Buddhika reveals credentials of MPs- 142 Without AL, 94 not even OL

Buddhika reveals credentials of MPs: "Main opposition UNP parliamentarian Buddhika Pathirana yesterday said that 142 of the 225 members in the present Parliament had failed the GCE Advanced Level Examination while 94 members had failed GCE Ordinary Level examination,

“This is today’s state of affairs in the Parliament where the country was being administrated. Although I don’t have statistics on the situation in the Provincial Councils and other local bodies, I’m sure it cannot be better” Mr. Pathirana told the Daily Mirror.

He said he agreed that examinations meant brushing up knowledge and not intelligence because there were people who achieved so much without paper qualifications.

 “There have been and there still are successful politicians and intellectuals though they haven’t had good results but there aren’t many of them. The educational background and qualities of most politicians chosen by the people are degrading,” he said.

Total foreign assets, which include foreign assets of the banking sector, amounted to $ 10.5 billion at end July 2014. Gross official reserves were equivalent to 5.9 months of imports, while total foreign assets were equivalent to 6.9 months of imports.

China Maritime Silk Road Is Sri Lanka’s Boon as Xi Visits - Bloomberg

China Maritime Silk Road Is Sri Lanka’s Boon as Xi Visits - Bloomberg: "A view from Sri Lanka’s capital of land curving into a sea once famed for its pearls now shows giant yellow digger trucks piling boulders. It’s another show of China’s increasing global influence.

Once fought over by European powers, Sri Lanka is now benefiting from the attention of Asia’s biggest economies, drawn to its Indian Ocean location along some of the world’s busiest sea-lanes. The Chinese-financed $1.4 billion “Colombo Port City” project is its largest foreign-funded investment on record."

Pope approves Sri Lanka’s first saint without second miracle confirmed | Toronto Star

Pope approves Sri Lanka’s first saint without second miracle confirmed | Toronto Star: "Pope Francis signed off Wednesday on Sri Lanka’s first saint, bending the Vatican’s rules once again to bypass the usual requirement that a second miracle be confirmed.
Francis is expected to canonize the Rev. Giuseppe Baz, a 17th-century missionary, during his January visit to Sri Lanka.
Vaz was born in Goa, India, in 1651, but chose to work in Sri Lanka amid persecution of Catholics by Dutch colonial rulers, who were Calvinists. He is credited with having revived the Catholic faith in the country."
