Principals take woes to SC

By Stanley Samarasinghe
Supreme Court on Friday (30) granted leave to proceed with a fundamental rights violation applications filed by 98 school principals complaining of failure of authorities to give them due promotions to the Sri Lanka Education Administrative Service.

The Bench comprising Justices Dr. Shiranee Bandaranayaka, P.A. Ratnayaka and S.I. Imam fixed this case for February 25.
J.C. Weliamuna instructed by Lilantha de Silva appearing for petitioners submitted to court that all of them are qualified Grade 1, Class 3 principals with seniority and long years of service.

The continuous failure of the respondents to make the said promotions on seniority and merit basis is frustrating their legitimate expectations, the counsel submitted.

Weliamuna sought court to give an order to the respondents directing them to implement their promotion system.
Public Service Commission and its members, Secretary to the Ministry of Education and the Attorney General have been cited as respondents in the application.
