RANIL WICKREMASINGHE’S FIFTY YEARS IN POLITICS REMINISCED

President’s fifty-year milestone

 

President Ranil Wickremesinghe was felicitated last evening in completing 50 years since taking oaths as a lawyer at a gala event at the Shangri La Hotel in Colombo.

Speaking at the occasion, the President said he practised law for five years and then joined the ‘chambers’ of President J.R. Jayewardene, where he then became a lawmaker.

President’s Counsel Romesh de Silva who joined the occasion said that President Ranil Wickremesinghe has never worked for self promotion but to strengthen the parliament.
