Had she insisted on a vote on Monday, the deal would have failed in parliament.

Opposition members accuse her of losing control of events. Some of her own party members taunt her to “govern or quit.”

Meanwhile, victims of the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka were laid to rest on Tuesday, with one funeral procession following another all day.
