The Government Medical Officers’ Association has expressed its opposition to the appointment of Prof. Colvin Gunaratne as the new Chairman of the Sri Lanka Medical Council.

Anti-SAITM Trade Unions expressed their opposition to Prof. Gunaratne even before he was appointed.

Rumours started to circulate after the post fell vacant that Prof. Gunaratne would be appointed to the post with the backing of the Health Minister, Dr Rajitha Senaratne.

The GMOA media spokesperson Dr Samantha Aananda told our news team that its executive council would meet today (03) and would arrive at a decision on the appointment.

Meanwhile, the GMOA has decided to launch an island-wide strike next Friday (06) if the post-internship appointment list, put forward without the transfer board’s approval, is not corrected.
