how the country could move forward during an economic crisis.
MP Harsha de Silva said Sri Lanka having an individual in the post of Finance Minister in itself is a confidence boost.
