Sri Lanka's new president will be elected through Parliament on 20 July, a report by NewsWire said on Friday.
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was sworn in as Sri Lanka's interim President on Friday until Parliament elects a successor to Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Wickremesinghe was acting President since Rajapaksa fled the country.
He was sworn in as the Interim President before Chief Justice Jayantha Jayasuriya a short while ago, reports The Daily Mirror.
The speaker of parliament accepted a resignation letter from President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, having verified its authenticity after it was flown from Singapore late on Thursday.
"From this point, we will move to constitutionally appoint a new president," Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena, said on Friday.
Rajapaksa arrived in Singapore following a stopover in the Maldives, after he fled Sri Lanka amid a wave of unrest as his island nation grapples with its worst economic crisis in decades.
