Min. Amunugama on the increasing demand for female representation

Sep 1, 2016 4:05:09 AM - newsfirst.lk

An awards ceremony was held on Wednesday to mark 84 years of the Sri Lanka Federation of University Women.

The event was graced by Minister of Special Assignments, Dr. Sarath Amunugama.

Eighty four (84) scholarships were granted to the less privileged under graduates.

Minister of Special Assignments, Dr. Sarath Amunugama pointed out that there is a large demand for female representation both, inside and outside parliament. He said it was decided to allocate 25 percent of seats for women in Pradeshiya Sabhas up to Parliament.

The minister said that after an election, according to the percentage of votes, the party secretaries will be informed to submit a list of women to represent these institutions and this is much more beneficial for women.

He went on to note that the men will have to contest, attend various meetings and even exchange fists. So, the intention was to create a female representation of 25 percent within parliament without them having to go through all of this. And this will bring about a good change where there will be the ability to create a humane and controlled outset.
