Two hundred activists from the Eksath Lakwanitha Peramuna were appointed justices of the peace at a function chaired by Deputy Minister Dr. Anoma Gamage at Temple Trees yesterday (16).

Speaking at the occasion, Dr. Gamage said the appointments had been made covering the entire country and based on qualifications.

She urged the appointees to safeguard the dignity of their new position, be exemplary and serve all irrespective of any differences.

The Deputy Minister said that women had made many strides under the Government formed by the UNP and SLFP.

Foremost among them was the fulfilment of the Prime Minister’s promise to ensure 25% female representation at the upcoming local government polls, she said.

Commenting on female entrepreneurship, she said the Government would assist women to launch and develop income generation projects.

She added that action would be taken to appoint 1,000 female lottery agents countrywide in consultation with the chairperson of the National Lotteries Board.
