    I hope by now you would have received your voting documents in respect of the elections to the Council for the session 2015/2016. These voting documents will contain the voting papers and the election statements and bio data of the candidates.

     

    As your President, I would appeal to you to cast your valuable votes early using your professional judgement to candidates of your choice based on the election statements and bio data they  have provided and without  getting  influenced by any one who resorts to unethical practices. 


    I would  take this opportunity to request both the candidates and the voters to  be extremely mindful of our professional ethics and conduct, especially during this crucial period leading up to the election which is on August 26, 2015.

     

    Eng. (Dr) S B Wijekoon

    PRESIDENT

    On perusing the many e mails that have been circulated over the past few days with regard to canvassing for candidates at IESL elections,  I wish to remind all our learned and professional Corporate Members of IESL that such e mails have been circulated for the first time in the 109 year old history of IESL. This is not the correct and accepted spirit and procedure to elect learned professional representatives as office bearers to the oldest professional body in Sri Lanka, the IESL. 


    It is understood that most of those who are contesting the elections especially for the top senior posts are very well known and recognized personalities among the Corporate Members due to the yeoman service they have rendered to the IESL and hence they will not require any   further introductions and canvassing. The Corporate Members on making their decision to vote shall refer the Bio data and election statement of the candidates and then make comparative decisions on the professional competency, ethics and professional conduct of the candidates to be elected to this August Forum. In keeping with our hallowed and dedicated professional standards, canvassing for individual candidates in any form should not be resorted to, because then there is the ultimate possibility of overlooking the criteria mentioned above, to get the best possible Council elected"


    Hence, I expect all candidates and members to act professionally in the larger interest of the IESL when casting their valuable vote at the elections

    Chief Returning Officer

    Voting papers in respect of the elections to the Council for the Session 2015/2016  along with bio data and election statements of candidates and two envelopes marked ‘A’ and ‘B’ were  sent under registered post on July 24, 2015 to all Corporate Members who were on the roll of the Institution on June 26, 2015 , the date the nominations for the elections were closed.


    If a Voting Paper is received by the Chief Returning Officer without Envelopes “A” and “B” will be considered as invalid and will be rejected by the Chief Returning Officer. A Voting paper that is disfigured or enclosed in a disfigured Envelope A will also be considered as invalid and will be rejected by the Chief Returning Officer.


    Any member who does not receive his Voting Paper by August 3, 2015 is kindly requested to contact the Executive Secretary.


    On behalf of all Returning Officers, I take this opportunity to thank  all of you  for the enthusiasm you displayed  in making nominations. 
    I believe that the same enthusiasm will prevail when it comes to casting your vote and that in this respect you will act professionally in accordance with the election rules in force..
