D.M. Jayaratne to take oaths as PM later today

SLFP stalwart D.M. Jayaratne will be appointed prime minister of the new UPFA government, Presidential Secretariat sources said.

Mr. Jayaratne will be sworn in as the country’s 14th premier before president Mahinda Rajapaksa later today (Apr. 21), said the sources. He is one of the most senior members of the SLFP, with a parliamentary career that started way back in 1970.

The 79-year-old Dissanayake Mudiyanselage Jayaratne will be appointed to parliament from the UPFA’s national list and succeeds Rathnasiri Wickremanayake as the prime minister. He was minister of plantation industries in the previous UPFA government
