Elections for various sports committees to be conducted according to laid down regulations.

Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara says that the election to appoint committee members for the National Olympic Committee will be held at the end of next month. He disclosed this at a media briefing held in Colombo today. Discussions in this regard are underway with the International Olympic Committee as well. He explained that the election of members was delayed due to a delay in receiving audit reports. The minister pledged that all elections for various sports committees will be conducted according to laid down regulations.

Responding to a question raised by journalists the minister said that he is in no way involved in selections of Sri Lanka Cricket. Selections will be carried out by the Selections Committee. He added that newly appointed coach Chandika Hathurusinghe will be given fullest support and that he would be included in the Selections Committee at the next Executive Committee Meeting. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Cricket will announce the national cricket team’s Limited-Overs Captain, on the 9th of January. This was decided following a discussion held yesterday over the appointment of a ‘white-ball captain’ to lead the Sri Lankan side into future matches.
