The Leader of the House Dinesh Gunawardena is tipped to be appointed as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka under the Presidency of Ranil Wickremesinghe.
I’m guessing that @RW_UNP will choose Dinesh Gunawardana as PM. But if @RW_UNP is a honest gentleman working towards the betterment of the country, he should choose Dallas Alahappuruma or @sajithpremadasa as PM #SriLanka #lka #SriLankaProtests #SriLankaEconomicCrisis #Aragalaya
