The United National Party (UNP) yesterday highlighted the importance of increasing the representation of women in the country.

It pointed out that although women’s representation in the country needed to be 25 %, no action plan existed to accomplish this task. Speaking during the news conference UNP MP Chandrani Bandara said the current situation in the country was not favourable for the women and added the government was responsible for the situation. “A majority of government politicians have been accused of violating women’s rights by humiliating and abusing them,” she said.

    In the first place ask the Opposition Leader to call the chased UNP stalwarts back to the party and later let us talk about the participation and rights of women.

    Grace Thursday, 20 June 2013 02:35 AM

    UNP has found one more political weapon.

    Critic Roshan Thursday, 20 June 2013 02:38 AM

    We need women parliamentarians having a beautiful heart but not only with beautiful make-up appearances.

    Grace Thursday, 20 June 2013 02:45 AM

    Have you forgotten how your party violated the rights and humiliated a woman ( Late Mrs.Sirimavo Bandaranayake) after her party lost the elections in 1977.

    MagodisThuma Thursday, 20 June 2013 02:55 AM

    Rights of all people should be respected.Not only Women. Give More candidacy to women in the Wayamba and Madayama. Less corruption.
