Ministries Of Kiriella And Kabir Hashim To Be Swapped: Fonseka To Become Law And Order Minister

Higher Education and Highways Minister Lakshman Kiriella is likely to get the State Enterprise Development Ministry held by UNP General Secretary Kabir Hashim, top government sources said. 
 
Hashim, who held the ministry for over two years, is tipped to get the Highways Ministry at the proposed Cabinet reshuffle. 
 
It is also learnt that Finance and Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera will lose a number of institutions held by him.
 
Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka is tipped to be the new Law and Order - a position previously held by Minister Sagala Ratnayaka. 
 
Although the reshuffle was initially scheduled to take place yesterday (21) it has been postponed due to differences of opinion between the UNP and the SLFP over a few portfolios. 
 
When asked about the matter yesterday, Special Projects Minister Dr. Sarath Amunugama, who is tipped to receive a new position at the reshuffle, said only astrologers knew about the date of the reshuffle.
