Pujith JayasundaraThe names of Senior DIGs S M Wickremesinghe, Pujith Jayasundara and Chandana Wikcremeratne have been sent to the Constitutional Council (CC) as nominees to select the next Inspectors General of Police (IGP).

The names were sent to the CC yesterday by the Presidential Secretariat and the CC will meet on April 18 at 3pm to select its choice from the three nominees as the new IGP.

IGP N. K. Illangakoon retires this week and Wickremesinghe is expected to be the acting IGP till the new IGP is picked.

N. K. Illangakoon was the 33rd IGP of Sri Lanka. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. The most suitable is Pujitha Jayasundara who has had vast experiences in various divisions in the Department and also Personality has to be taken into consideration as public image both here and abroad

  2. In Public Sector , Seniority Counts Much. In Armed Forces Officers are placed on Seniority list once one is commissioned. This will be not changed unless a serious irregularity is committed by one. There is no need to go behind Politicians for promotions. In State Banks PB and BOC Some held CEO’s position for few months only because they were promoted when they were just to retire.
