The Minister said that in addition to 4511 recruited, another 20,000 were recruited through the Public Administration and Management Ministry. He said the recruitment reflects the democracy of the Good Governance Government since they were recruited via a test. He said 65,000 persons faced the test.
The Minister said these youth were lucky because 47,000 unemployed graduates were awaiting employment opportunities. Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Minister Daya Gamage were present.
