The oath-taking ceremony will take place at Temple Trees at 9 a.m.
The decision was made following a meeting of TNA Leader R. Sampanthan and President Rajapaksa at breakfast this morning.
The other TNA provincial ministers of the Northern Provincial Council will be sworn in before Chief Minister Wigneswaran on October 11.
The TNA had previously called on the President to administer Wigneswaran’s oath in Jaffna. However the President yesterday swore in the Central and North Western Province Chief Ministers at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday.
