Apr 26, Colombo: Sri Lanka government has planned to set up a new unit to maintain the coordination between the ministries, says Secretary to the President Lalith Weerathunge.
The gazette on allocation of the subject areas for the Ministers will be issued next week and the government hopes to maintain better coordination between the ministries, Mr. Weerathunge said.
The previous United People's Freedom Alliance government had a jumbo panel of over 100 ministers, non-cabinet ministers, and deputy causing disputes due to several ministers sharing the same subject area thereby impeding progress.
The present government expects now to clearly demarcate the powers of the ministers.
President Mahinda Rajapaksa has appointed a cabinet of 37 Ministers and 39 Deputies for them following the landslide victory in the election. The Ministers swore in before the President on April 23.
However, there is speculation that President may expand the cabinet to include another 4 ministers and a deputy.
