Sources say that Dr. PB Jayasundara, who is to step down as the Secretary to the President, will be appointed as the Senior Adviser to the Ministry of Finance.
PB Jayasundara has submitted his resignation letter to the President and is due to resign from the post of Secretary to the President from December 31st.
Despite criticism of Jayasundera’s role as Secretary to the President, we feel that his appointment to a higher post in the Ministry of Finance is an appropriate step. This is because he is the most experienced official in the country at the moment in terms of the foreign funding mechanisms that are essential to the country’s economy.
Therefore, it is advisable to seek his services even in this difficult situation. The ruling party politicians who are strongly critical of him are only spending the money provided. They have no knowledge or even sense of making money.
