Meanwhile former Ministers Namal Rajapaksa, Chamal Rajapaksa, Basil Rajapaksa, and Shasheendra Rajapaksa have also not accepted any posts.

According to reports former ministers Gamini Lokuge, Mahindananda Aluthgamage, Johnston Fernando and Rohitha Abeygunawardena will also not be accepting Cabinet positions.
