Though the five member committee that probed the 2011 GCE Advanced Level results fiasco held certain officials at the data processing unit of the Examination Department responsible for the blunder, it was up to the President to take appropriate action against them, committee secretary Dhara Wijetilaka said today.

“Since the committee was appointed by President Rajapaksa, the report was handed over to him and it is up to him to act accordingly,” Mrs. Wijetilaka said.

“We are not ready to comment on the findings or recommendations of the report or to make it a public document. It is entirely the responsibility of the Presidential Secretariat to act on the recommendations and release it to the public,” Mrs. Wijetilaka stressed.

Asked as to why the committee did not inquire into the core issue, the controversial Z-score, she said the committee was not mandated to pass judgments on the Z-score and therefore did not invite Prof. R.O. Thatil who reportedly invented the Z-score for University enrolment in Sri Lanka. (Sandun A. Jayasekera)

    Why should always the President should action on all matters.
    What is the use of having Ministers for different functions?
    Like in olden days President , can be the MAHARAJAH and rule the country in a better manner than employing all the Ministers & sundries.

    Then why is that a recommendation was made to the effect that UGC should consult a wider set of experts to design Z score ?? isn't the committee admitting that there is some issue with the Z score ??. In that case what is the purpose of the report. Are we doing justice to our sons and daughters.
