21 of the 38 members of the Northern Provincial Council have written to the Northern Province’s governor, requesting him to remove C. V. Wigneswaran from the position of Chief Minister, claiming that he no longer enjoys the confidence and support of the Council.
The Council awaits a decision by the governor, Reginald Cooray.
The Chief Minister has been left in a precarious position following investigations into corruption by NPC ministers and criticism on the CM’s handling of the allegations.
After ministers Aingaranesan and Gurukularasa were found guilty of corruption, the Chief Minister requested they hand in their resignations by tomorrow.
