Former Prime Minister and Leader of the United National Party (UNP) Ranil Wickremesinghe speaking to media yesterday (24) said the contribution of the youth of this country would be very important in seeking solutions to the prevailing economic crisis.
“This matter should be resolved within Parliament itself. Parliament should take the fiscal power and six working committees should be appointed to carry this out. These six committees should invite three youths each, an assembly of 200 – 300 members from youth organisations should be formed, that assembly should be convened once every three months, and that youth voice should be given the opportunity to decide the method in which that youth membership is elected. Having those ideas, the decisions can be made in Parliament.”
