More JO Members Reject Shadow Cabinet

More Joint Opposition parliamentarians have reportedly raised objections to the formation of a shadow cabinet. On Friday Joint Opposition parliamentarian Lohan Ratwatte said he had refused to be part of the shadow cabinet. Two other parliamentarians including Premalal Jayasekara have also refused to join the shadow cabinet.

Meanwhile Joint Opposition member Dullas Alahapperuma said that the shadow cabinet is only a form of a training being given to the opposition parliamentarians.

Former Economic Affairs Minister Basil Rajapaksa is a notable absentee in the shadow cabinet, so is former Foreign Minister, Professor G. L. Peiris.

However, the Joint Opposition says the shadow cabinet includes only members of parliament. (AW)
