OPA In The Forefront For Good Governance

Although the term of good governance came in to light especially with the previous presidential election, yet there is no any clear sign of good governance in the country. In such a situation, the academics and the professionals of the country have a great responsibility in terms of taking steps to initiate good governance and acknowledge the public on the meaning of good governance.

The above idea came in to light at a recent press conference announcing the forthcoming 29th Annual Conference of Organization of Professional Associations (OPA) themed ‘Good Governance the way forward’ and 2nd Apex Awards which is to be held on October 4, 2016 in Colombo.

In questioning the possibility of establishing good governance in a country like Sri Lanka and the initiatives that the elite group should vehemently carry out in order to establish the actual foundation for good governance within the country, OPA President Prof.

Rohan Kuruppu stated to The Sunday Leader, “In my perception, I think that it is possible to set up good governance in a country. Perhaps, I could suggest that it is possible by conducting training programs not only for the politicians but also for the senior government officials. Then we should follow it up.”

OPA Elect President and Chairman of annual conference Ruwan Gallage also stated that, “We are trying to formulate the main idea of good governance and through that we will carry a message to the public about the meaning of good governance. We will acknowledge the public to inform us if there is any violation of it or anything contradictory to good governance. Our main intention is to broad base the meaning of good governance and take it up to a good level.” (AS)

    The corrupt officers in the government and semi government organisations are misleading the politicians. It is necessary to identify them and take appropriate action first.
