BREAKING: Sri Lanka Reinstates Ousted Prime Minister

Sri Lanka’s sacked Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was reinstated on Sunday, a legislator said, ending a 51-day political crisis in the island nation.

Wickremesinghe was sworn in by President Maithripala Sirisena, who sacked him on October 26 and triggered a power struggle that brought the country’s government to a standstill.

Legislator Harsha de Silva, who attended the swearing-in ceremony, tweeted a photo from the president’s office where Wickremesinghe took his oath.
