The President’s invitation came hours after cabinet ministers resigned from their respective positions.

In an issued statement, the President’s Media Division said that the current crisis was a result of several economic factors and global developments and Sri Lanka should find solutions within a democratic framework.


The statement reads; “Considering this a national need, the time has come to work together for the sake of all the citizens and the future generations.

The president invites all political parties representing in the parliament to come together to accept ministerial portfolios in order to find solutions to this national crisis.”

On Monday, Sri Lanka’s Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal also tendered his resignation to President Rajapaksa.

Sri Lanka has for days been facing public protests calling on immediate measures to be taken by the government to solve the economic crisis.

Following the unrest and state of affairs, a state of emergency was declared in Sri Lanka on Friday and a 36-hour curfew came into place on the evening the next day which was lifted on Monday morning.
