By Kaosara Olayemi Oladimeji

In response to calls from escalating protests amid economic instability and a severe gasoline scarcity in the South Asian country, Sri Lanka’s cabinet ministers have presented resignation letters.

Following negotiations with Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa on Sunday, government officials reported that all cabinet ministers had handed in their resignation letters, paving the path for all political parties to form a new cabinet.

According to officials, Rajapaksa and the state ministers will continue to serve in their current capacities.

The Prime Minister was anticipated to make a special message to the country, and political parties would be invited to join forces in forming a new administration.

 

Protests had been taking place in Sri Lanka for days, asking the government to take swift action.

The country had also suffered a shortage in essential supplies such as food and medicines and foreign currencies, with several sectors being affected as a result.

The police also said that a 36-hour curfew came into force on Saturday evening and was lifted early Monday in a bid to ensure law and order in the country.
