The President's Media Division announced that the President has removed the governors of the Northern, Eastern, and North Western Provinces.
It was recently reported that the President's Office had requested the governors of the Sabaragamuwa, Uva, Northern, Easter, North-Western, and Western Provinces to step down.
However, the governors in response said that as no official communication was delivered to them, they would continue to function as governors.
On Monday (15) evening, the President had taken measures to remove Northern Province Governor Jeevan Thiagarajah, Eastern Province Governor Anuradha Yahampath, and North-Western Province Governor Admiral of the Fleet Wasantha Karannagoda.
The President's Media Division said the new governors will be appointed on Wednesday (17).
