A couple of days after Mahinda Rajapaksa resigned as Sri Lankan Prime Minister, his brother and President Gotabaya Rajapaksa on Wednesday said he will appoint a new Prime Minister and cabinet this week. 

Rajapaksa also added that he is ready to abolish the executive presidency once the country stabilises. “I will appoint a young cabinet without any of the Rajapaksas,” PTI quoted Gotabaya as saying. 

“The Prime Minister of the new government will be awarded the opportunity to produce a new program and take the country forward,” he added.
