The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) will take legal action if the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) holds its election against the relevant rules and regulations without gazetting, GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge said. Addressing a press conference held at the GMOA Head Quarters in Colombo, yesterday, he said that strangely, the Health minister’s public relations officer has also handed over his nominations for the election, while his term as a SLMC member ends today. The nominations close on 23rd.
According to Dr.Aluthge said that the GMOA had already sent letters expressing their objection to all relevant authorities in the SLMC.
If the election is held without considering the objection of the GMOA, the representatives of the GMOA will give nominations and the Central Committee will work to ensure their victory, he added.
