President declines to name Ranugge to the Police Commission!



President Ranil Wickremesinghe has reportedly declined to approve one recommendation made by the Constitutional Council (CC) to the National Police Commission.

Mr. S. Ranugge’s name has been rejected in this manner, reports say.

According to the ‘Deshaya’ newspaper, a lengthy debate had commenced in this regard during a meeting of the CC, and a prominent group of civil society members representing the CC had pointed out that no one can reject the recommendations made by the CC.

However, the CC is yet to take a final decision in this regard, the newspaper had added.

Meanwhile, sources from the President’s Office say that after the President approved 06 out of the 07 recommendations made, the CC has been informed to make another recommendation.
