Polls Chief halts transfers, recruitment in State Sector

Elections Commissioner Dayananda Dissanayake has instructed all Ministry Secretaries not to effect promotions or make new recruitments to State institutions and corporations until the forthcoming Southern Provincial election is over.

The deadlines for submitting of applications and the dates fixed for interviews for new appointments will have to be extended, he says.

The Elections Chief has instructed all Ministry Secretaries to refrain from effecting any transfers in their respective institutions and informed the President’s Secretary of this decision.

He has told them that his instructions will apply to those holding top posts in the ministries as well.

"Since there has been a spate of complaints during the previous elections on transfers, promotions, recruitment I am taking precautionary measures," the Elections Commissioner has said.
