Muslim Parliamentarians have decided to take oaths as Ministers. This decision has been taken following talks held today.
The Muslim Ministers who gave up their portfolios had talks with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasighe at Temple Trees yesterday. During these talks the Prime Minster requested them to take back their portfolios.

Accordingly they had talks with the Parliamentary Group today. Following these discussions the Parliamentarians have taken a decision to take back their Ministerial portfolios. Certain groups levelled accusations that the inquiries held after the Easter attacks will be influenced by the Muslim Ministers. Thereafter at the request of the Prime Minister they took a decision to give up their portfolios.

Even though they took a decision not to accept their Ministerial portfolios until the inquiries with respect to their accusations are completed, Kabir Hashim and M.H.A. Halim took oaths as Ministers.
