Peshala Jayaratne Becomes North Central Province Chief Minister

President Maithripala Sirisena today (28) appointed UPFA Provincial Councilor Peshala Jayaratne as the Chief Minister of North Central Province.

Peshala Jayaratne was among the first group who crossed over to the common opposition prior to the Presidential Election.

He was the former Minister of Co-operative, Trade and Food, Industries, Textiles Industries and Rural Development, Tourism and Housing of the North Central Province.

After Jayaratne extended his support to common candidate Maithripala Sirisena, he was stripped of all titles and Ministerial positions by the former government.
