Ravi Resigns

Foreign Affairs Minister Ravi Karunanayake this afternoon publicly resigned from the Cabinet saying he was sacrificing his position to ‘set an example’ and for ‘democracy and good governance.’ Raising the point that he had been advised by his lawyers that there was no reason for him to resign, he said he chose to make the decision in keeping with his ‘moral conscience’ and on behalf of the party and the government. The former Minister said that he was proud to sacrifice his position for good governance and that he would with equal pride take his place among the backbenchers in Parliament, knowing that he had sacrificed his position for the greater good. Extolling the virtues of the ‘Yahapalanaya’ government, the former Minister noted that never before had a sitting Minister been hauled before a commission to testify on his actions – “This is a mark of the good governance government,” the former Minister said.
