Fri, Mar 28, 2014, 07:59 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 28, Batticaloa: The Eastern Provincial Council (EPC) of Sri Lanka will follow the racial ratio in the country as well as merit when filling vacancies and making new posts.

Road Development and Eastern Provincial Council spokesman M. S. Uthumalebbe has told the media following the meeting of the Council that Chief Minister Najeeb Abdul Majeed has tabled the proposal to this effect when he chaired the Council meeting.

Following the new decision current vacancies in the provincial service would be filled by qualified unemployed males and females, maintaining the racial and religious ratio from backward areas and villages.

The move is expected to reduce the unemployment problem among educated youth in the Eastern Province.

Uthumalebbe has said the Council's decision has been sent to the Eastern Province Governor for approval.
