Asking a wings-clipped Finance Minister to fly is a classic repeat of ‘Dunna Dunugamuwe’ 
An unorthodox and illogical functional allocation

Monday, 12 June 2017

logoPresident Maithripala Sirisena has issued the Extraordinary Gazette Notification dated 7 June 2017 allocating functions among the newly sworn-in Ministers a week ago. In this notification too, the Central Bank and state banks have not been returned to their legitimate home, the Ministry of Finance. Hence, the Central Bank will continue to be under the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the state banks under the Ministry of State Enterprise Development.
