It is reported that Gamini Senarath will assume duties as the new Secretary to the President on January 19.
P.B. Jayasundera, who had submitted his resignation letter to the President last December, officially resigned from the Presidential Secretariat yesterday.
Accordingly, Gamini Senarath will be the Secretary to the President from January 19.
Gamini Sedara Senarath is an outstanding First Class Officer with extensive experience in the Sri Lanka Administrative Service. He graduated from the University of Kelaniya with his first degree and joined the Sri Lanka Administrative Service in 1984. He holds a Masters’s Degree in Computer Technology from the University of Colombo and has completed a number of overseas courses.
Gamini Senarath, who was the Chief of Staff to the President during Mahinda Rajapaksa’s tenure as President, served as the Secretary to the Prime Minister after Mahinda Rajapaksa became the Prime Minister in November 2019.
It is hoped that Gamini Senarath, who has a particularly high level of public relations ability, will bridge the gap between the Presidential Secretariat and government ministers in the recent past and create the conditions for President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to carry out his duties at a better level.
