Sun, Jan 20, 2013, 10:18 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 20, Colombo: The Central Committee of Sri Lanka's ruling Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) will met tomorrow (21) afternoon at Temple Trees under the patronage of party leader President Mahinda Rajapaksa to discuss several crucial issues, SLFP sources say.

The party will discuss the impending cabinet reshuffle as first priority, sources say. Ministers of several key ministries are to be changed and several new deputy ministers are to be appointed at this reshuffle.

Another crucial issue that is to be discussed is appointing a new electoral organizer for the Kelaniya electorate. The position was vacated by Minister of Public Relations Mervyn Silva following the alleged killing of a party activist local government member of Kelaniya by the Minister's staff.

Proposals have been mooted to appoint Gampaha district organizer Minister Basil Rajapaksa and national list MP Malini Fonseka as the organizer of this electorate.
