COLOMBO (DAILY MIRROR) - The Grama Niladhari Exam will be conducted in the first week of December to fill three thousand Grama Niladhari vacancies, Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardane said.

He said all those appointments would be finalised within three months.

"The Grama Niladhari exam will be conducted in the first week of December. Applications have been invited for about three thousand Grama Niladhari vacancies.

Legally, all the applicants will have the opportunity to participate in the examination. We hope to finalize all those appointments within three months. In the remote areas where there are Grama Niladhari vacancies, they can be filled after conducting the examination on the basis of special qualifications," he said.

The Prime Minister stated this at the Vavuniya District Food Security Programme held recently at the Vavuniya District Secretariat, in conjunction with the New Village - New Country National Programme.

"The government is taking steps to provide technical assistance and machinery to improve all local government institutions and lead to rapid development. As the Minister of Local Government,  I transformed the Vavuniya Urban Council into a Municipal Council. It is a pride for Vavuniya. Vavuniya district has not got a municipal council so far. It can lead to new projects and the city of Vaviniya will be transformed into the municipal law. A few people said that the rural area should be exempted from this and given as a separate Grama  Niladhari Division or Sub-Grama  Niladhari Division. We pay special attention to that.

"Special care is taken to make the service system between the urban environment and the rural environment successful," he said.

    Select people from existing government servant cadre which is biggest in the world per person. Politicians give appointments, we have to pay their salaries from our earnings take as taxes. Enough is enough

    His grandmother has agreed to pay these salaries.

    Lol. Wasting imf money nicely. No plan to reduce government sector unwanted staff but recruitment of new ones. Same cycle will continue and only the general public will suffer.
