Three vie for Jaffna University VC post

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 01 December 2010, 10:01 GMT]
The next Vice Chancellor of the Jaffna University is to be named by the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa from three names recommended by the Senate of the Jaffna University. Eight academics out of twelve contested for the post of VC but only the first three who polled highest number of votes were selected. Professor Ms Vasanthy Arasaratnam of the Medical Faculty received 14 votes, the incumbent VC Professor N. Shanmugalingan and Professor Ratnajeevan Hoole received 9 votes.

Twenty five members of the University Senate were qualified to vote.

Four members were not allowed to cast their votes as they were candidates for the post of Vice Chancellor.

The names of the selected candidates have been sent to Mahinda Rajapaksa for final decision, according to University administration in Jaffna.
