Eventhough Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasingha was bombastic for nominating the amount of ministers only 30, it is reported that there are five more additional minister posts to be added for those who cross over from the opposition.
According to the government sources, a parliament proposal would be pending to increase the amount of minister posts from 30 to 35. The constitution limits the number of cabinet ministers as 30 for a single party/non national government. But the UNP is hopeful to encourage more crossovers from the Rajapaksha faction so that the strength inside the parliament strengthened. To slip away the constitutional barrier the UNP working committee hopes to create a broader alliance with supportive parties.
