Strictly no politics for public servants - President

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa yesterday instructed all heads of Government institutions and members of director boards to refrain from engaging in political activities during the forthcoming election period.

In a special directive, the President underlined that the heads of Government institutions and members of director boards should not be involved in political activities in favour of any party, and if they want to be involved in political activities they can do so after resigning from their respective posts.

The President has stressed that no public property, funds or State vehicles should be used for election work, adding that the law would be strictly implemented against any individual who violates this order.

“The President does not want the officials to do politics for the Government. He wants them to run their respective institutions efficiently without corruption and make them profit earning entities. The public institutions are dependent on public money and those institutions should not be a burden on the public,” the statement noted.
