Period of political appointments is over - Mangala

The economy will be strengthened while giving employment to the qualified, instead of granting political appointments, says finance mnister Mangala Samaraweera.

The period of giving jobs on the basis of politics, ethnicity or religion are over, he said at the handover of appointment letters to 77 persons recruited as Customs officers yesterday (21).

The minister advised the new appointees to overcome the ‘various killers’ who would invite them to earn money through nefarious means.
