The new Governors will be appointed to three provinces by the President on Wednesday (17), the President’s Media Division said.

President Wickremesinghe has earlier asked governors of several provinces to resign, as it is customary for the governors to resign when a new president assumes office.

However, after the current president took office, the governors did not resign according to that tradition, so the President waited for some time for them to resign.
