Others tipped to be sworn in as Cabinet Ministers are S.B.Dissanayake, Rambukwella and Sarath Amunugama. Dissanayake is likely to be appointed as High Education Minister, Rambukwella as Media Minister and Sarath Amunugama also to be given an important portfolio. All are elected parliamentarians from the Kandy district.
