New changes for SLRC, ITN & SLBC! Featured

Several administrative changes are in the offing with the mediation of President Maithripala Sirisena to the national television station Rupavahini, Independent Television Network (ITN) and Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC).

These changes will be implemented based on appeals made to the President by the staff of these institutions and he is expected to discuss the issue with the new Media Minister and make the relevant changes, according to Presidential Secretariat sources.

With the Media Ministerial post being made a non-Cabinet position and as the head of the Cabinet is the President, the media Cabinet responsibilities will also be entrusted upon the President.

Accordingly, in all Media Ministry activities the ministerial Cabinet papers would be presented by the President.
