    May 24, 2015

    Sri Lanka's Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe on Saturday (23) called on the youth to elect public representatives, who are capable of solving their problems, at the forthcoming parliamentary elections.

    Addressing an event held to mark the National Youth Day, the Prime Minister said a National Government would be formed after the forthcoming General Election.


    The National Youth Day event was jointly organized by the National Youth Services Council, the State Ministry for Youth Affairs and the Sri Lanka Youth Federation. It was held under the patronage of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe at the National Youth Centre in Maharagama.


    Prime Minister Wickremesinghe noted that the young generation has been ignored over the past few years and said this government has planned a large amount of work for youth development over the next five years.


    The Prime Minister said that preparations are underway for a General Election and that the youth who had gathered will be casting their votes to elect public representatives from various parties for another Parliament. He said this is not an issue for him since they expect to make the entire Parliament a Government with the intention of solving the problems of the youth and of the country. As such the Prime Minister appealed to the youth when casting their votes to choose representatives who have the capability of sorting out their problems. The PM told them not to play politics and elect only representatives representing all political parties who can solve their problems.


    A highlight of the event was the opportunity given to the youth to direct their problems to the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister found immediate solutions to issues presented by the youth.


    The National Youth Day was commemorated on behalf of the Sri Lanka Youth Society Federation established on 23rd May 1983. Around 1,500 young men and women of Youth Club Regional Councils representing all the Districts in the island joined in the Commemoration. The Prime Minister feted former Secretaries of the Sri Lanka Youth Club Federation.


    Speaking at the event, the State Minister of Youth Affairs, Niroshan Perera said that his Ministry will engage in various programs in the future to eradicate the unemployment of the youth in the country.


    Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapaksha, Prime Minister's Secretary Saman Ekanayake and Chairman of the National Youth Services Council Eranda Weliange were among those that joined the event.
