Situation gets better, now I have no intention of leaving: CBSL Chief

There is progress in the path in which the country moves forward in comparison with the political instability occurred earlier, said Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) Dr. Nandalal Weerasinghe, speaking to a briefing held today (19).

Accordingly, the CBSL Chief stressed that he believes that he will be able to work more successfully.

“Was the political instability that existed at the time I spoke last time to continue, whatever policies the Central Bank implements may have not worked successfully. Then it would be hard for anyone to continue, not just me. So in that case, I was compelled to warn. That was what I said at the time. In view of the situation then and now, a Prime Minister of some kind has been appointed in Parliament. There was no Cabinet then and the Prime Minister had also resigned. As of today, a legal system of some kind can be enforced. Violence in the country has completely disappeared and there is peace. As of now, I see that there is progress on a certain path. So, a lot of people have asked me not to go. I had that in my mind too. Therefore, I am confident that I will be able to continue my work successfully,” Dr. Weerasekara said.

The CBSL Chief had earlier stated that he may resign from his post should the political instability caused by the unrest in the country on May 09 continue.
