President Gotabaya Rajapaksa on Thursday (14) emailed his resignation letter to the Parliamentary Speaker.
Meanwhile, Maldives Speaker and former President Mohamed Nasheed reaffirmed Gotabaya’s resignation.
🇱🇰 President GR has resigned. I hope Sri Lanka can now move forward. I believe the President would not have resigned if he were still in Sri Lanka, and fearful of losing his life. I commend the thoughtful actions of the Govt of Maldives. My best wishes to the people of Sri Lanka.
