Sri Lanka’s sacked prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was reinstated on Sunday, his party stated, ending a 51-day crisis that had paralysed the island nation and pushed it towards a debt default.
Wickremesinghe, 69, was administered the oath of office by President Maithripala Sirisena, who had sacked him on October 26 in a controversial move.
