* Major rift in Sri Lanka government doctors' union
Fri, Jul 25, 2014, 09:20 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 25, Colombo: A major split has occurred in the powerful government doctors' union of Sri Lanka, Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) after the Central Working Committee of the union has decided to remove two trustees.

The Central Committee has passed a no confidence motion last month and unanimously decided to remove Dr. Lalantha Ranasingha and Dr. Nihal Rathnasena, from their duties with the GMOA immediately, a Central Committee member of the GMOA Dr. Haritha Aluthge said at a press briefing today.

The two trustees have been accused of working against the decisions taken by the GMOA.

A group of Central Working Committee and other members have protested the election of the two trustees, Dr. Aluthge said, adding that the Central Committee and the representatives had no trust in the two trustees. He emphasized that the trustees have to work under the guidance of the Central Committee.

The trustees are elected at the general assembly for a period of three years.

The Executive Committee of the GMOA has been suspended under a judiciary ruling and the Central Committee is the apex body of the GMOA now.
