Examinations Commissioner to be removed soon?

It is reported that the government has decided to remove the Commissioner General of Examinations - B. Sanath Pujitha, from his post.
Government sources have revealed that this is due to various complaints received by the Ministry of Education and the Presidential Secretariat regarding the Department of Examinations.
Among these are complaints on issuing results of certain exams as well as methods of conducting exams.
Following Mr. Pujitha's removal, a new Commissioner General of Examinations will be appointed after calling for applications through a Gazette notification, reports say.
