RE : APPOINTMENT OF Dr. M. U. A Tennakoon as NARBO ACTING VICE CHAIRPERSON
With agreement and welcome from NARBO members, Dr. M.U.A Tennakoon, PhD, DSC, Director General of the Mahaweli Authority in Sri Lanka (MASL), was hereby appointed as new NARBO Acting Vice Chairperson on 29th November 2004.
With the official resignation of Dr. Palitha Tissa Senaratne from his position as Director General of MASL, Dr. Senaratne has at the same time ceased to continue to perform his function as the NARBO Vice Chairperson.
The NARBO Charter stipulates that a Vice Chairperson can be appointed only during the NARBO General Meeting. In this context, NARBO Secretariat consulted with NARBO Chairperson in a meeting in Jakarta, 10th October, whereby NARBO Chairperson recommended that a process be adopted to enable Dr. Tennakoon to act as the Acting Vice Chairperson, with agreement from NARBO members.
Dr. Tennakoon warmly accepted NARBO Secretariat’s offer for him to act as the Acting Vice Chairperson last 10th October.
NARBO Secretariat submitted to NARBO members on this context at the occasion of NARBO workshop (29-30 November 2004) to accept Dr. Tennakoon as the NARBO Acting Vice Chairperson until the succeeding Vice Chairperson gets appointed during the next NARBO General Meeting.
