A meeting of Women In Business And Politics. They’re really quite capable, that 50% of the population.
To quote Minister Of Child Development And Women’s Affairs Tissa Karaliyadda, “When a woman is given authority in a department or a ministry they tend to suppress other women are under their administration out of jealousy. This situation will lead to inefficiency in that particular organization. Hence always the main chair should be given to a male and the assistant should be a female”. Er, no. I always thought it was odd that women’s affairs was under a man but now it seems completely wrong. On the other hand, Marvyn Silva is Public Relations Minister, so perhaps they chose ministries on Opposites Day.
It also seems that Mr. Karaliyadda isn’t the adept at child development either. In 2012 he said that students shouldn’t be punished stringently, only caned. Except kids really shouldn’t be caned at school.
Seriously, not to belabor a point, but these guys really aren’t so good at the modern governing stuff.
