While condemning the present system of allocating portfolios to a ministry, the opposition UNP said today that there should be new standard when allocating portfolios.

“A ministry’s subjects should not be complicated,” UNP leader Ranil Wickrememsinghe said.

He said that having different subjects under one minister gave the loop hole to avoid responsibilities.

He also said both that Provincial Council and Central government ministers must work together when it came to the same subject.

Speaking at the Annual General Meeting of the National Trade Union Services Federation, UNP and Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said Government Departments should also put under the related ministry.

He said that the government services were in a state of disarray today.

“Meteorology Department is a good example for a failed department. It could not inform the people of the adverse weather conditions although the United States had passed out the information in time,” he said.

The UNP had further proposed monitoring committees in its draft constitution which have the power to monitor each ministry and also the Minister. Pix by Kithsiri de Mel

    Yes.Peoples do not know Who are the Ministers and What Subject they deal.There is no consistant in allocating the Subjects.No body Know what happened yesterday and what will they do tomorow. Another big mistake is peoples don't know where is the ministry or Department is situated.When our Young days we know who are our Ministers But now ask any student about ministers even they don't know the education minister.Must be a standard and consistancy will followed.
