Sri Lanka’s new PM Ranil Wickremesinghe struggles to form unity government

Colombo, 13/5:Sri Lanka’s new prime minister was struggling Friday to forge a unity government and forestall an imminent economic collapse after a senior opposition figure refused to helm the finance ministry.


Ranil Wickremesinghe was sworn in late on Thursday to navigate his country through the worst downturn in its history as an independent nation, with months of shortages and blackouts inflaming public anger.


The 73-year-old insists he has enough support to govern and has approached several potential allies to join his administration.
