No intention of changing appointments recently made – President

86

Pressure is being mounted against certain appointments recently made by the President and the Government, the President’s Media Division (PMD) says, adding that these appointments were made with the utmost consideration of our country’s sovereignty, national security and implementation of “Saubhagyaye Dekma” policy statement.

Further, the President emphasizes such appointments have been made after careful scrutiny of loyalty to the nation, qualifications and background of these individuals so that policies of the Government can move forward in a successful manner, the PMD’s release read.

President has stressed that he has no intention of changing such appointments made after deep thinking or to replace them with different persons in the face of pressure.

As such, President has politely requested everyone not to pressure him or the Government to change these appointments, the PMD noted.

President is of the view that expressing opinions against these appointments will not only make the appointees unable to carry out their duties and responsibilities properly, but also will weaken the Government’s process by underestimating them in the society.
