CTU objects for elections in exam time

2013 Jul 15

Ceylon teachers union objects the decision of the Govt to hold its elections at a time Crucial GCE examinations are held.

It is mentioned in a media announcement issued by the secretary of CTU Mr. Joseph Stalin.

He further states that holding elections in August, in which Advanced Level examinations and Grade 5 scholarship exams are held, is heavily unfair for the students.

He says that when 2012 PC elections were held in the same month of August, no action was taken by the election commissioner to prevent the disturbances caused to the students.

Mr. Stalin says that when elections are held in countries like India, the authorities take notice of national examination time tables.
