Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) Chairman Professor Carlo Fonseka’s term of service came to an end today after serving for five and half years.

Speaking to the media while leaving the SLMC premises, Prof. Fonseka said his tenure had ended today and added that no request had been made by the government for an extension of his service.

I was appointed to this post in 2012 by former health minister Maithripala Sirisena. My official tenure was to end on December 31, 2016, as a SLMC Chairman’s tenure is generally valid for a period of 5 years,” he said.

He said however, the President had taken steps to extend his tenure by 6 more months.

I have handed over my resignation one month earlier. I am 85 now. I thought I would not be able to perform my service effectively,” he said. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    That is my class-mate and lovable friend. I did not know that he is one and a half years older than me. Iam 83.8years. I wish Carlo a very peaceful retirement. I still have grey and black hair. Probably, I did not use my brains as much as he did. GOD BLESS CARLO !! Susantha.
