Major General Jagath Gunawardena yesterday assumed duties as the 55th Chief of Staff of the Army in a simple ceremony held at the Army Headquarters, amid religious observances.  

He was appointed to the post following the retirement of Major General Sathyapriya Liyanage.

He paid his first formal courtesy call on the Chief of Defence Staff and Army Commander Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva and during the exchange of views the Commander underlined the need to transform the Army to match future challenges and promote the professional career prospects in the organisation while enhancing welfare roles for all ranks.  


Meanwhile, Major General Suraj Bangsajayah assumed duties as the 42nd Commandant of the Sri Lanka Army Volunteer Force (SLAVF) on Monday at the SLAVF Headquarters.
