Appointing a politician as Central Bank Governor creates bad precedence:- Anura Dissanayake

Anura Dissanayake

JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake has criticized that appointing a politician as Governor of the Central Bank would create a bad precedence.

He made the criticism while addressing a press conference on Sunday, September 12. Anura Dissanayake said:

“The move to appoint a politician to the Central Bank Governorship, which is an internationally recognized independent institute, will create a bad image on the country and its economy at the international level.

It is inevitable that Sri Lanka will be considered a black economy as laws are drafted to allow money laundering in the country and a politician is taking over the Central Bank.

Ajith Nivard Cabraal suffered a huge dent to his reputation globally due to his involvement in Greek Bond incident, Hedging agreement and swindling millions of rupees through a programme to boost country’s image in the US and appointing such a person as the CB Governor, will create even a worse image of country’s economy than today. There are no legal provisions to appoint Cabraal as the CB Governor with ministerial powers and that there are stipulated powers and duties to the post of CB Governor.

Numerous state officials quit their posts recently and only the government servants who are acting on the wrong decisions of the Government can remain in their positions. Director General of the Department of National Zoological Gardens Ishini Wickramasinghe, several medical experts of the Covid task Force and the Central Bank Governor resigned from their posts. Only the persons who are ready to act on wrong decisions of the Government can remain in their seats today."
