That was due to some politicians who do political business without knowing the political culture and history. They fear that they would not find work to do when a permanent political solution for Tamils is found.

Peiris has said that the consequences of external intervention in the domestic affairs of countries, and the havoc it has caused resulting in the loss of precious human lives and the governability of nations being placed at risk, are today evident in many parts of the world, and the people of Sri Lanka certainly have no wish to exchange the peace and stability they now enjoy for this state of affairs.
Minister Parrilla said that levels of confidence in the manner of functioning of many organs of the system are rapidly falling because of the obvious reality that these institutions are politicized, and there is a total absence of uniform standards being applied across the board without discrimination.
Minister Peiris said that Sri Lanka, at the United Nations General Assembly, has consistently called for lifting of the economic blockade against Cuba, adopting the position that trade embargoes of this kind are entirely By Mirudhula Thambiah ceylontoday.

Sir Nice, speaking to Ceylon Today, said, 'I am eagerly looking to be in Sri Lanka to help sort out the long standing problem it is facing. Certainly, I look forward to be in your island as I have not been to that part of the world for a long time," He said though he was contacted with regard to obtaining his consent to join the advisory team, he had so far not heard about his schedule from Colombo.
Sir Nice, who did not wish to elaborate on the role he would undertake in Sri Lanka, said, "Till I get there, I will not be able to speak on anything.
Sir de Silva will be present with the rest of the team at Poonagarin Central School on the first two days.
Earlier, the commission said the advisory panel will not sit at hearings but will only remain as part of the advisory board and nothing beyond. The new report has, according to the news agency, accused the United Nations of failing to protect Sri Lankan civilians caught up in the final phases of the conflict.
The commission's office could not confirm the date of arrival of the five international experts: Kaushal who will be assisting Sir de Silva in the mission. Soofi, who is one of the five internationally renowned war crime and legal experts who would advice the Commission probing Missing Persons, said he had accepted the government's invitation.
However, at the moment he has taken up several international assignments and is trying to arrange a time to make it to Sri Lanka. He added his office is working on the 'conclusion' and 'objections' of the process he would undertake in being part of the advisory panel. Avdhash Kaushal said he too was waiting for the green light from Sri Lanka.
The report contains only two substantive recommendations for the future: The two substantive recommendations of the Committee again point to the lack of a robust policy framework — free of ideological baggage — within the government to consider the SAITM issue afresh. Embedded within this policy position is the aim of vested interests to make medical education open to anyone who has the ability and willingness to pay for it. It does not offer any solutions for the fundamental issues arising from SAITM, within a broad policy framework that takes into consideration the features that makes medical education different from all other forms of education.
The government clearly needs to wake up to the universal presumption — in societies relatively free of corruption — that medical education is an inviolable public good that is ethically incompatible with the profit motive. Firstly, it must be pointed out that the idea of a not-for-profit P3 is a contradiction in terms. A P3 venture typically involves a private entity financing a project in return for a promised stream of payments directly from government or indirectly from users.
It is clearly an imposition upon the SLMC that has stood to defend the current system that has maintained appropriate standards of medical education so far. The sinister targets and the paths chosen to achieve them are based on vested interests and ignorance of the damage such policies are bound to inflict on quality of medical care and patient safety in the country.
It needs to be recognised at least by the reasonable sections of the mega-cabinet that the purpose of the medical education process is to produce physicians capable of safely providing high-quality medical care to patients. As such, the design and conduct of the educational programmes provided by medical schools and graduate medical education programmes must ensure that new doctors are adequately prepared to face the challenges they will encounter on entry into practice.
Current systems, globally, rely on meeting these requirements by imparting a satisfactory level of foundational knowledge through undergraduate training, and in-depth graduate training through residency in a hospital, under supervision.
Sri Lanka, as a low income country with a chronically under-resourced health system typified by chronic shortages of medications, supplies, facilities, and management systems, faces other secondary drivers of the need to strengthen medical education. An examination of the evolution of the medical education system in the US shows a history of effectively insulating against private sector involvement in this most market-oriented country of the world.
Examination of the key features that prompted this particular approach point to vital requirements of effective medical education SAITM currently lacks. The opportunity to gain some clinical experience was afforded only towards the end of the long apprenticeship. The quality of the training varied depending on the capacity and conscientiousness of the master, and keener students went overseas to learn at hospitals of Paris, London or Edinburgh. The first recorded formal medical education in America began as a course of lectures on anatomy and midwifery —started in by William Shippen Jr.
It is significant that the first American medical school was conceived as part of an institution of learning, and connected with a large public hospital. In Sri Lanka, we find the government engaged in a poisonous quarrel with the profession on objections to SAITM granting medical degrees without an affiliation with a reputed university or access to a public hospital, vital for academic credibility and to further clinical training respectively.
