Former Finance minister – Ali Sabry has refused a President’s request to re-take the Finance ministry.
It is reported that Sabry has declined due to pressure from his family members.
Sabry was initially appointed to the post after Basil Rajapaksa resigned from the post of Finance minister but resigned even before 24 hours elapsed.
However, the President had declined to accept his resignation.
Regardless, with Mahinda Rajapaksa resigning on the 09th, the entire cabinet had been dissolved.
