The Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) has decided to boycott the discussion that will be held tomorrow (22) with the Presidential Committee headed by Deputy Minister Harsha De Silva.

The SLMC Management had decided to boycott discussions with the Presidential Committee until the SLMC hold a discussion regarding the issue that occurred during last committee meeting.
The parties including the Attorney General’s Department, Sri Lanka Medical Council, Higher Education Ministry and the Health Ministry have been summoned for tomorrow’s meeting.
However, the Deputy Minister had been informed about SLMC’s absence for tomorrow’s meeting in written format, a representative of SLMC stated.
