Teaching appointments for politically victimized
The Cabinet of Ministers that looked into the grievances of
politically victimized persons in the past has granted approval to
appoint 242 persons as teachers.
Accordingly the Cabinet has informed Provincial Chief Secretaries to
take necessary steps to grant these trainee teacher appointments by
relevant Provincial Councils with effect from 01 September, 2000 without
payment of arrears and subject to the fulfilment of qualifications set
out in the relevant Gazette Notification.
This is a Cabinet decision taken in the year 2001 and the decision
was conveyed on August 27, 2008. Therefore these appointments have no
relevance at all to the Western Provincial Council Elections, a press
release issued by the Ministry of Education said.
