Former minister Navin Dissanayake is due to be sworn-in as governor of the Sabaragamuwa province in the coming week.
He will succeed Tikiri Kobbekaduwa, who resigned yesterday (10).
Presidential advisor Ruwan Wijewardena, speaking to journalists in Gampaha, said Dissanayake’s appointment will most likely take place on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Palitha Range Bandara, the UNP’s general secretary, is to be appointed governor of the central province after the president undertakes a tour of Europe, according to Presidential Secretariat sources.
