A political solution to the national issue based on devolution of power both at local government and provincial level will be implemented within the next two years, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday. 

The Prime Minister said this during a ceremony held to mark the 125th anniversary of Skandawarodya College in Chunmakam in the Jaffna District last morning.   


“We had several discussions on a political solution to the national issue but unfortunately we could not implement anything as we did not have a majority. However, I would like to say that we are close to a political solution. I and my party are for a political solution based on devolution of power. We are looking at a political solution based on devolving power at local government and political level,” the Prime Minister said.   


The Prime Minister said the government intends to devolve power in both local government and provincial level so that there will not be any conflict between the local bodies and the provincial councils.   


“Our concern is the wastage of resources that takes place when power is dissolved but I believe we can resolve these matters.” he added.   


While stating that Jaffna and Colombo have been leading districts when it comes to education in the past, he said Jaffna had been famous for teaching maths. He said this status had to be rebuilt.
