Four ministers have been sworn in so far and it is reported that another 16 ministers will be sworn in today.

This time the cabinet will be limited to 20 ministers, including the President and Prime Minister.

It is reported that several members of the Samagi Jana Balawega (SJB) who became independent, several members of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and several members of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) will be sworn in as Ministers.
